A home renovation is a substantial change and can become quite costly. However, it can transform a drab space into a fantastic space and add considerable value to your home. If you have decided to use tile flooring for your home, then you have decided on durability. There are several different options regarding tile flooring for your home including ceramic and porcelain, natural stone, glass, mosaic, and even metal design choices.
Choosing a Size
The first consideration to make when choosing your new tile flooring is the size you will want for the space. Tile ranges from smaller to larger pieces. For a shower, for example, you may want smaller tiles, but for a floor, you may choose larger tiles, so you will not have to use as many of them. You want to ensure that whatever size you choose, you are able to capture a very proportional look for the space and you achieve the effect you want with the tile you have chosen.
Choosing a Color
There are several factors to consider when choosing a color for your tile flooring. A lighter colored tile will help make your space appear larger than it is while a darker color can add warmth to the space. Shade variation tile can help blend and mask small imperfections, while a more neutral color will give you more leniency when it comes to choosing accessories and other décor options for the space.
A brighter and more vibrant color choice can add cheer and character to the space and can match your own individual style and lifestyle.
Choosing a Style
Finally, you will want to choose a style that will fit into the space. You can choose from a classic or a more timeless look with a tumbled marble or a stone that will match your décor and allow you to add more pops of color later on in the design process. Ceramic, porcelain, and natural stone choices can also help you create a more unique and individualized style.
Maintaining your Tile Flooring
Tile flooring is also a great option because of the minimal amount of maintenance that is needed for its upkeep. Simply clean the tile with a damp sponge or cloth with a mild cleaner. Avoid using harsh detergents that can leave a film on the tile and never use anything acidic such as bleach or vinegar.
Choosing tile for your flooring adds a beautiful and appealing aesthetic to your home with the ability to maintain your own individualized style and character.
