Everyone knows that Indianapolis is famous for the changing of seasons. If your flooring has taken a beating from the water, dirt and snow ran across it every year, it may be showing the ware. Redoing your kitchen’s floor is an inexpensive kitchen remodeling project where your family will reap the benefits. One of the most popular flooring choices this season is ceramic tile. Because ceramic tile is an economical choice, that still presents a stunning and elegant look, it is growing in popularity. While all flooring has positives and negatives, people are deciding that a ceramic floor’s good outweighs the bad.

Positives to Ceramic Tile:

  • Water-proof
  • Stain-proof
  • Durable
  • Long-lasting
  • Wear-resistant
  • Wide variety of design possibilities
  • Easy to maintain

Negative to Ceramic Tile:

  • Chips and scratches remove ceramic glaze
  • Can be difficult to repair
One of the reasons so many people love tile is because it is so easy to clean. Simply sweep, and occasionally wash it with hot water or hot water and a mild detergent. Another reason it is popping up in households across the country is because of the plethora of design options that are available. Tiles come in a wide range of shapes, sizes and colors. Most of the tiles are square, but you can also find ceramic tile in hexagons, rectangles and octagons. This versatility lets you create interesting shapes and patterns. Combine this with the multitude of colors available, and you have the basis to create a one-of-a kind floor. Certain tiles can also be painted for further creativity. You can also decide between the different size of tiles. For flooring, 12 x 12 inch tiles are the most popular for your home improvement project, but 18 x18 inch and 24 x 24 inch tiles are also being used in the kitchen. Much smaller sizes are available, too, with the tiniest (1 x 1) often being mixed within the larger tiles to create beautiful mosaic patterns. Keep in mind is that unless you plan on having the tile sealed, make sure you purchase glazed tile.
