Things to Consider Before Choosing Tile Flooring in Ottawa

Tile Flooring
Throughout Ottawa, tile flooring is a very popular option, especially for kitchens and bathrooms, but also for entryways, living rooms, and other residential spaces. This flooring option is favoured among homeowners because it is extremely durable, long lasting, and can produce a wide variety of visually stunning designs. If you are considering choosing a tile floor for your project, there are numerous aspects to first take into consideration.

Type of Material

There are numerous types of tile flooring materials. The two primary choices are ceramic or natural stone. Ceramic tile has the benefit of being less expensive and available in a wide range of colours and patterns. Natural stone, such as marble or granite, has a very classic and coveted look, and natural stone is extremely strong and resilient.

Size of Tile

The size of each individual tile also has an impact on the look and cost of the project. Smaller tiles are often chosen for bathrooms and backsplashes, but are largely going out of style. Larger tiles typically provide a more elegant and sophisticated look.

A very common tile size for flooring is 12″ X 12″. This tile size allows for a large space to be tiled without the need for a large number of individual tiles and is often the easiest to install. When tiles are smaller, it takes longer to set them and tiles that are larger make it more difficult for the tile setter to create an even floor and more time may be spent cutting the tile to fit around plumbing and other obstructions. There are also rectangular and other non-square tiles available to create more interesting patterns, but this will also increase installation time and costs.

Grout and Sealant

The other major component to a tile floor is the grout that holds the tiles into place. The colour of the grout will have a significant impact on the overall look of the floor. Many homeowners choose a grout colour that will either match or contrast the colour of the tiles.

There are also different types of grout, epoxy and cement-based. An epoxy will last an incredibly long time, but makes it very difficult to correct any mistakes or make any changes. The finished tiled and grouted floor can be sealed with a protective sealant.

Grout, especially cement-based grout, can fade overtime when exposed to the sun and can stain. There are stains and cleaners that can correct these problems in the future, and are long-term maintenance costs that should be taken into consideration.
