WHAT FLOORING TYPE TO CHOOSE
When you imagine the floors of any home, you often think about the most appropriate material to use in a particular home. An extensive home surrounded by nature will most likely have hardwood flooring to match the ambient surroundings of the house. After all, one common thing that people look into when installing the floors in their homes is if it looks good. On the other hand, other homeowners think about the durability and life span of the floors. It is convenient to think about the previous quality combined with lower prices. More often than not, homeowners struggle to find the perfect flooring.
Recently, tiles have become a trendy floor type. Tiles were more popularly used in bathrooms and kitchens where the floor was prone to getting wet. Tiles are highly resistant to water, especially the good kind. It does not stain, and it is easy to clean and maintain. Tiles are also excellent insulators depending on what material they were made from. Because of this, many homeowners opt to use tiles for the whole house instead of just the bathroom and kitchen. Tile Flooring Columbus, OH offers many different kinds of tiles. The two most popular tile types that are used in homes: ceramic tile and porcelain tile.
PORCELAIN TILE VS CERAMIC TILE
Often, porcelain tiles are a kind of ceramic tile. As was previously mentioned, tiles can be differentiated by the material they were made from and also by how they were made. Porcelain tiles are made from denser clay and in higher temperatures than most ceramic tiles. There is not much difference between the two. However, among homeowners, porcelain and ceramic tiles are both very popular to use for the majority of the floor area of the house. Both tiles look elegant and clean. They are also easy to maintain and do not need constant attention since it only needs minimal wiping, which lasts a long time.
However, porcelain tiles are often chosen between porcelain and ceramic tiles since they are more resistant to water. Ceramic tiles tend to absorb water and get stained. Tile Flooring Columbus has suitable quality ceramic tile that is highly resistant to water. We also offer porcelain tiles that are sturdy and have various designs. As for other ceramic tiles, it is best to choose based on function instead of appearance. For example, the kitchen and the bathroom are always prone to getting wet. In this case, an ordinary ceramic tile would get more damages since it cannot be exposed to water for a long time. Instead, a particular type of ceramic tile (mosaic tile) can be installed.
