3 Reasons Why Tiles Are the Best Flooring Option

There are many different flooring options such as stylish wood to soft carpeting. Wooden flooring is elegant and trendy but scratches and scuffs easily. It happens easily when walked on in sharp heels or boots. Carpets can stain easily and dust, allergens often get stuck in the carpet.

Then there are tiles, they can be used for countertops, backsplashes, walls, and flooring. Tiles are available in a wide range of materials, designs, dimensions, and colors. Tiles can offer many advantages when you are building a new home or renovating your existing home. Tiles offer some of these advantages:


If you ever drop soda, wine, or any other liquid on your carpet, it is very difficult to clean. If a visitor is coming to your house in heels and stepped on your softwood floor, you will need to buy a replacement.

Tiles like porcelain, stone, or ceramic are durable and can handle damages from heavy boots to sharp heels. They are also waterproof when we put on tile grout so liquids would not be an issue anymore. Tiles are very durable no matter where you put it. Whether they are placed in the bathroom as a backsplash or flooring or kitchen as a countertop material, they will give you a stylish and versatile look.


Tiles are very versatile and it can give you different color and decorations from living room to bedroom, using different types of tiles. By using natural stone, porcelain, or ceramic tiles, it is very easy to create a modern and contemporary space.

Another huge benefit of tiles is that they’re not just for the floor. From the bathroom to the kitchen, wall tiles and mosaic tiles are the perfect choice for a cool and stylish backsplash or feature wall.
Carpet and wooden flooring can be a great option for flooring but they are far from versatile.


Low Maintenance

Tiles are wide known their hardiness and they require very low maintenance compared to carpets and wood flooring. Most tile floors require a quick clean every month to wipe out any dust and dirt. On the other hand, as time goes on, carpets start to collect dust, allergens, dirt, and hair from pets, making steam cleaning necessary.
