Tile: Versatile, Durable, Beautiful


By Spencer Angland, Marketing Coordinator, Flooring Depot of Panama City

When trying to find the right flooring for your home, there are a lot of factors to consider. What color or style do you want? How important is the durability of your floors? How often do you want to replace your floors? There are so many different types of flooring out there that finding the perfect floors that fit all your needs can be overwhelming. One option that stands the test of time for both beauty and durability is tile.

Tile in BathroomTile can be made of a variety of materials, including porcelain, ceramic, natural stone, and glass to name a few. It also comes in a wide variety of colors, patterns, materials, and styles. You can let your personality come alive with tile. You can choose a more subdued design or pattern for elegance or choose something fun, colorful and vibrant that gives your space an element of design and style. The sky is the limit.

Tile is extremely durable too. It’s great for Florida because it’s water and sand resistant and cleanups are much easier than other products. Plus, if you take care of it, it will look brand new for years to come. Due to its durability, tile can be used just as effectively outside as it is inside. If you are remodeling a pool deck or patio, tile is worth your consideration.

One of our most popular manufacturers of tile is Florida Tile. Florida Tile is a premium brand in the tile industry and is always an option worth considering when looking at tile floors. Beyond floors, Florida Tile offers beautiful options for kitchen and bathroom walls and backsplash as well. One thing to consider is the life cycle of tile. If correctly maintained, tile can last a lifetime. Maintaining tile is also easy, as stated earlier, cleanups are a breeze with a little warm water and a mop. Bacteria, mold, and dust can’t stay on tile easily which means that it will help the air be cleaner for people who have asthma or other allergies.

Tile can be used throughout your home and in addition to flooring is a great option for backsplash in your kitchen or shower walls in your bathroom. It’s easy to keep clean, and it is a great way to add some color, personality, or style to a room. One popular choice for kitchen backsplash is colored glass tiles. Tile doesn’t have to come in the average square shape, there are a lot of different options to choose from based on how you want the room to look. Mosaic tiles are extremely popular and can be used in both modern, beach, and farmhouse designs.

Just like other home improvement projects, adding tile to your home in whatever capacity is a long-term investment in the value of your home. Whether you are looking to live and love your new tile or listing your home, home buyers are searching for properties with all the bells and whistles. Featuring a beautiful tile in the design of your home makes it more desirable with a higher price as well. Buyers know that tile is both beautiful and durable and they feel comfortable paying a little more for a property that has those extras.
