Things to consider when selecting tile

Factors to consider when choosing tile include the cost and budget and the amount of foot traffic in the space where it will be installed. Price is usually the first thing homeowners take into consideration when purchasing porcelain and ceramic tile.

The amount of traffic is also an important consideration. Ceramic tile, placed in a room with heavy traffic, may show signs of wear as time passes. The pattern of porcelain tile is all through the tile, and does not show wear and tear.

Porcelain tile is available in hues of pink, beige, and gray. It can have the veining effect of marble and is a fabulous alternative to pricey natural marble. Ceramic also comes in a range of colors. It is easy to maintain and does not fade in sunlight.
