Kitchen And Bathroom Tile Realities

bathroom vanity tileYesterday, we discussed the possibilities available to home owners when they consider tiling their kitchen area. Today, we’re going to go into a slightly different direction.

When you think about what happens in the kitchen and bathroom areas – vis-à-vis hot steamy showers, dish washing, cooking over a hot stove, running hot and cold water splashing around, grease flying from off the skillets, etc. – then you can begin to understand what your tile is up against on a day-to-day basis. It’s not easy being wall and floor tile.

Your kitchen and bathroom tile must be able to withstand a lot of moisture. It must also be easy to clean up spills such as hot and cold liquids (coffee, tea, or soda), grease, toothpaste, bleaches, and other chemical-based cleaners.

This is not to scare you. It’s a warning. Be sure to consider the type of tile you lay on your kitchen and bathroom floors as well as backsplashes, countertops, and vanities, because that tile will have to withstand a lot of abuse. Floors in bathrooms and kitchens get wet. You don’t want a material that will leave water stains or chemical stains. You don’t want a tile material that is easily scratched or isn’t abrasion-resistant.
