FAQ: Tile

Frequently Asked Questions About Tile

Tile is a solid flooring option for many Central Indiana homes. It makes sense because it very functional, durable and easy to maintain. Tile is more than a practical choice, however, Indianapolis homeowners are often surprised at tile's design flexibility. Tile’s many styles, shapes, patterns, colors and can give you just the look you want in any room of the house. Whether you’re seeking a simple layout or an intricate pattern, tile can be the perfect choice for you.  When you're considering tile for your Central Indiana home, you'll likely have some questions about how it fits in your lifestyle. The experts at Kermans have the answers.

I love the idea of using tile in our great room but I'm concerned it will be cold.
Tile does have a tendency to feel cool to the touch but it doesn't coll down the temperature of your room. In the summer, people welcome the coolness of tile and don't forget - it's easy to warm things up with an area rug or two from Kermans wide selection of area rugs.

How do I know if glazed or unglazed tiles are right for me? 

Glazed tiles are made the same as unglazed except that a glass layer called a glaze is fused to its' surface by means of tremendous heat. The glaze provides an unlimited array of colors and designs while also protecting the tile from staining. Unglazed ceramic tiles do not show wear as easily because their color extends throughout the tile. Both options are good ones, and our design experts can help you determine which is the best fit for your lifestyle.

I suffer from dust allergies, is tile a good choice for my home?
Yes! Tile is a natural choice that resists mildew, moisture build up and bacteria. Tile won't harbor irritating dust and microorganisms. And bacteria, dust and dirt cannot become embedded in a tile floor like they sometimes can in carpeting.

What sort of maintenance does tile require?
Weekly mopping is about all your floor needs to keep it looking its best. Review our tile cleaning tips for more details.
