Ceramics are not a modern invention. In fact, ceramics have been a popular art niche for many decades, and ceramics have been used in medicine (particularly dentistry) for many years as well. In the home, ceramic tiles are proving to be a popular choice for a number of reasons, one of them being their cost effectiveness.
When laid correctly, ceramic tiles are easy to clean, easy to maintain, and with the wide range of finishes available, look great. Ceramic tiles are not affected by temperature variations, which is great news for those with environmental concerns – it also makes them especially appealing in wet areas such as bathrooms.
You can throw away your harsh chemicals when it comes to cleaning ceramic tiles. The quickest, easiest and most cost effective way to clean ceramic tiles is steam. A decent steam cleaner will remove dirt, oil, any residues left behind by soaps and sprays (including hairs sprays) whilst also sanitizing – and bacteria cannot build up a resistance to steam like they are doing to chemicals.
Ceramic tiles are tough and durable. In high traffic areas, many floor finishes will, over time, show signs of traffic. Ceramic tiles won’t show those signs of traffic; at least, not for many years if not decades. Ceramic tiles don’t warp or crack and not are affected by water or chemicals (if you still prefer to use them). This has made ceramic tiles a popular choice in public environments such as swimming pools, and in the home a great bathroom tile flooring option.
When it comes to cost, the long lasting nature of ceramic tiles make them a very cost effective choice. Add the huge range of colors and finishes, and you’ll find a ceramic tile to suit any bathroom.
