When it comes to flooring solutions, tile is often forgotten about. We are always so surprised to hear how few people want to add tile to their homes, especially when there are countless benefits to having this flooring option. In today’s blog, the team at Floor Expo is going to cover a few of the reasons that tile makes such a great flooring option for your home. Let’s dive right in!

It’s Durable

When you’re investing in something that is going to be used as frequently as your floor, you want to make sure that it is up to the challenge of your everyday life. While every flooring solution is going to provide some sort of durability, not all flooring solutions will provide the same level of durability. If that is something that you’re concerned with, then tile is certainly one of the more durable options that you’re able to choose.

Not only are any tiles installed in your house going to be ceramic or porcelain, but they’re going to be water resistant. Ceramic and porcelain tiles have been shown to last upwards of 50 years when they’re made well. In our opinion, that’s a pretty impressive durability level.


While tile was once something that you’d only put in your kitchen and bathroom, it has gained quite the versatility. Now, you see tile being added to more and more parts of the home. This likely has something to do with the fact that there are now many designs and styling options that you can choose from when adding tiles to your home. For example, one of the most popular tiles sold is actually created to look like wood. So, while your floors may look like the hardwood floors that so many people want, they are actually tiles. This solution allows you to get the best of both worlds — the beauty of hardwood floors, with the durability and water resistance of tile.

The added versatility that tile offers makes it easy for you to find a tile design that suits just about every room in your home. This flooring option also makes it incredibly easy for you to create a well-rounded look in any room of your home. This is yet another reason that we absolutely love tile as a flooring solution.

Low-Maintenance Option

If you’re wanting a flooring option that requires little to no maintenance, you can’t go wrong with tile! Given that it is low-maintenance and a water resistant flooring option, it is absolutely fantastic for kids who are known for spilling, dogs that will inevitably track in mud, and the endless unexpected messes that life brings. With a quick sweep and a mop, your floors are as good as new! With that being said, this is one of the features that people with busy lives, children, and pets, love about this flooring solution.

Gone are the days of worrying about claw marks from Fido in your hardwood floor, or cranberry juice stains in the carpet from little Suzie. Keep your home looking great with beautiful tile.
