Toronto's housing market is dominated by condos. Go anywhere in the city and you will see the signs of condominiums being sold, or new condo buildings getting built to satisfy ever-growing demand. Even with this popularity, it isn't enough to rely on the "if you build it, they will come" mentality. Condos need to be appealing in order to get sold, and one of the ways to not only increase a property's appeal but also raise its value is through the use of proper flooring. The right floor tile, or even wall tile, can dramatically improve the aesthetic and commercial value of a property and produce functional and fashionable benefits for years on end.
Why Choose Tile Flooring in New Condominiums?
Durable and Long Lasting
All tile types are able to withstand the test of time and stay functional but ceramic tile and porcelain tile in particular stand out in this area. Porcelain and ceramic floor or wall tile are highly resilient to wear and tear and, if installed and cared for properly, will stay in top form for years.
A Variety of Options
Tile comes in a staggering amount of colours, textures, styles, and shapes that can be used to fully customize a condo's appearance. One of tile's more popular stylistic options is its ability to replicate the appearance of high-quality stone or wood, allowing for beautiful hardwood looks without the same vulnerabilities or maintenance requirements.
With the right glaze, floor and wall tile can be maintained with minimal effort. All you need to do is give the tile an occasional wipe-down with soap and water or the cleaning product of your choice, along with a bit of vacuuming or dusting, and it will stay in tip-top condition.
Great for High-Traffic Areas
Tile is excellent at withstanding heavy traffic, whether from bulky items getting wheeled or dragged over top or from the constant pounding of shoes and boots. This makes ceramic or porcelain tile ideal for any high-traffic areas—such as entrances and exits or lobbies—when designing a condo building.
Floor and wall tile is most often associated with bathrooms and kitchens for very specific reasons. Tile is amazingly water-resistant and can be used in moisture-rich environments without becoming damaged or degraded. Take advantage of this resilience when designing a condo's kitchens, bathrooms, or public amenities, like pools.
