Tile Floors are Durable and Easy to Maintain

Did you know that porcelain tile floors have one of the lowest water absorption rates of any flooring available today? That’s what makes porcelain tile a fantastic option for bathrooms, kitchens, and any other room that sees a lot of humidity and liquid spills. When those liquid spills do happen, a simple towel or mop is all that’s needed. Have a dog or cat? That pet hair can easily collected with a Swiffer.

Tiles Floors are Beautiful

Creative homeowners love to use tile flooring to accentuate specific colors and patterns. Many homeowners in the Charleston, Mount Pleasant, and the Lowcountry areas opt for the classic grid pattern with ceramic or porcelain tile. We’ve seen more adventurous homeowners go for diagonal, pinwheel, herringbone, or border patterns. Subway tiles are tremendously popular for kitchen backsplashes. Glass tile is phenomenally beautiful – especially in bathrooms. Our flooring experts at Floor Coverings International of Charleston are whizzes at helping you get those creative juices flowing.

Tile Flooring Has Tons of Variety

There is much more to the tile flooring category than just ceramic or porcelain. Some of our most common tile is actually made of stone, with travertine, slate, marble, granite, onyx, and quartzite among the most popular. Faux wood tiles are also a great option for homeowners desiring the wood-look for a fraction of the price of real hardwood.
