Wondering where to install a tile flooring?
Because of their moisture resistance, ceramic tiles are perfect in areas of high moisture, such as bathrooms and kitchens and laundry rooms. Additionally, because dirt, rain, snow, and mud can be tracked in with shoes and boots, tiling around entrances and in mudrooms helps keep clean up easier. Because ceramic is resistant to fire, the tradition of tiling around fireplaces continues to make sense.
Having said that, with the styles, shapes and color choices of ceramic flooring available today, practically ANY room in the home can be tiled! Because of radiant heating options that have become popular, tiles no longer have to be synonymous with cold. You may not associate this type of flooring with bedrooms, living and dining rooms, but that probably relates more to our North American climate and design choices. Travel South and get a little more tropical. The higher the moisture levels the more ceramic tiling you will see in use - in practically every room of the home, including the bedroom!
