Ceramic tile adds a “laundry list” of benefits to your laundry room.
Ideally, your laundry room should be designed in a way that doesn’t make cleaning feel like dirty work. Using ceramic tile in your laundry room means very little maintenance for cleaning the room itself. Water is often all it takes to clean messes on ceramic tile surfaces.
If occasional deep cleaning for a tough mess requires stronger cleansers or disinfectants, you don’t need to worry about your tile surface fading. The color of a ceramic tile is baked right in, making your surfaces fade resistant.
Ceramic tile is also ideal for laundry-mudroom combinations, where dirt from our daily activities is constantly being tracked indoors. Ceramic tile won’t stain, scratch, scuff, or easily chip, despite regular wear and tear. And, because the laundry room often serves this kind of dual purpose as a mudroom or can also be part of a bathroom or area of the kitchen, tucked in the basement, connected to a pantry, or used as a pet’s sanctuary, trust ceramic tile to beautifully function in any area of the home.
Water resistance is one of the most important considerations when it comes to laundry rooms. From leaky washing machines to spilled detergent, ceramic tile provides a water-resistant surface. Moreover, when properly specified and installed, ceramic tile creates a waterproof installation system, unlike other flooring material options. Additionally, ceramic tile offers slip-resistant options to provide more traction in areas exposed to wet conditions, such as laundry rooms, entryways, kitchens, bathrooms, walkways, patios, and more.
Between loads of dirty laundry, your laundry room area may seem less than hygienic. Ceramic tile’s inorganic surface naturally resists the growth of bacteria, mold, and mildew. There are also antimicrobial options available that can suppress and even destroy harmful microorganisms, such as mold, fungi, bacteria, and viruses.
From a simple laundry room backsplash to a luxurious dog shower, ceramic tile can style your laundry room to fit your functional needs, as well as designs that fit every decor. Consult our Guide to Laundry Room Tile to help you sort out all the options for your next laundry room project.
