Each room in your home comes with its own challenges. A flooring material that’s perfect for one space may not work in another.
Laundry Room and Bathroom
Tile is a traditional choice in these rooms because it holds up well in wet places. Porcelain also allows for barrier-free, design-forward, showers, where the bathroom floor extends straight into the shower without any lip. Choose a more textured product rather than one with a highly polished surface to avoid slippery floors. An electric heating element under the tiles can also be installed and connected to a timer control.
Porcelain tile outperforms every other flooring material for resistance to scratching and denting. It’s a natural fit for high-traffic areas of the home. Plus, it comes in a range of styles to fit any décor. Tile is also low-maintenance. It never needs more than a vacuuming and mopping and will last a lifetime.
Sunroom or Enclosed Porch
Tile will stand up to most of the abuse it gets in these rooms. Porcelain tiles can be designed to look like handmade ceramic tiles in addition to faux wood and stone. Choose a tile that’s rated for outdoor use in your climate if your porch isn’t fully heated and protected from the elements.
