Tile is durable

If you're worried about moisture, consider putting a sealant on any tiles that are more porous than others. Cement tile flooring, for example, is durable and affordable, and the porosity of the tile can be remedied by putting a sealant over the tiles after they are installed.

When we started renovating our home, I knew that it was going to be a long process. By the time we got to the flooring, I was tired of making big decisions. Part of me just wanted to give up and let the contractor choose something that he thought would mesh well with the rest of the paint colors. However, I realized that since I would be living with the flooring for awhile, I should really take the time to choose. I spent a few weeks evaluating different flooring samples, and I ended up going with a really nice travertine. This blog is all about finding the right flooring for your home.
