Looking for a flooring that says “home sweet home”? Your mind might automatically drift to traditional hardwood, but considering that ceramic tile provides a look that’s indistinguishable from real wood as well as the lowest life cycle cost of any flooring, the real sweetness is in the savings. Plus, ceramic tile provides water, stain, scratch, and fire resistance that you won’t get with hardwood, giving you flooring that will stand up to whatever life throws at it.
