The drawbacks of ceramic tile flooring are minimal. Most often cited is the fact that ceramic tile is cold and hard. The coldness can actually be an advantage in very hot climates—which is one reason why it is often found throughout the home in Southwest residences. But tile can be "warmed" and softened by using rugs, or by installing radiant-heat systems below the floor.
The virtues of ceramic tile for bathrooms and kitchens are well known, but many of those advantages also make it a good choice for living rooms. Ceramic tile is durable and easy to maintain. It can handle even the highest traffic locations without showing much wear. Spills, chips and other accidents really aren't an issue provided the floor was installed correctly. And the design advantages are undeniable: modern printing techniques give you a wealth of aesthetic options for creating a floor that is truly unique to your living area.
Brick pavers and stone tiles have a lot of characteristics in common. Brick is a manufactured product, but the ingredients used are mostly natural, consisting of clay and various sediments. Stone, on the other hand, is made completely by the earth, drawn directly from the sides of mountains. However, it does have to be refined down into tiles and slabs for ready architectural use. While these materials do have a lot in common, there are some subtle characteristics that set them apart when used in various environments.
Bathroom floors degrade faster than any other below foot surface covering in the home. That is because they have to contend with all of the worst hazards of water, humidity, heat, stains, and corrosive soaps and substances. One simple, cost-effective option that can be easily replaced periodically is to make use of self-adhesive tiles.
