Wayne Kitchen Remodeling

Kitchens are one of the highest traffic areas in your home and are often the focus of remodeling projects in Wayne, PA.  Apart from the constant exposure to feet and shoes, kitchens also have to deal with moisture, food and other mess-making materials. Most people want flooring that will hold up to a variety of elements, which is why tile is popular. Tile is typically easy to clean and durable, and several choices of tile are available.

Popular Types of Tile for Kitchen Flooring

Mazzi Contractors has extensive experience remodeling kitchens in Wayne with various types of tile kitchen flooring. The most common selections are natural stone, porcelain and ceramic. Each comes with pros and cons, yet all are popular and do the job well.

Pros and Cons of Different Tile Flooring Materials

When you are looking at making a choice that best suits you, your lifestyle and your home, be sure you have all of the facts. Each tile flooring material has appealing benefits.

Natural Stone Tile

Natural stone’s aesthetic is undeniable. A product created by Mother Nature herself, stone has patterns, colors and textures that no manmade material can mimic. Of the three most popular options, natural stone is often the most expensive. Stone also requires a higher level of maintenance since it needs to be sealed properly each year. That said, natural stone holds up well, and is incredibly beautiful and durable. You also have choices within the category, including granite, travertine, slate, marble and more.

Ceramic TileCeramic Floor Tile for Wayne kitchen remodeling

Ceramic tile is made from clay. Ceramic is simple to install and glazed tiles are water resistant. Ceramic tile comes in a wide array of style choices and price points, and they are typically the least expensive of the three choices. Generally, ceramic tiles are softer and easier to chip than porcelain, so look for a durable selection.

Porcelain Tile

Comprised of sand and minerals, porcelain tile is denser than ceramic, making it stronger. Porcelain tile is also water resistant, but can be a bigger challenge to install. Overall, porcelain is durable, stain resistant, fireproof and low maintenance. In some porcelain tiles the color is maintained throughout the tile, so any chips are less noticeable. The biggest drawbacks of porcelain are more difficult installation and the price, as porcelain tiles are more expensive.
