There’s no doubt that tile can add architectural interest to your Port Saint Lucie home. It’s been used for thousands of years throughout Europe and the Middle East, the earliest dating back to 4000 B.C. in Egypt. Once available only to the wealthiest, it finally became an affordable luxury available to all.

We’re talking about tile and Prianti’s Flooring of Port Saint Lucie, Fl wants to debunk any myths surrounding it. This is what you should focus on, says this flooring store:

1. It can be stylish and exciting. Forget those thoughts about the plain white floors you see in sterile atmospheres like hospitals; they HAVE to be antiseptic-looking, but your home doesn’t. There’s an overwhelming array of colors, textures and patterns, so you can let your creative juices flow. Mix and match to build your own unique style.
2. It can be cold...or warm. This material is one of the best heat conductors, so if your bare foot is warmer, it will send cool to you. If your foot is colder, say if the material is in a sunny, warm area, it will also send that to you.
3. It’s cost-effective. It might seem expensive at first, but look at the big picture; it does last for a long time, and there’s a pretty good reason it has been used for thousands of years! When you compare it to the lifespans of some other materials that may last only 15 or 20 years, it sounds pretty good, doesn’t it? Also, remember that you don’t need to select only one pattern and texture for the entire room; when you coordinate you’ll be selecting different ones, each with different prices.
4. You get to choose the version most appropriate for different applications. Many go off the track here, because they think it’s all the same so they create a “one-size-fits-all” kind of installation. There are two grades: Porcelain tile is thick, hard, non-porous and tough. It’s made from denser clay, making it more durable and scratch-resistant. That makes it perfect for installation in the kitchen or areas, like the foyer, that have heavy foot traffic. Ceramic is thinner and fired at higher temperatures, so this type of tile flooring is great for areas, like the bath, where people probably won’t be wearing shoes often. Each might have a slightly different requirement for installation, so it’s important to do it correctly.
