From the outdoor patio to the basement, floor tile can add untold value to your Montreal home.
There are several factors, however, that affect the value of your floor tile and the value of your home. Here are some things to consider:
- Age of the tile – Obviously, if your floor tile is 50 years old, then it could be worn. It’s life span may have been reached. Newer tile is valued higher.
- Tile material – Slate and marble will add more value to your home that ceramic or porcelain.
- Decor consistency – Is your tile design consistent with the other interior elements of your home? If you tile your floor with a modern-looking tile and the rest of your home is stuck in the 19th century, that may look awkward and diminish the value of your home in some buyer’s eyes.
- How much tile is in your home – Are you tiling just the patio or will you also tile the entire house? If you tile just the foyer and nothing else, that will have an effect no your home’s value. If you tile the entire house, that will have an effect as well.
In general, tiling bathrooms and kitchens can affect home values. Even if all you tile is the shower and vanity, it could have an effect.

Get the input of a home inspector or other real estate professional before you make a decision, but do keep them tiling principles in mind.
