Why You Should Use Porcelain Tiles in Your Bathroom

If you’re about to remodel your bathroom, one of the most important factors to think about is the type of flooring material you should use. Sure, a shaggy carpet would feel amazing on your feet, and solid wood would look amazing with the décor you have in mind, but they’re not very practical to have in the bathroom.

The flooring material you choose needs to withstand all the steamy showers, wet towels, & bathtub splashing that occur in the bathroom on a daily basis. Keep in mind the accidents that can also occur such as a broken sink pipe, or even worse, a clogged overflowing toilet! You wouldn’t want that mess all over nice carpet or wood!

For a great looking floor that is practical, porcelain tiles are the way to go. Porcelain also comes in many styles and colors that will be sure to complement the look of your bathroom. If you have been on the fence about what flooring you should use, here are three reasons why you should choose porcelain tile over other materials:

Toughness – In houses or places with heavy bathroom use, porcelain tile will be able to withstand all the foot traffic that will come in and out over time. It will also resist all the water and moisture that is typical of a bathroom environment.

Maintenance – Porcelain tile is very easy to clean and maintain. Simply use a mild cleaner with a mop or towel to wipe up any spills. Be careful not to use steel wood pads because they will scratch the tile surface!

Versatility – In addition to being resistant to stains, water, bacteria, and odor, porcelain tiles come in a variety of shapes, colors and sizes so that you can outfit any size bathroom with practicality & style!
