Most self-adhesive tiles are designed to last for just a few years of use in a bathroom before they need to be replaced. This is offset by the fact that they are easy to install, which cuts down on the cost of hiring a professional, and also easy to remove. Most products will also be relatively inexpensive, although the price can vary greatly depending on the quality of the material.
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.
Vinyl is a relatively new surface covering, which has only been developed into flooring in the past few decades. It is a man-made material, similar to plastic, with many of the same resilient and resistant properties. This makes it proof against almost all staining agents and makes the surface relatively easy to wipe clean of spills and splashes. Vinyl is also a tough flooring material that doesn’t easily rip, tear, or scratch.
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.
