Porcelain bathroom tiles are an ideal way of lengthening the time your bathroom walls and floors will last. The average floor and sub flooring in a home will only last about 60 years. With this being said, the sub flooring will only hold carpet or linoleum for about 10 years based on the water absorption factors. Since these types of floor coverings have water absorption rates that are higher than all others, it makes sense that they should not be installed in a bathroom where so much water is used. Porcelain bathroom tiles can last for as long as the sub flooring will last when properly installed and cared for.
Granite. A bathroom floor may incorporate solid tiles alternating with patterned tiles. You need to take the size of the bathroom into consideration when planning a flooring design. Tiles with a pattern may not work well in a small bathroom because the space can be easily overtaken by a bold tile pattern. A larger bathroom may look nice with patterned tile placed in the center of the room for a sophisticated and bold statement.
