Tile has endless applications throughout your kitchen, from backsplashes to countertops, to flooring. But you may be wondering why tile is so popular and why so many kitchens choose tile as a material.
Read on to learn more about while it's a great choice when remodeling your kitchen, and why tile might be right for you.
Easy To Clean
One of the biggest reasons why tile is so popular is that it's easy to clean and take care of. Kitchens see a lot of splashes and spills, and in most cases, tile simply wipes clean if you get anything on it.
Warm water and a little bit of soap can get off any grime that may be on your tiles, and the grout between tiles can be scrubbed with a stiff-bristled brush to remove dirt or stains.
Tile, unlike some other materials, can take a beating in the kitchen. It's not uncommon to drop utensils or other kitchen tools onto your floors or countertop, but not to worry.
Your tile surfaces can stand up to some pretty harsh treatment. And if a single tile gets damaged, it isn't the end of the world. Tiles are quite easy to replace because you simply have to remove the one that got damaged instead of replacing the entire floor.
Tiles come in a variety of materials, from ceramic to porcelain, so durability will depend on the material you choose.
Lots of Aesthetic Appeal
Tile is increasingly popular because it comes in so many different colors, shapes, and finishes. Depending on where you're placing the tile, you can choose something glossy so a tile with a matte finish.
You can choose a classic black and white checkerboard pattern, or go with a solid color throughout. Subway tiles look great on a backsplash, while hexagonal tiles can give the whole room a unique vintage appeal.
Depending on how it's used, tile can fit well into both traditional and modern kitchens. It offers a great option to get creative in your kitchen, show off your personality, and make your design dreams a reality
Tile Is Easy To DIY
If you're ready to tackle some elements of your kitchen remodel by yourself, tile is relatively easy to handle on your own. Measure your tiles so you know how many you'll need, and lay adhesive and tile throughout the room.
Next, you'll apply grout with a trowel between the tiles to fill in gaps and hold them in place. You can then seal the group to better protect it from stains and moisture.
Not only is tile easy to lay, but it's also a budget-friendly option as well, even if you decide to get it installed professionally.
Keep Your Kitchen Bright
Light-colored, glossy tiles can add depth and dimension to your kitchen, so these are great options for smaller spaces. You can make your whole kitchen look bigger, brighter, and airier by installing tile.
When combined with light-colored appliances and flooring, you can create a unified room where you'll be happy to spend time.
Better For Your Health
Tile, especially ceramic tile, doesn't cause a problem with allergies and doesn't contain formaldehyde as some wood products do.
Tile doesn't have plastic, PVC, and other harmful pollutants, making it a healthy choice for you or your family. And tile is fire resistant and comes in slip-resistant options, so you can keep your kitchen safer.
