Rubber comes with a variety of inherent advantages that have made it an extremely popular flooring option for commercial, high-traffic environments. And now that it's available in a wide selection of colors, patterns, and textures, this material is also finding its way into residential interior and exterior applications. However, these advantages are balanced by a series of drawbacks, which are important to understand before making a final decision about your flooring.
Brick flooring is very similar to stone and concrete in that it is a hard surface material, that is also permeable and needs to be sealed. However, once sealed it becomes a low-maintenance kitchen flooring option, that only has to be swept free of debris every few days. The surface sealant will have to be reapplied periodically, but as long as that is done on a regular basis, a well-installed brick floor can potentially last a lifetime.
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.
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.
