Andean Sepia Quartz Tiles Design by Arizona Tile
If you are considering fitting tiles in your home, make sure that quartz tiles are on your shortlist. They are elegant, durable, affordable, low maintenance and versatile as they can be applied to floors as well as walls and work tops in your bathroom, kitchen, sun room or home office.
It does not really matter where you buy your tiles, be it a Dallas tile location, Michigan of even a great Las Vegas tile location, as long as you buy a good tile like Quartz tiles. They’re a stunningly attractive and very low maintenance floor and wall surface tiles, perfect for high traffic areas in the home. Quartz tiles, from a division of the same folks who bring you all the famous electrical appliances and cell phones, are made from 93% quartz, which is one of the toughest minerals known to man, but one such tile, the Samsung Radianz goes further as they engineer their tiles to be four times tougher than natural stones such as granite.
If you want to get more adventurous in your next renovation project, and venture beyond just the standard kitchen or bathroom, the range of colors and a wide choice of tiles including mosaic styles can also be used to breathe new creativity into your home office, your pool, your work tops, hallways and more besides. Imagine your home office desk top with a gleaming slab of moody dark quartz glinting in the light of your desk lamp.
Hardly surprisingly, quartz tiles have rapidly become popular because they not only look extremely elegant, but also they are very easy to maintain. Here are five solid reasons for opting for quartz tiles over some other tile choices:
Interior decorators have become very excited about quartz in recent years not just for its low maintenance qualities, but also the way in which reflective mirror particles, incorporated into the tiles to make them sparkle, catch the light like tiny twinkling stars and add a whole new dimension to floors and work tops.
Quartz tiles are renowned for their durable quality. Once fitted they last a long, long time. Quartz tiles do not break easily, even if you drop that heavy casserole pot on top of them. And because they are resistant to stains, dirt and liquid spillage, kids won’t dull them with muddy boots and shoes or accidental sticky and acidic Coke stains. They really do outlast most other types of tiles, so if you are decorating for the long haul, they really make an excellent choice.
Remember wherever you are in the US., be it in a Dallas Tile shop, Michigan Tile shop or even the famous Las Vegas tile shop, make sure you seriously look into the Quartz tile ranges; and ensure you take a photo of the room with you as to ensure a good color match, and it will therefore blend perfectly with the tones and colors of the room.
Unlike some tiles, quartz floor tiles are not difficult to fit. There is no need to hire an expensive installer or designer to pile on the cost of your renovation fees. And quartz tiles actually work out less expensive in comparison to other tiles such as marble and onyx.
And although this may not at first seem like a saving, consider this. Quartz tiles don’t get dangerously slippery when wet, so they are great for bathroom floors. When properly fitted they can provide excellent water resistance so there is no expensive water seepage or leaks from the bathroom to damage expensively wallpapered or plastered walls and ceilings, and they don’t require sealant. So there are savings in several areas.
