Don’t Panic! Tiles might be the answer
February 12, 2016
For most New Zealanders, our home is our most valuable asset which is why it makes sense to choose the right materials to ﬁnish it.
As the way in which we live and entertain changes, having a ﬂooring material that is functional, durable and ﬁts our lifestyle becomes crucial.
What are the benefits of tile as flooring material?
Modern vitriﬁed Porcelain tiles are not affected by spills or moisture. They are virtually non-absorbent (a less than 0.5% water absorption rate). Food or spillages are easily wiped away, so you can spend more time enjoying life rather than worrying about cleaning up after it!
Tiles are also resistant to scratches, dents and UV damage. They are a perfect surface material for families with children or pets, those who love to entertain or simply those of us who don’t want the hassle of damaged ﬂooring.
Furthermore, tiles are extremely hygienic. The easy clean and impenetrable surface means that allergy-causing dust mites and bacteria cannot reside. A home with tiled living areas not only look great, but are also safe and clean.
Porcelain tiles are highly suitable for all areas because they are:
- Super-Hygienic (Inhospitable To Dust Mites And Bacteria)
- Easy To Clean And Maintain
- Fade-Resistant (Uv-Resistant)
- Cost Effective Over Time
How durable should your flooring be?
Living rooms and kitchens are the central hub of any home. Therefore, high performance ﬂoor coverings are required to accommodate high foot trafﬁc and lifestyle activities. It makes sense to select a material that will last, not only saving you time, but also money. After all, why live with a ﬂooring material that looks like it requires changing or major maintenance after a relatively short period of time?

What about the costs?
Whether you are renovating or building, it is critical to think about how long materials will last and the cost of maintenance for your ﬂooring, as well as initial raw material and installation costs. Certain ﬂoor coverings may have lower initial costs but the maintenance involved costs more over time until full replacement is needed.
On top of advantages in functionality and durability, tiles are extremely cost-effective over the life span on your home.
