With all the choices available, you will find tile flooring that can be installed in any room of your home. Many people are getting away from carpeting because of the dust mites that can accumulate in the carpet, so the possibilities are endless as to where and how you can install tile flooring. You can even find tile flooring on patios and barbeque areas. Tile flooring can be found in any flooring, home improvement, or building supply store. Many of the choices are stock items so you won’t have to wait for a special order to come in. The combinations of patterns and colors are endless with tile flooring.
Tile flooring comes in many designs and patterns. These range from simple 6 inch by 6 inch squares of a single color to marble tile with natural mixtures of colors to ceramic tiles with ornate designs painted on. Whatever your taste and design style, you are sure to find something that fits your needs. In general, bigger tiles look small spaces look larger, while smaller tiles work better on walls or in larger spaces. Installation Considerations. If you are thinking about installing tile flooring by yourself, there are several things to consider. First, make sure you have an accurate measurement of your room, so you can purchase adequate tile. A good rule of thumb is to buy about 20% more than you think you’ll need. This will provide extra for breakage as well as tiles that have to be cut to fit the space.
Once you have identified this all-encompassing ’wish list’ you will almost certainly find yourself over budget. If money is no object - no problem, but if that Lotto jackpot has so far eluded you there are things you can do to bring that budget back in line. The most obvious and often least expensive way of doubling your floor space is to make use of the basement. A properly designed and finished basement is the perfect place to have a spare guest bedroom, home theater, hobby or play rooms, additional bathroom(s), laundry facilities or a home office.
Glazed and Unglazed Tiles. Firstly, there are glazed and unglazed tiles; the glazed tiles can be cleaned very easily and do not stain as often as unglazed tiles. All you need to do is run a mop soaked in warm water with a mild detergent solution across them from time to time. The problem with glazed tiles is that they are very smooth and therefore can be quite slippery. This is dangerous, especially if the kitchen area is prone to water spillage or if there are young children in your home. To avoid this, you could choose unglazed tiles over glazed ones. Unglazed tiles will prevent the floor from being slippery and have an aesthetically pleasing textured surface. Then again, unglazed tiles will not be as durable as glazed ones - they will be relatively more prone to damage because they are not protected by that extra layer of glazing.
