Choosing a bathroom floor for your home in Dix Hills can be challenging. It needs to be able to stand up against excess water and humidity and fit both your budget and style. Because both porcelain and luxury vinyl tiles are virtually waterproof, our experts at Floor Coverings International® of Farmingdale are sometimes asked how well they compare in the other areas. Here’s a quick run-down of the two to help you determine if one of them is right for your Dix Hills home.
If you’ve been shopping for porcelain tiles recently, you know that they are available in the natural wood and stone looks that have become so trendy over the last few years. Of course, there are other styles available too. The wide variety of colors, shapes, and sizes present endless opportunity when it comes to creating a style that’s right for your home. But the personalization doesn’t end there! You can even customize the color of your grout to complement or accent your tiles however you’d like. All these options give porcelain tile an edge when it comes to customizing the look of your bathroom.
Luxury Vinyl Tile:
The rise in popularity of luxury vinyl tiles in recent years has led to a significant increase in the varieties of styles and colors that are available. So, while you may not have as wide of a selection of luxury vinyl tile as you do porcelain tiles, there are still plenty to choose from.
When it comes to comfort luxury vinyl tile has a softer, warmer feel, giving it a definite advantage. Another advantage of luxury vinyl is that it’s easier to maintain. Routine cleaning consists of regular sweeping and mopping once every week or so, depending on how much traffic your floors see.
Finally, luxury vinyl is also generally less expensive. So, if you want to use the same flooring in multiple rooms to promote a feeling of continuity throughout your home, luxury vinyl might be the better option.
