Myths About Tile Flooring

By FAF Staff Writer, (279 words) Posted in Tile Flooring on October 13, 2008

Because of its diversity in color and shape, and its amazing durability, tile has been a popular flooring choice down through the ages. Tile can be set in just about any room, not just your bathroom or kitchen. If you're thinking about installing tile floors or already have them, here is a list of common tile flooring myths that you may want to be aware of:

• All tile floors are cold. The temperature of tile flooring matches the room's temperature. Radiant heat systems can also be installed under the floor to warm it.

• Smaller tiles work better in a small room. Larger tiles open up a room and make it appear bigger. However, smaller tiles do work better for rooms with uneven floor surfaces.

• If exposed to too much sunlight, tile will eventually fade. Because a tile's color and glaze are fired on at extreme temperatures, it can be installed in sunrooms, outdoors, and other places exposed to sunlight without worrying about fading.

• Any tile can be installed outside. Some tiles can absorb more water than others. A rating system on absorbency determines which type can go outside or not. Most porcelain tiles and natural stones are appropriate for outdoor conditions.

• Tile has to be sealed. Glazed tiles do not have to be sealed.

• Tile maintenance can be difficult. Tile floors are maintained primarily by sweeping and damp mopping with water.

• Tile can be glued directly to any floor. Tiles need to be set with an anti-fracture membrane or they will eventually crack.
