4 Ways to Incorporate Ceramic Tile in Your Home
When it comes to flooring options, ceramic tile is one of the more popular choices. Homeowners love ceramic tile for its beauty, durability, comfort and cleanliness. Ceramic tile is available in a wide selection of colors, patterns and tiles. It is this variety that makes ceramic tile a good choice for other areas of the home besides the kitchen floor. Here are four ways to incorporate ceramic tile for your home.
On the Shower Floor
The shower floor is a place that is prone to germs and bacteria. It’s essential to keep the shower floor disinfected, and to choose a shower floor material that will be very easy to keep clean.
Ceramic tile is ideal for the shower floor. When it’s sealed properly it will be resistant to mold and germ growth. It’s a cinch to clean, and will last at least as long as the house itself.
On Shower Walls
Shower walls no longer have to be boring, drab affairs. When you incorporate ceramic tile on shower walls, you have a broad range of designs to use. You can even come up with your own inventive design yourself and have it put together just the way you would like it.
Whichever design you choose, you can be assured that the ceramic tile on your shower walls will be durable, functional and attractive.
On Kitchen Countertops
Stone and granite kitchen countertops can be prohibitively expensive. In addition, they are becoming so common that they are no longer unique. On the other hand, ceramic tile countertops are limited only by the homeowner’s imagination.
Ceramic tile kitchen countertops are resistant to stains, scratches when correctly installed and sealed. Your ceramic tile installer can help you choose an appropriate size and pattern for your kitchen countertop ceramic tiles that will enhance the look and feel of your kitchen.
Around a Mirror
One of the creative ways you can incorporate ceramic tile in your home is to use it to create a border around a favorite mirror. With just a few simple steps, you can transform an ordinary mirror into a work of art.
The best size tiles to use for a mirror border are small 4 x 4s or even 2 x 2s, but the size you use will depend on your personal preference and the size of the mirror.
