With so many tiling options available, it’s often easy to get lost in the variety. At Melbourne Tiling and Flooring, we make it our aim to assist our clients in having a hassle-free selection process as well as ultimately deciding on the best style, type and colour for their homes. Ceramic tiles are one of the most popular selections amongst home owners in Melbourne for multiple reasons. Outside of looking astonishing in different areas within the home, ceramic tiles come with an abundance of advantages that ensure they are never overlooked as an option.
An understanding of the upsides to choosing ceramic tiles are is essential in ascertaining that the right choice is made.
Ceramic tile advantages:
When looking at how water resistant ceramic tiles are, we need to look at both glazed ceramic tiles, as well as unglazed ceramic tiles. Glazed ceramic tiles should be at the top of your list when looking for a tile that is water, as well as stain resistant. The protective layer incorporated into the top layer of these tiles is what works toward their resistance. In addition, the fact that these tiles have a natural resistance to high temperatures and humidity means that they are an ideal option for those humid and moisture ridden days in Melbourne. The areas in which glazed ceramic tiles are best suited include the bathroom as well as the kitchen.
Unglazed ceramic tiles, on the other hand, do not have a protective layer that glazed ceramic tiles have. However, this doesn’t mean that they aren’t a great fit for kitchens and bathrooms. You have the option of having these tiles sealed as a means of protecting them against stains and water damage. It is important to remember that when sealing unglazed ceramic tiles, the grout also needs to be sealed. Once this has been done, your unglazed ceramic tiles will have just the properties it needs to look and function brilliantly in your kitchen and bathroom.
Ceramic tiles are durable
When tiling your home, one of your main priorities will be to find tiles that will stand for years. At Melbourne Tiling and Flooring, our high quality ceramic tiles will do just that. They’re tough; they’re durable, and they can take the pressure of furniture, the stomping around of children and the scratching around of pets. When deciding on ceramic tiles from Melbourne Tiling and Flooring, you’re looking on adding a piece to your home that won’t need to be changed for up to twenty years. This saves you time, money and a lot of work.
Provided something or someone was able to apply enough force to a ceramic tile, causing it to crack, there’s little to no stress when it comes to replacing it. Rather than having to rip out your entire flooring, you can replace that single tile.
Maintaining Ceramic tiles
Maintaining ceramic tiles comes with a high degree of simplicity which is one of the reasons why they’re the perfect tiles for stain prone areas such as the kitchen. Whether dirt, stains from sauce or other liquids, all you need is your favourite cleaner, a mop or a soft cloth to wipe your tiles back to beauty. Daily maintenance including mopping, sweeping and vacuuming will cause no damage to your ceramic tiles. They’re that tough!

Another thing that home owners love about ceramic tiles is that they can be reprinted to take on a whole new look. So, if you’ve wished to have hardwood in your kitchen, but are reluctant to incorporate it because it’s just not as durable or stain resistant, ceramic tiles reproduced to look like hardwood is an option you’ll undoubtedly want to explore.
