Choosing flooring for your home can seem like a daunting process. You need to decide between practicality, style, function and personal preference. Here we outline why tiles are a great option and NEED to be considered.
Tiles are a popular choice for any home floor covering, and for good reason.
Durability and maintenance
Tiles are incredibly durable and withstand most types of wear and tear, even in heavy traffic areas. They are an excellent choice as they look great when they are first laid and will continue to for some time with little maintenance.
Comfort in the winter and in summer
Tiles provide both coolness in the summer and warmth in the winter. Depending on your environment and your home temperature needs, if your home tends to hold its heat then tiles are a great choice as they will remain cool underfoot. On the other hand, if warmth is what you’re after then tiles are incredible conductors of heat and when used with underfloor heating they can provide a lovely ambient warmth perfect for the cooler months.
