Do you have a lot of old flooring that you're looking to replace? If so, you may want to replace some of it with tile flooring. Tile not only looks stylish but provides function in the following places in your home.
The Laundry Room
Many homeowners use tile flooring to give them protection from water damage. One room where this is a real possibility is the laundry room. There is always a risk of water leaking from the washing machine or even wet clothing that finds its way on the floor. Consider placing tile flooring in this room so that you don't have to think about water damaging hardwood or carpeting.
The Front Entrance
As much as you want to protect your front entrance by placing a rug near the door, that rug is not going to do much in terms of providing protection to the floor underneath. People come in and out of your home with dirty boots and shoes from walking outside, and the front entrance of a house can see a lot of wear and tear because of it. Upgrading the space with tile flooring can provide a lot of benefits in terms of keeping the space clean.
Tile flooring is easy to clean up with using a mop and soapy water. The tile will not easily become stained or damaged by people walking across the area either. The tile can also make the area look less cluttered without rugs to get in the way of people taking off their shoes.
A bathroom is a place where tile flooring makes the most sense since there is a lot of water that gets on the floor from people getting in and out of the shower. It makes the space easy to clean up and keep free of mold, which can easily be a problem if you have bathroom carpeting or hardwood. Choosing tiles that have a nonporous surface will really make it easy to clean the space.
If you are concerned about the tile flooring feeling cold when you step out from the shower, know that you can always install radiant in-floor heating before the new tile is placed. This can heat up the tiles using electrical cables that radiate heat from underneath the floor.
