Flooring plays one of the vital roles in decorating homes and matching the theme of your living room, bed room and other rooms. Most of them ignore this and focus on every other detail in the room. Flooring is a part of beautiful room and you need to choose them wisely.
Conventional flooring is done with either grey or white mosaic. People who could afford it went in for granite or even marble. Today the buzz word seems to be vitrified tiles.
Vitrified Tiles have far superior properties compared to marble or natural granite because being a manufactured product their quality is controlled whereas in naturally occurring marble and granite good quality is just a coincidence. Vitrified tiles posses much better mechanical strength, scratch resistance, resistance to acids, alkalies and chemicals, resistance to staining etc compared to marble or natural granite.
Marble has a relatively lower abrasion resistance compared to vitrified tiles. It is calcium carbonate which is strongly attached by Hydrochloric acid which is commonly used in toilet & floor cleaning. It yellows over extended time duration whereas vitrified tiles retain their colour for decades.
Polished natural granite shows several surface defects and a good quality is just a matter of chance whereas vitrified tiles are guaranteed for consistent good quality.
The right kind of flooring gives your home an enhanced look. Different areas usually require different types of tiles or granite and marbles. Marbles, granite and natural stone tiles are harder to maintain.
