Choosing Ceramic Tile

Ceramic tiles have many wonderful qualities, they are not only beautiful and come in a tremendous variety of shapes and sizes to reflect your personal style, but also ceramic tiles are durable, easy to clean, and long lasting. Given the vast array of ceramic tile choices at hand for a home improvement project, here are some ideas that will help you to determine how to choose the right ceramic tile for your flooring home improvement project.

With flooring, consider the possibilities ceramic tile offers in terms of flooring for an entryway, kitchen or dining area, laundry room, and bathrooms. Almost every room inside your home is an opportunity to use ceramic tiles as flooring. For your first ceramic tiling home improvement project, consider factors such as the size of the room, the color of the walls and how much you would like the floor color to either compliment or contrast, how much natural light comes into the room, or if you would like to a “showcase” a specific design or pattern. Handyman Connection of Westchester County understands that there is a lot of work that goes into selecting a tile that works best for your home. Therefore, we can be there for all of your tiling needs.

Ceramic tiles are waterproof and an excellent choice for rooms that have a high exposure to moisture such as the bathrooms, the kitchen area or laundry rooms. If the ceramic tile floor is going to be wet at times, like in a bathroom, choosing a tile with a bit more texture will ensure your footing is maintained. Speaking of water, imagine this; a beautiful border of tiles positioned in a mosaic fashion to form waves, which surround tiles that are sandy colored with some color variation to denote grains of sand. Every day could be “a day at the beach” for you and your family. In terms of additional ideas for borders, consider geometric patterns, a simple checkerboard pattern the possibilities are virtually unlimited and we at Handyman Connection of Westchester County can help with our experience and expertise. The possibilities for ceramic tile home improvement projects are endless and completely up to you in terms of the theme of your home.
