Everything you install in your home is an investment. You need it to last long and to serve you for a very long time. Tiling your shower stall makes it very beautiful and easy to clean. However, using the wrong tiles could cost you a lot. Therefore, before installing the ceramic tiling you need to know the pros and cons of the tiles and determine whether they will be a good investment or not.

Advantages

1. Easy to clean and maintain

One of the bathroom hazards facing most families and homes are the stains from hard water and soap that damage the tilling in the shower stall. Sometimes you find that some stains have become a permanent ugly mark in your bathroom, making it look dirty even after you have just cleaned it.

Ceramic tiling is great for your bathroom because they do not stain easily. Sweeping with water and drying with a cloth is all you will need to keep them spotless.

2. They are durable

They are the best tiles for your bathroom because they are very durable and tough. This makes it very difficult for them to break or crack. When installed properly, they can serve you for up to 20 years. They are also water resistant and will therefore not lose their quality as a result of water damage.

3. They are affordable

Most ceramic tiles will cost you anywhere between $5- $10 per square foot. This is very cost effective considering they will last you for many years and will not require much in terms of maintenance. They are also very good because they come in many different designs that are guaranteed to match your taste.

Ceramic tiling needs precision cutting and fitting. That is why contractors and DYI enthusiasts prefer diamond cutting tools for ceramic placement and fitting. Diamonds – as a superhard material – offers many advantages over other common abrasives.

To remove old tiling and other flooring/wall materials – including glue and membrane removal – diamond grinding tools gives you best performance. You can view diamond tooling online for product and use information. But this may be too technical for most DYI enthusiasts. You may want to find a flooring or tile specialist from your area.

4. Allergen free

Because of their hard nature, ceramic tiles rarely attract any dust or pollen. Although some particles may land on the tiles, they stand out and are not embedded in the tile. They are therefore easy to clean with a sponge.

Disadvantages

1. They are very hard

Although their hard nature is great in making them more durable and easy to clean, they can become very difficult to stand on especially when one is bare foot. This can be dealt with by ensuring you wear comfortable footwear while showering because you will be standing for long periods of time.

2. They can be very cold

Their material is not very good at retaining heat. This feature can make them very cold especially during the winter. They will shock your toes when you walk on them bare foot. In the summer, however, they can be a very comfortable underfoot.

Conclusion

Ceramic tiles are great and have numerous advantages when installed in the shower stall. Do not be selfish, share this information with your friends on social media and let them know the benefits ceramic tilling has for them.
