Ceramic tile is the go-to choice when you need durable, stain-resistant, easy to clean flooring. The inherent strength of the materials means that they won’t break, crack, or chip even when handling the largest of pets. At the same time, the glazed glass layer that is manufactured over the surface makes the otherwise vulnerable fired clay material impervious to water penetration and accident stains.
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.
Ceramic is one of the easiest floors to maintain over the course of its life. Glazed tiles are impervious to water and stains, and even unglazed tiles can be sealed and protected. Grout lines should be sealed annually. Other than this, the floor will require only regular sweeping and damp mopping to remove dirt and loose debris.
Ceramic tiles are used in both wall tile and floor tile applications; they are softer and easier to cut than porcelain. Non-porcelain ceramic tiles are usually suitable for very light to moderate traffic and generally have a relatively high water absorption rating, around 4%, making them less frost resistant and they are more prone to wear and chipping than porcelain tiles.
