Tile floor is an ideal choice for Paradise Valley, because it won’t get dirty from the sand or pebbles you track in, and it can withstand the extreme temperatures that come along with desert life. Tile floor also lasts for many decades. All you have to do to renew tile floors is invest in professional tile and grout cleaning or tile restoration, and you’ll add many more years to their life.
You have several options for tile flooring, depending on your budget and your design preferences. Here are a few of the most popular Paradise Valley floor tiles to consider for your home:
Ceramic tile is one of the most popular flooring choices because it is durable and affordable. In fact, it is one of the most affordable options for tile flooring.
When you think of ceramic, you may think of milky, white finishes that are so popular with home decor items. However, ceramic tile comes in a wide variety of colors, textures and styles. You can get small tiles that are only a few inches wide, or you can choose large tiles that are a foot or two wide. You can choose solid-colored tiles that have a creamy finish, or you can choose tiles that mimic the mottled look of natural stone. The best choice will depend on the size of the room and the look you are trying to create. However, no matter what style you choose, you will create a whole new look for the room.
Ceramic tile is easy to maintain, and glazed ceramic tile is impervious to water penetration and stains. You just need to clean and damp mop the floors to keep them looking great. If a tile cracks or chips, it is easy to replace it without disturbing the rest of the floor.
Natural stone has a gorgeous appearance that will instantly elevate the look of your home. Stone tile is also very flexible, and it can be used for every room inside your home or for outdoor spaces like your sunroom or patio. Stone tile is highly resilient and resistant to damage.
Marble, slate, travertine and granite are used to create stone tile, and each has a different look, giving you variety in your selection. Marble is the most vulnerable of these choices as it can absorb water. However, the rest are resistant to water and are very durable.
All are very beautiful, and all will add value to your home.
Saltillo and Mexican Tile
Saltillo, Talavera and other Mexican tile has a very distinctive look that is perfect for Arizona homes. The tile has a natural rust or adobe color that fits right in with the desert landscape. However, you can buy the tile in a variety of other colors and styles to suit your personal taste.
Mexican tile is made from clay, so it has a more forgiving feel when you walk on it. The tile won’t seem as hard or sterile. It is warm and inviting.
Natural, uncolored Mexican tile disguises dirt so you don’t have to worry about staining. You just need to sweep and mop regularly and keep the seals healthy.
