For some, the idea or replacing old tile with new sounds time consuming and costly. Don’t worry, there’s a way to change your look without a complete tile replacement! Painting your room tile is possible and can be the change you need to fit your needs. Keep in mind, it may not last as long as a tile replacement, but there are plenty of tile paint options available that have a longer lifespan than your average paint.
The hardness of a ceramic tile floor may be an issue in a home where there are small children or elderly people susceptible to falls. Here, large area rugs may be a good idea—or you may want to consider carpeting or another softer flooring material, such as cork. For many people, though, ceramic tile flooring should be strongly considered living rooms and other family spaces.
There are a lot of similarities between ceramic tiles, and the various natural stone materials that are available. They are both hard surface flooring options which are durable, reliable and can last for years in numerous environments. The key difference is a melted glass glaze that can be applied to ceramics in order to protect them from damage and stains. This covers the natural feel of the material’s surface, replacing it with any image the manufacturers can think of, even certain types of stone.
The structural strength of a ceramic tile is based on how hot the fires were when it was baked in the kiln. Higher temperatures will result in more durable materials, such as porcelain, and a glaze can help prevent scratches. Natural stone also varies by type of material, with granite and slate being much harder than marble or limestone. However stone can have hidden faults in individual pieces, and some materials may be prone to chipping along the edges and at the corners of the square.
