Are you in need of flooring for your business? You may have already considered options like carpet or vinyl, but did you know that tile flooring is also perfect for many commercial spaces? From its appearance to its maintenance routines, tile has a lot to offer, so don’t overlook this classic material when choosing new flooring for your commercial space.
Tile is one of the easiest floors to clean. Unlike carpet, hardwood, and other floors, there are no major requirements to keep a tile floor in good shape. On the contrary, tile only requires a simple sweeping, vacuuming, or mopping as needed to keep the floor spic and span. With basic day-to-day care, your tile flooring will look great for a long time.
Tile floors are one of the most durable flooring options available. As such, tiles are an excellent choice for commercial areas with high-traffic like entryways, hallways, or retail spaces. Most types of tile will stand up well to a high volume of foot traffic.
Along with their exceptional durability, tiles come in a wide range of shapes, colors, and sizes. As an aesthetically flexible flooring option, tile is sure to compliment any interior design preference. If you need to replace the flooring in your Madison business, you’ll easily be able to find the flooring that will seamlessly match the existing design aesthetic of your space.
Types of Commercial Tile
There are three common types of commercial tile you should know about.
- Ceramic Tile: Ceramic refers to the clay material which forms a tile and encompasses many of the most common tiles. They are highly durable and resistant to water.
- Porcelain Tile: Porcelain is a specialized type of ceramic tile which is more impervious to moisture and even sturdier than non-porcelain ceramic tiles. While porcelain outperforms standard ceramic, it’s also more expensive than other types of ceramic tile.
- Quarry Tile: Quarry tiles are less visually diverse than porcelain and ceramic tiles. But on the flip side, they are in fact more durable than porcelain, more water-resistant, and they tend to have a more textured and slip-resistant finish. Quarry is therefore the most practical tile option. Thanks to these practical qualities, proprietors often choose quarry for kitchens, outdoor pathways, and other damage- and spill-prone areas.
