Where does tile make sense in your Indiana home?
Published: June 7, 2012
When you consider new flooring, the choices can seem overwhelming. Carpet? Hardwood? Tile? What’s a homeowner to do? Pick the floor that’s the best fit for your room and lifestyle. Most homes in the Indianapolis area end up with a mix of floor coverings. After all, each room of your home has different uses and the carpet that makes your bedroom so inviting, makes your kitchen a nightmare to clean up. Today, let’s talk a bit about tile.
- Kitchens & bathrooms: Tile is most often used in kitchens and bathrooms where spills and water are common. A tile floor makes clean up a snap.
- Entryway: Tile comes in so many colors, patterns and textures that many homeowners are using it to make a statement right at the front door.
- High traffic areas: One of the biggest benefits to tile is that it won’t show wear patterns like carpet does. Consider tile for hallways or to create walkways in other areas of your home.
- Don’t forget to look up: Tile also makes sense on bathroom walls, showers and backsplashes – all places where easy-to-clean and long-lasting tile can make a nice statement.
