Pros of Ceramic Tile

Durable – Ceramic tile is incredibly popular in bathrooms because it is resistant to humidity and moisture. It is also exceptionally sturdy, so it can even stand up to the high-traffic and frequent messes of the kitchen.

Low-Maintenance – Any messes on your ceramic tile can still be easily cleaned with a damp cloth and soap.

Variety – The product options are virtually endless for ceramic tile. Not to mention, the design and color possibilities for ceramic tile are countless. Manufacturers can use any color of glaze and any pattern they want when making the tiles, so ceramic tile leaves a lot of room for customization and adaptation to your personal style preferences.


Cons of Ceramic Tile

Hardness – The drawback of being so resilient is that ceramic tile can feel hard and uncomfortable underfoot.

Chipping – Ceramic tile’s hardness also means that if you drop something heavy on a tile or do some other damage to it, the damage will manifest as chips and cracks, which can be difficult to fix.

Installation – Ceramic tile installation is extremely difficult to take on as a do-it-yourself project, so it is highly recommended that you have professionals install it for you.
