Tips For Choosing the Right Tile for Your Home
Choosing new floor tiles for your Calgary home is a great idea but take a little consideration. Well-maintained tiles last for a long time so the decisions you make now ill influence your home’s style for years to come. At Nu-Way Floor Fashions, we’re tile, carpet, and hardwood floor experts in the Calgary area. Here are just a few questions to ask yourself before looking for the tiling that’s right for you.
What Room Will the Tiles Be In?
Different rooms in your home will require different kinds of tiling. In the bathroom, for example, you’ll have to make sure that whatever tiling you choose will stand up well to the high levels of moisture that bathrooms experience. Will a ceramic or porcelain tile work better for the room’s purpose? If the tiles will be for an outdoor patio, will they withstand a Calgary winter? Once you’ve chosen the right kind of tile for the room, you’ll be able to focus on things like size, style, and colour.
Will the Tile Colour Match the Whole Room?
It’s best to have an idea of what the completed room will be before setting your heart on particular floor tiles. If you’ve already purchased items for the room, the colour of your tile should match those items. To create a complete harmonious effect of your Calgary home, you have to consider each component of a room in terms of all the others and not simply pick individual components that you like on their own.
How Easy Will the Tile Be to Clean?
It’s a bit dull and practical when imagining your dream kitchen but, trust us, you’ll be thanking yourself for thinking of it in a few months. If you’re going to be cleaning a room frequently (as we do with bathrooms, for instance), you may want to opt for bigger tiles with smooth finishes. Since there are fewer crevasses, they’ll be easier to clean.
