The Pros of Ceramic Floor Tiles in the Home. One of the biggest advantages of using ceramic tiles in flooring is that the range and scope of design, pattern, colour, style and overall aesthetic is virtually unlimited. Unique and inspired designs can be easily created allowing for individual tastes to be easily catered for. The tiles also last a considerable amount of time and should not need replacement in a lifetime. Ceramic tiles are also easy to clean and are therefore low maintenance compared to other materials. The durability of the ceramic tile is also a plus, as it can take a high degree of traffic without becoming worn.
Flooring presents other challenges, and opportunities. Clearly floor tiles must be durable so high fire stoneware is the best choice. Any kind of relief is not advised as uneven surfaces can be difficult to walk on, especially for the aged. An additional consideration with flooring tiles is slickness. A glossy glaze on a floor is not recommended. A heavily textured glaze or a matte glaze is best. Outdoor use in cold climates demands high fired tiles and dependable glazes, especially if on horizontal surfaces. Low fire and even porous tiles can be used outdoors in cold climates if on or in a vertical surface. But you are still better off with a frost proof tile in cold climates.
