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.
Concrete is generally an inexpensive flooring choice if you are in a first story locations, however, it will need to be treated to make it suitable for a space that is frequently trafficked by animals. This requires the application of an appropriate concrete sealer, on a semi-regular basis, to clog the tiny hidden pores in the face of the floor. This protects the material from liquid penetration and stains, creating a solid clear surface that you can then scour clean as necessary.
Subway tile has become hot in the last few years with the return of industrial style design. However, that doesn’t mean you have to stick to plain white. A unique look for subway tile that’s gaining popularity is bright colors. Greens, blues and purples are making an appearance in rooms small and large. For a sophisticated look, try marble subway tile backsplash accented by bright colors throughout the room.
Tile is a great choice for homeowners who are looking to be eco-friendly. Though certain types of tile come from renewable resources, you should always be aware of where you’re sourcing the product from. Naturally, recycled glass is a common option for homeowners going green. Stone tile, such as slate, is also an eco-friendly choice.
