Tile flooring is one of the most versatile flooring options a homeowner can choose. A well-laid tile floor is durable, distinctive and with such a large variety of materials and color choices, tile can simply be one of the most beautiful choices you can make for your flooring needs.
Flooring Myrtle Beach has some of the choices in tile flooring, and each has its very unique characteristics:
Natural stone (granite, limestone, slate, for example) is one of the most unique tiles available because no two pieces are exactly alike – after all, they’re naturally formed. The result is pure elegance. In addition to the look, because of the high density of granite stone, there is a natural resistance to bacteria and dampness/moisture, which makes it a wonderful choice for bathrooms and kitchens and even outdoor areas such as patios and decks. Limestone is softer and is not recommended for areas that will get high traffic. Slate, on the other hand, is naturally slip-resistant, very hard, and can take a beating and still keep its good looks.
Ceramic tile – you can get it glazed or unglazed. The sizes and colors and even surface finishes are many, and ceramic tile is a popular choice for heavy-traffic areas in terms of durability, and easy maintenance.
Marble – not quite as touch as granite, but it’s still recommended for lower trafficked areas and for bathrooms.
Believe it or not, you can even find metal and glass tiling. These materials offer some creativity that is off the charts, but you have to be careful when making this choice. Be sure to consult an experienced tile professional.
To sum it up, tile flooring is versatile, beautiful and a wonderful choice for a long-lasting surface in your home. Tile is heavy, so be SURE you have your subflooring inspected by a tile and flooring professional. You can afford to guess on this point.
