There are several good reasons why ceramic tile is the best option for kitchen floors. For one, its appearance and versatility make it reliable without feeling boring. Rick Berres says, “Of all the kitchen renovations we have done, the ones with ceramic tile stand head and shoulders above the rest. It is extremely durable so it lasts forever, it’s easy to clean, and the design options are literally endless. Ceramic Tile floors look unique and high-end, and you can choose patterns to fit the… style of your home.” Whether you’re aiming for classic farmhouse, modern glam, or a retro style kitchen, you can enhance the look with tiles which come in hundreds of shapes and styles, from wood-look to hand-painted mosaics. Even simple, solid colored tiles can be jazzed up with an interesting layout.
Perhaps the greatest advantage of ceramic tile is how easy it is to clean. From spilled liquids to pet messes and broken dishes, this tile can withstand just about anything your family throws at it. Unlike hardwood or laminate, ceramic tile won’t soak up water leaks or become warped over time, nor does it require any special cleaning sprays or polishes; simply sweep and mop with warm water as needed. Berres concludes, “With the benefit of durability and easy maintenance, ceramic tile will make your kitchen aesthetically pleasing as well as functional.”
