Why use tile?

We were recently interviewed by NC Homes magazine, and we thought we’d share our responses with you as a series of blog entries.

Why select tile?

Tile is an extremely practical material and a designer favorite because of its many possibilities. We think tile is great because it’s:

Durable – Tile is among the longest lasting flooring materials. When you consider the length of time that tile will last versus the initial cost of installation, tile is the least expensive flooring material available.

Easy to maintain – Most tiles can be cleaned with warm water and a damp mop. No harsh chemicals or complicated cleaning regimen are needed to keep tile looking beautiful. A recent industry study indicated that tile is the least expensive, long-term option when considering maintenance and the long life of tile.

Beautiful & versatile – The options in tile are incredibly varied, and there is something to suit every person’s design style. Popular looks include rectangular or plank tiles, larger tiles (bigger than 15”), wood-look tiles, and textured tiles. The introduction of high-resolution printing on tile makes it possible to replicate the appearance of stone, fabric, wood, and cement.

Inert – Tile is made from naturally occurring materials, and emits no toxic odors or Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs). Most of the materials used to set tile today also incorporate recycled materials and produce no VOCs.

Healthy – When tile is installed properly, it provides a safe, clean, and beautiful space for many years. Because tile is inert, it does not contribute to indoor air pollution, and you won’t have to use harmful cleaning chemicals to keep it looking clean and beautiful.
