This shouldn’t be the case as tile has been around longer than most types of flooring options. It has been a popular choice for many for decades.

WHAT MAKE TILE FLOORING SO POPULAR?

 

Decided to get tile floors for your home or office? Hold your horses; there are still some things that you need to know about the famous flooring option. Do note that tile flooring has been used around the world. Throughout the centuries (yes, centuries), it has been used as a prime option for floors, and even walls. Evidences of usage can be found in the remains of establishments from Ancient Greece and Rome. In these ruins, there are mosaic tile floorings that can be seen. These tile floors are small pieces of either clay, shell, glass, or other materials that were used and placed to create unique, colorful, beautiful patterns.

 

It’s not just Ancient Greece or Rome that used tiles for their floors as there are evidences around the history of Europe wherein such a flooring option was also used, and for many years for that matter. Early Europeans used careful planning to ensure that their floors are relatively flat so that they do not have uneven edges; because if there are, then people would trip over them all of the time.

 

The times have been very kind when it comes to tiles and tile flooring installation as there has been ways to make them more durable, more eye-catching, and sturdier when installed properly. If you are thinking about DIY tile flooring installation, then you have to make sure that you make accurate measurements lest you will have uneven gaps or tiles. A good rule of thumb when doing the installation process is to purchase 20-percent more than what you think you’ll need. This way, should you have any errors in placing the tiles (such as wrong measurements or accidentally breaking one of them) you will easily have replacements at the ready.
