A perpetual floor: Ceramic tile flooring

Scientists have been seeking out a source of perpetual energy for many years. While we may not be able to give you exactly this, we have found a perpetual flooring. If you doubt that, go look to the ancient pyramids and other archaeological digs. Amongst other things, you find ceramic and porcelain. We can offer you that same kind of permanence for your home. Many real estate agents will tell you that an investment in tile flooring is an investment that will improve your home’s value

An ancient idea but modern manufacturing

Porcelain and ceramic tile are essentially made from the same process today as they were many years ago. Modern technology, though, allows for much more uniform and precise results. Plus, modern glazing techniques protect the flooring from becoming scratched or beaten up from normal wear and tear. Both materials are formed from clay that has been pulverized and kiln-dried at very high temperatures. Porcelain is made from more finely pulverized clay, providing for a slight difference in appearance but very little difference in application.

To begin with, tile flooring handles the presence of water extremely well and thus is an excellent option in kitchens, bathrooms, and entryways where spills or splashes of water are commonplace. They also make an excellent floor in the main living area. They remain cool underfoot during the hot summers and an area rug is a perfect addition if you are looking to accentuate the floor.

Tile flooring is also such that it can be installed with a great deal of design if you are interested in creating a truly memorable look. Most have matching trim pieces and borders available so that a design can be laid into the room, hall, or other living space. They can also be laid at 45-degree angles to the walls of the room or in various patterns, allowing for a great deal of flexibility in design.

Yet, let us not stop there. Ceramic tile and its porcelain cousins are well suited to be used to make countertops and backsplashes. They can be mounted on walls and used for baseboards. Anywhere you wish to protect your home from the effects of moisture, here is an excellent option.
