What sets tile surfaces apart? When it comes to floor coverings there are few potential options more durable than tile. This is partially due to weight dispersal and partially to the natural resilience of the material. It is also absolutely fireproof. Not only will it not burn when exposed to open flames, it won’t even give off smoke or fumes. Tile is ideal for both bathrooms and kitchens because of how easy it is to clean. And, finally, it is simply a beautiful material with fantastic color permanence, meaning that it won’t fade over time, even in direct sunlight.
