The worldwide trend toward home improvement is continuing unabated in most areas of Canada, with almost 70% of homeowners planning to renovate their homes in the next three years.
Of these, over 30% have listed floor replacement as a priority. If you're among these house-proud Canadians, keep reading to discover why floor tiles are the best option for you.
PORCELAIN FLOOR TILES ARE A DURABLE CHOICE
According to the Tile Council of North America, porcelain floor tiles have a water absorption rate of 0.5% or less. That means certified tiles won't freeze and crack in cold weather.
Good quality tiles are also resistant to impacts, scratches, and chips. That makes them an ideal choice for commercial and residential applications, especially in busy households with pets.
On average, top-of-the-range porcelain tiles can last a lifetime. Your floor tiles won't end up in a landfill for decades, making them an eco-friendly choice, too.
FLOOR TILES ARE EASY TO MAINTAIN AND CLEAN
When compared to hardwood flooring and carpet, floor tiles require almost no cleaning. It's easy to keep them spic-and-span using only a mop and a broom.
You'll never need to deep clean your tiled floor, and pet dander, mould, and dust can't stick to its surface. That makes this floor option a good choice for those who want to maintain hygienic, allergen-free interiors.
In the unlikely event that one of your floor tiles does crack, it's easy to replace it with a new one.
FLOOR TILES OFFER VERSATILE DESIGNS
When choosing tiles for floors, it's easy to find those that match your interiors. You can opt for floor tiles that mimic more expensive materials or choose a low-key look that won't upstage sophisticated designs.
Some of the most popular looks for floor tiles include natural stone, brick, marble, travertine, and concrete. Thanks to this diversity in design, it's easy to find tiles for floor spaces in any room.
FLOOR TILES FOR ANY ROOM
Thanks to their durability and appeal, floor tiles are an excellent choice for high-traffic areas, but they're equally well suited to any room in your home.
You can enjoy the benefits of ceramic or porcelain tiles in your bathroom, kitchen, living room, or bedroom, thanks to the abundance of available styles and colours.
Porcelain floor tile can be installed with a heating membrane to keep your floor warm! A programmable thermostat can regulate the temperature. A B Tile & Stone is an authorized dealer of Schluter’s Ditra-Heat.
FIND THE PERFECT TILES FOR YOUR STYLE
If you take all these benefits into account, it's clear that floor tiles are one of the most cost-effective options for any home. Good quality floor tiles can last a lifetime with very little maintenance and only basic cleaning.
