Tile Floor Installation
Renovating your new floors to ceramic or porcelain tile can bring noticeable changes to your home. Our customers often ask us “which is a better tile option for certain rooms in my house?” In Oklahoma, most of our customers either go with porcelain or ceramic. Both types have distinct advantages and disadvantages. For high-traffic areas (foyers, living rooms, etc.), porcelain is more durable and will hold up better over time when compared to ceramic. For our budget-minded customer, ceramic tile often can be purchased for less than porcelain. For areas of the house such as bathrooms and kitchens where the flooring may be exposed to a lot of water, porcelain offers a surface that is more porous, which allows for the tile to be water resistant.
Those represent only a few of the pros and cons to choosing either porcelain or ceramic. We suggest calling Tulsa Home Renovators to discuss which tile to use for your unique installation. In addition, we also encourage customers to visit one of our local suppliers to touch and see the tile so they have a better understanding of what they are purchasing. In addition to porcelain and ceramic, there are other tile options that can be installed to update your home such as travertine, slate and marble. Although they are not used as often as ceramic and porcelain, these three flooring options can create a more luxurious feel.
