Why Ceramic Bathroom Tiles?

There are several reasons for choosing ceramic bathroom tiles Hollywood Florida. Most people select this type of tile because it is purely decorative and very practical. Not only is it one of the most cost-effective tile options, but it is also bacteria and moisture resistant. Ceramic tiles are very durable and it requires a bit more than a mop or damp sponge to keep it clean. Additionally, if you love having plenty of colors, shapes, and textures from which to choose from, ceramic tiles will provide you a never-ending array of style options. 

How Much Does It Cost?

Unsurprisingly, prices differ based on the size of your project and the tile you choose. To give an estimate, you can purchase a 12″ x 12″ ceramic wall or floor tile for about 78 cents per square foot, $25 to $45 or maybe more for mosaic tiles, or $3 for white subway tile. However, it is worth remembering that the prices may vary depending on the type, quality, and size of the bathroom tiles Hollywood Florida. 

Porcelain Tiles Vs. Ceramic Tiles

Amidst contrary marketing claims, the difference between porcelain and ceramic tiles mostly boils down to the price and ratings under a Porcelain Enamel Institute (PEI). Both ceramic and porcelain tiles belong to a larger ceramic group wherein the latter has higher durability and hardness standard than the former. Because of this, people often opt for porcelain bathroom tiles Hollywood Florida. However, ceramic tiles are cost-effective and practical if used in areas that do not have high-traffic.
