Tile flooring has been a go-to flooring option for South Carolina homeowners for several decades. That’s because there are some key benefits of tile floors for residents in the West Columbia, Lexington & Irmo SC areas. In this brief article, our flooring experts at Floor Coverings International Columbia West outline some of their favorite features of tile flooring.

Luxury Kitchen Tile

Tile Flooring Has Huge Variety

The amount of options in the tile flooring category is staggering. Ceramic and porcelain tile are highly versatile and can be arranged in a vast assortment of patterns (think grid, diagonal, pinwheel, herringbone, and border). Popular stone tiles include travertine, slate, marble, granite, onyx, and quartzite. Glass tile can add a wonderful decorative touch in bathrooms. Subway tiles are prevalent for usage in kitchen backsplashes.

Tile Flooring is Highly Durable

There’s a reason why we frequently install tile floors in kitchens and bathrooms. It’s because tile flooring is a highly durable flooring surface. In particular, porcelain tile has a 0.5 percent water absorption rate, meaning those constant spills and splashes won’t harm your floor. To maximize your tile floor’s durability, we recommend contacting our experts for installation, because poorly grouted tile will introduce moisture below the tiles, swelling sub-floor systems, and eventually cracking the tile.

Tile Flooring is Beautiful

Tile flooring is a dream-come-true for creative homeowners. Ceramic and porcelain tile can be arranged in an assortment of colors and patterns. The aforementioned glass tile can add elegance to bathrooms, while subway tile can be the perfect complement in farmhouse kitchens.
