The Pros and Cons of Ceramic Tile Flooring

May 7, 2010

We offer so many different flooring options at Aladdin Carpet and Floors that if you are having difficulty deciding between them we are not surprised. Every flooring option has its own unique set of pros and cons and weighing them all up can make your decision a little bit easier.

Ceramic tiles have been used to create breathtakingly beautiful floors for centuries and the very fact that so many historical buildings still have their ceramic floors intact is a testament to the durability that ceramic flooring offers. But it may not be for everyone, or perhaps suitable for every room in the home. Here are the most common pros and cons associated with choosing ceramic tiling as a flooring option:

The Pros of Ceramic Tile Floors:

  • Ceramic, as previously mentioned, is tremendously durable, even when used outside, on a patio or around a pool.
  • Ceramic tile flooring is extremely easy to care for. A quick sweep every day busts the dust bunnies and a quick mop every week keeps it all clean.
  • Ceramic tile comes in an almost endless variety of patterns and colors, offering you almost unlimited design possibilities
  • Ceramic flooring can increase the value of your home.

The Cons of Ceramic Tile Floors:

  • Ceramic tile is by its very nature very hard and is not the most kid friendly flooring option in the world.
  • Ceramic tile floors tend to be cooler to the touch than other flooring options, which may be a little uncomfortable in cooler climates.
  • Ceramic tile flooring is not really a DIY project, professional installation is a must if you want a ceramic floor that lasts and looks good.
