Tile Installation – Fox Chapel, Pennsylvania 15238
Ceramic floor tile is a great option for various kinds of spaces. It's available in a large variety of designs and sizes and is durable and easy to clean.
When picking tile for your space, make sure to choose a size that goes well with the dimensions of the space. A large room will appear too busy with smaller floor tiles. Large sized tiles will overpower a little room. Tiles are available in sizes ranging from 1" to 2 feet so you should be able to get a size that looks good in your room.
Also, you should consider your decor prior to you buying your tile. If you have an elegant looking room then a polished marble floor tile might look great. For those who have decor with a southwestern, Mexican or Italian style then a old-fashioned brilliant looking floor tile is the most suitable. An even, polished type of tile will be slick when it gets wet so you may not want to install that in an entry room or bathroom. Also, tile gets cold so if you're installing it in a basement, you better buy a warm pair of house slippers.
Be sure to select a grout that complements your floor tile. A dark colored grout is best as a white grout will have a tendency to get dirty looking quickly.

Putting in ceramic tile isn't too hard, but if you have never done it before and are not very handy to begin with you might be better off with a flooring expert. You'll find nothing worse than shelling out a bundle on floor tile only to have it look lousy because you didn't do the installation right!
After you have the tile in place, put in the grout as per the manufacturers directions and seal correctly. It helps to buy a high quality grout and sealer and will be well worth the additional expense over time.
