What You Need To Know About Ceramic Tile

Ceramic tile flooring is incredibly versatile. Ceramic tiles can work in any room of your home. While you often see tiles in kitchens and bathrooms, you can also use them in living rooms and bedrooms. Ceramic tiles are also incredibly durable and easy to care for. While you can't go wrong with this flooring material, that doesn't mean it will be easy to select flooring. Here are three things to know about ceramic tile.

It's Very Versatile

One reason for ceramic's continuing popularity is the versatility it offers. Ceramic tile comes in various colors, shapes, sizes, and patterns. Popular tile shapes include rectangles, squares, hexagons, mosaics, and more. Ceramic tiles can be laid in various patterns, such as herringbone and basketweave. There are even ceramic tiles that look like natural stone or hardwood. If you aren't sure about this flooring material, checking out different ceramic tile products may help you decide. Ceramic tile works well in any home and for any style. 

There's A Range Of Price Points

Finding ceramic tile products in your price range isn't going to be difficult due to the sheer amount of options you have. However, it's still a good idea to consider the cost of this flooring material. While there are many affordable ceramic tile options, some are pretty expensive. The size, shape, and design of the tile impact the cost. Some formats will also be more challenging to install, increasing installation labor costs. For ceramic tiles, your costs can range from $2 to $40 per square foot. Installation labor tends to vary from $5 to $15 per square foot, depending on the installation's difficulty. 

It Can Be Tricky To Install

If you want to save by installing ceramic tile as a DIY project, you may want to reconsider. Ceramic tile products are less DIY-friendly than other types of flooring. Things like subfloor and the type of tiles you choose will impact what installation methods work best. For most homeowners, it's better to save themselves the hassle and to opt for professional installation. Professionals know how to install ceramic tile properly and efficiently. 

If you are looking into ceramic tile flooring, here's what to know. First, ceramic tile is highly versatile, with many styles, colors, sizes, shapes, and patterns to choose from. Second, there's a ceramic tile installation for almost any price point. Finally, installing ceramic tiles can be tricky, so it's best to leave this work to a professional.
