Choosing the Right Tile for Your Fixer Upper Home

Tile selection is a large part of home remodeling projects, considering there are several rooms and surfaces where it can be used. Tile can be used in bathrooms, kitchens, bedrooms, even entryways, and there are various styles and materials to choose from.

Choosing the right tile for your fixer upper project starts with determining the style and function it’s needed for.

Keep in mind for projects that tile flooring is used near water, including bathroom flooring, tile needs to be slip resistant to avoid accidents. If the style of tile you like is not slip-resistant, you can have it treated to have a grip on it for safety reasons.

For tile being used in outdoors space, weatherproofed tile is needed so that it can withstand the elements outdoors. Tile being used in the kitchen should be scratch-resistant because of the cooking, spills, and entertainment centered around the kitchen.

There are various types of tiles to choose from, including ceramic tile, natural stone, porcelain, and engineered. Talk to our design experts about tile selection so that you can choose the best tile for your home remodeling project that will not only look great but last for years to come.
