Tile is an all-purpose material that very well could be all over your home. After all, you can find tile in every room of the house in some spaces from the family room to the bathroom to the kitchen. That’s because tile is so versatile and relatively easy to maintain, at least if you pick the right kind.
However, if you’re remodeling your home and you’re getting ready to replace your existing tile or install new tile, you may not be quite sure what to pick. Use our guide to help you find the right tile and tile contractors for the job.
Consider Foot Traffic
When you’re getting ready to install tile in a space the first thing you need to consider is how much foot traffic the area gets. If you’re putting tile in a bathroom that gets used frequently or in a walkway, you know that that’s going to mean a lot of feet stepping on your tile. For spaces like that you need something that is durable and easy to clean so it won’t look bad all the time.
Save the delicate or hand-painted tile for spaces like the master bedroom that don’t get as much heavy traffic.
Make a Budget
Tile can last a very long time, and that makes it an affordable flooring solution for most homeowners. However, you still need to have a budget before you go into a project.
Make sure you get a quote from your tile contractor before any work begins.
