There are many benefits to using tiles vs other flooring options in living areas such as foyers, living rooms, kitchens and even bedrooms. The primary benefits of choosing tile flooring include:

Tiles are highly durable. Compared to other hard flooring options, tiles are one of the most rugged. They will not succumb to issues like scratches and scuffs the way timber flooring can. They’re also water-resistant, making them the ideal option to use in bathrooms and other areas where moisture can be a problem. You won’t see any rotting or warping even when they’re exposed to standing water.

Tiles are cost effective. While the upfront investment may be more than certain other types of flooring, tiles are actually one of the most cost-effective forms of flooring you can get when you consider their longevity. With proper care, even the most inexpensive tiles can last 20 years or more.

Tiles don’t require a lot of maintenance. In high-traffic living spaces, other forms of flooring may be prone to scratches and other damage. Tiled floors will maintain their appearance and only require regular cleaning with a mop or rag, as well as occasional grout cleaning. Most household cleaners are safe to use on glazed tiles since they won’t absorb the cleaning solution or cause discolouration.

Tiles don’t negatively impact your indoor air quality. Some other types of flooring can hold onto dust, pollen and other allergens like mould and some give off volatile organic compounds (VOCs), which can be harmful to human health. Tiles don’t cling to these substances, they can be wiped down easily if you notice any dust or debris build-up.

Tiles are versatile in terms of style. You can choose from a huge selection of styles, shapes, colours, textures, patterns and more. You can also mix and match various tiles to create truly unique designs that you won’t see anywhere else.

Frequently asked questions

What colour should I choose for my tiles?

The right colour for your interior tiles will depend on how much natural light the room gets, the size of the room and the mood you want to create. Lighter tile colours can make spaces look larger and brighter, while darker tiles are ideal for creating a warm, formal look.

How many tiles do I need?

At Traditional Tiles & Flooring, we can calculate the approximate number of tiles you’ll need to fill your space based on the size of the room, so it’s essential that you measure the area accurately. We also recommend that you order an extra 10% to keep in storage and to allow for any breaks or cuts during installation.

What kind of finish should I choose for my tiles?

The type of finish you choose for your interior tiles should not only be based on their looks but also their functionality. Matte tiles are better at hiding watermarks and smudges than glossy tiles, while glossy tiles are reflective and can make a space appear brighter by bouncing light around a room.

Are tiles waterproof?

Some tile materials, such as glazed tiles, are water-resistant if they are installed properly, but not all tiles are suitable for areas with high moisture content, such as around pools, showers and bathtubs. Check the manufacturer’s instructions to find tile that is suitable for these areas.

How do I clean tiles?

Tile is a low-maintenance flooring option that doesn’t require any special cleaning products to keep it looking its best. Simply mop and sweep tile flooring and scrub any tile walls to keep them clean.
