Advantages of Tile Flooring
- Durable: Both ceramic and porcelain tiles are extremely durable. Porcelain tile is heated at a higher temperature and is usually more durable than ceramic options.
- Low-Maintenance: Tiles can be easily cleaned with a damp towel or sponge. They are resistant to water and humidity, making it ideal for rooms with water exposure such as kitchens and bathrooms.
- Endless Style Options: With endless combinations of sizes, colors, and different glaze options, you can rest assured that you will find something that suits your personal aesthetic.
Disadvantages of Tile Flooring
- Hard Underfoot: While ceramic and porcelain can feel cool to the touch, perfect for warmer months in Florida, it can be hard and uncomfortable underfoot especially if you are standing on it for long periods.
