How tile floors increase home value

The beauty alone is enough to raise your home’s value, but people will see a lot more than a classic, elegant design when they look at tile floors. They will also see a floor that is tough, durable, easy to care for, and affordable. These floors can increase your home’s value by up to 75% of the initial cost of product and installation.

Tile is also eco-friendly, appealing especially to the environmentally conscious. It’s made of natural materials, such as clay, sand, and glass. It won’t throw off VOCS (volatile organic compounds) and that aids indoor air quality. There’s also no place for dirt and pollutants to hide; they sit at the surface and wipe off easily, making it ideal for those allergies or asthma.

Reimagining the home

Designers say the bathroom sets the one for the entire house, so think about creating various atmospheres, such as rustic/organic in yours with wood look tiles. You can also create the ambiance of a high-end spa, with glass tiles on the wall and marble stone tile floors. Another idea: Add some decorative interest to your entrance foyer with a theme-of-your-choice floor medallion. You’ll have more ideas too, we’re sure.

Whether it's for the floor, backsplash, wall, or tub/shower surround Capitol Floor Covering, your tile retailer in Hamilton, NJ will show you an almost unlimited number of colors, patterns, designs, shapes, and sizes from which to choose for your design. Just be sure to look at the box carefully so you choose the right one for your installation, as they have different grade levels for strength, porosity, and even "grip" (i.e., slipperiness). Also, have a conversation with your retailer and tell him or her exactly how you plan to use it with information about the room's floor foot traffic.
