5 Reasons to Consider Ceramic Kitchen Tile

  • Handyman/Contracting

At Papalia Home Services, we offer more than the regular home service experience. We’ve recently taken it upon ourselves to offer a variety of handyman jobs for your home or business. One of the jobs we can perform is to remodel your kitchen by adding ceramic kitchen tile flooring. This millennia-old style of flooring is an attractive yet functional choice for any kitchen, and we can tell you why you should consider it for your next remodeling.

Here are five reasons to choose ceramic kitchen tile for your next remodeling:


Stain and water-resistant

If you opt to go with glazed tiles, you’ll have a flooring that’s highly resistant to stains and water. Glazed tiles have a hard protective top layer that protects against moisture and can be easily cleaned. This protective layer makes glazed tiles popular in bathrooms, kitchens, and laundry rooms. Keep in mind that you can also choose to get unglazed tiles, which require sealing to get that protection. Whatever tiling you choose, you’ll also need to get regular sealing to protect the grout from water and stains.


Numerous design options

A major advantage of tiles is that they can come in a wide variety of colors, shapes, and designs. You’re certain to find a tiling look that perfectly matches your kitchen. Even the grout comes in a wide array of colors. Go with a color that matches the tiles for a streamlined look or use a black or white grout to help the tiles stand out.


Highly durable

In addition to stains and water, ceramic tiles are highly resistant to damage. Tiles are unlikely to crack due to heavy foot traffic or from having something heavy fall on them. If a single tile does become damaged, it’s fairly easy to replace it.



Because dirt and stains rest on top of tiling, it’s very easy to clean tile floors. All most messes require is a simple mopping to remove them if you use ceramic kitchen tile. In the event of tougher stains, heavy-duty cleansers can help you get them out.


Environmentally friendly

Ceramic tiles are made up of sand, glass, and clay, all of which are naturally-occurring materials. These tiles are also easy to reuse and recycle, meaning their usage has a small effect on the environment. Also, ceramic tiling can keep your home cool in the summer while insulating your home in the winter.
