Factors to Consider When Choosing Tile for Your Home

interior of a kitchen

If you want to incorporate the sleek, timeless look and feel of tile into your home’s flooring design, you will find that you have a wealth of tile options to choose from. To help you make the best decision for your personal style, check out the distinctive benefits of some of the different types of tile, as listed below:


Some of the most beautiful options for tile, such as marble, are also the most sensitive to high traffic and daily wear, so they may be best suited as accents in the home. In the kitchen, durability is a key factor for flooring, because you want to select tiles that not only stand up to foot traffic, but are also resistant to water and chemicals.


Tile can be one of the more expensive flooring options, but it is worth the cost when you choose the right tile for a given area. If you do decide to splurge on pricier tile, consider using it for a decorative mosaic or in areas where daily traffic is minimal. Synthetic materials are often a more cost-effective option for tile, and they are available in a wide range of styles to suit your home without breaking your budget.


Different parts of your home will have their own unique challenges, so you should choose tile on a room-by-room basis. One of the most oft-neglected factors to consider in every room is natural light, which can damage tile flooring through extended UV exposure. In rooms where there is a steady supply of natural light, choose treated tiles with muted colors that are not prone to fading. Rethinking your window treatments can also help you preserve the life of your tile in sunlit rooms.
