Where to place ceramic & porcelain tile?

The first room that comes to mind when ceramic & porcelain tile are mentioned is the bathroom. There’s a good reason for that though, as it’s always been used there with great success. In fact, with the proper safety coating to prevent slips and falls, it can even be used directly inside the shower itself. It has been a major design feature in this room, for many years.

Just as these floor coverings are at home in the bathroom, they also make a great addition to kitchens and foyers. Since they have excellent water resistance, you never have to worry about water damage, and tile floors do not allow the growth of mold, mildew, or bacteria, making it much more healthy for your family. This is even a major reason this flooring is used in settings such as schools, hospitals, and restaurants with great efficiency.

In other rooms where it doesn’t seem as feasible, ceramic & porcelain are still being used with great success. For a natural, minimal look, you can opt for porcelain in living areas, even selecting each and every tile for the exact look you want. Clear glazes help to accentuate the all-natural patterns within the tile, offering one of the most gorgeous looks in flooring.

For those with a desire for the more artistic side of life, ceramic porcelain and it’s brightly colored glazes, can create a plethora of amazing results. From solid color schemes to intricate mosaics, making use of differently shapes and sized tiles, can be just the thing to take your space to the next level.
