Tile floors, like hardwood floors, is one of those things that makes a house a home. Typically, tile is installed in bathrooms, kitchens, entryways and laundry rooms. The entryway to your home is an especially good place – people sometimes track their dirty shoes inside, and tile is easier to clean than a stained carpet! Before you decide to install tile in your home or office, you may want to consider the pros and cons.
For example, you probably won’t want tile throughout a daycare center which cares for toddlers, or in an elderly person’s home which, geographically speaking, experiences four seasons such as Springfield, MO. (the cold may not be good for the bones in their feet)! So, without further ado, here are the Pros and Cons of Installing Tile in Your Home or Office!
