There are three main options for flooring in your home: tile; hardwood; and carpet. Most people choose between tile and hardwood.
But tile has several advantages over hardwood that we feel make it a better choice most of the time to serve as your home’s flooring.
There are three key reasons, in fact, why you should choose porcelain tile over hardwood. Here, we’ll cover each reason so that you can make the best choice for your home.
Tile Is Water Resistant
Ever have water or another liquid spilled or leaked onto hardwood? If you have, then you probably didn’t enjoy the warping that came with it, or the other forms of damage.
Hardwood doesn’t handle liquids very well, but fortunately, tile does. Plus, plank-style tile can have the same warmth and look of hardwood while being water-resistant, which is the best of both worlds.
Tile Is More Durable
Tile is also more durable than hardwood floors, and can withstand damage a lot better. If you’ve had hardwood floor before, you probably saw it get scuffed, scratched, and dinged up, which can turn a beautiful floor into an eyesore that’ll just have to be replaced at some point in the future.
Tile doesn’t have those problems. You won’t have to spend as much time – or money – maintaining tile, which frees you up to do things that you’d rather do.
Tile Is More Versatile
With hardwood, you have some options as far as the general look goes. With tile, you have many more.
Tile is more versatile because you have a larger variety of colors, styles, and textures. The combinations are virtually endless. If you want to complement the chic colors and look of a room, you can definitely find tile to match. If you want to switch it up and have a different pattern in each room, you can do that too.
The variety is incredible. For example, we offer a range of tile options that give you an unlimited assortment of looks and styles – and that’s just in our decorative tile selection with brands like Fifty-Third Avenue, Puccini, and Winchester Tiles.
