Is Tile Right For Me?

Tile is a very popular flooring choice among homeowners here in Albuquerque. However, we know that tile isn’t right for every home. Here are some things to keep in mind if you’re considering installing new tile floors.

Climate

Climate may not be the first thing you consider when looking for new floors, but it should factor into your decision. Certain floors function better in certain environments than others. Tile is an ideal flooring choice for homes in hot or humid environments. Because tile doesn’t absorb heat the way other flooring materials do, it remains cool underfoot. It also withstands humidity well, unlike carpet or hardwood, which can become damaged from prolonged exposure to moisture.

Style

Tile is extremely versatile, so you won’t have any trouble finding a style or color that fits your home’s décor. If you’re looking for a flooring choice that will let you be as bold or subtle as you want, tile is a great option.

Location in the home

You should also consider where in the home you are planning to install your new tile floors. Because of its durability and resistance to moisture, tile is ideal for kitchens, entryways and bathrooms. However, there are certain rooms that tile isn’t as well suited for. For example, many people prefer carpet in the bedrooms, which provides a more comfortable feel. In addition, we wouldn’t recommend placing tile in a living room/TV room or child’s playroom where people are likely to be sitting on the ground.

Budget

Tile floors are a great choice for homeowners with both large and modest budgets. Tile comes in a variety of materials, from natural stone to ceramic, and there are lots of options within any price range. If you have marble tile taste on a ceramic tile budget, don’t worry! Our team at Floor Coverings International and Poulin Design Center can help you find a tile floor that you love!
