10 Reasons Why to Choose Tiles for Your Home?
At The Yorkshire Tile Company, we can name many reasons why you should choose tiles for your home. Here are our top 10...
Tiles are hygienic; they don’t attract dirt or give off odours, and are very easy to clean. Tile grouts are also available with anti-bacterial properties.
Good news for asthma and allergy sufferers - tiles don’t harbour dust or mites.
3. Hard wearing
Tiles don’t fade and are very hard wearing, making them last much longer (years!) than carpets and paint.
Tiles give a room a ‘fresh’ feeling.
Every room in the house can benefit from tiles…even outdoor patios and stairs!
6. Water resistant
Tiles can withstand water damage, making them ideal for shower and wet room areas.
7. Added value
Tiles can add value and extra appeal to your home.
Floor tiles are comfortable on your feet and aren’t cold to walk on; tiles actually absorb and retain heat.
9. Efficient heating
Nevertheless, many people choose to install undertile heating systems; they offer a more cost efficient and effective way of warming any room (compared to standard radiators) and the purchase cost is surprisingly low.
Tiles don't have to be expensive. In general, tiles are no more expensive than paints, carpets and wood. In fact, the life-span of a tile can make them much cheaper over the long term.
