Tile is a wonderful addition to your floors and walls: the perfect way to beautify the spaces we live and work in. Modern tile has a ton to offer us, whether it’s used indoors or outdoors, residentially, or commercially.
At Vision Floors & More Carpet One Floor & Home of Lafayette, IN, we’re your local tile experts and have tile products for nearly everyone. Leaning towards a tile installation for your next home improvement project? Here are some things to bear in mind.
Which type of tile will fit best in your home or business? Today’s tile comes in thousands of options, but the most popular products are made using ceramic, porcelain, or stone.
Formed out of kiln-fired clay, porcelain and ceramic tile can be glazed or left in its natural state. Stone tile adds value and texture to everything from walkways to walls.
You can install tile flooring in nearly any space with a little research and planning.
All tiles resist moisture and most (but not all) are completely waterproof. That means it’s possible to use tile all throughout your property, including:
If your tired of the same old paint or wallpaper, it might be time to consider tile.
We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again: you just can’t go wrong with the right tile backsplash. Brimming with customization potential, a tile backsplash is an easy and relatively affordable way to give your kitchen & bath a color boost.
Your tile backsplash is a lot more than a colorful home accent. It protects the walls around your stovetop from everyday grease splatters and cooking accidents, or the walls around your sink against soap suds and splashes. Tile backsplashes are very easy to clean, too.
Tile is a very popular floor for these spots, as it resists daily moisture.
Choosing a tile floor for kitchen & bath is a no-brainer. It’s made for walking, cooking, everyday rituals, and easy cleanups. We can’t keep accidents from happening, but we CAN choose a scratch and scuff resistant tile to set the stage.
Cleaning a tile floor is extremely easy. Regular sweeping will keep dirt from settling into the cracks, and an occasional mopping will make your floor shine brighter.
Sometimes you can, but maybe you shouldn’t. Here’s why:
Tile installation is a demanding job that’s messy, takes a lot of time, and needs much attention to every detail. It requires careful measuring, a perfectly flat and level floor, a steady hand for cutting, and plenty of grouting and scrubbing.
Is this something you realistically want to attempt? Honestly, most of us don’t. But that’s okay: our professional installation team is on the ready. With years of hands-on experience, why would you choose anyone else when it’s time for your next tile project?
