Armstrong floor tile is one of the most easily recognized brands of tile on the market today. This particular brand of tile is known not only for its strength and durability but also for its beauty and elegance. The Armstrong floor tile brand is expansive enough to offer many selections that suit many budgets from the low economy range to high society range and has every kind of taste in between well represented as well.
Armstrong floor tile caters not only to the single home consumer but also to much larger corporate consumers as well. Commercial flooring by Armstrong is made to stand up to more rigorous use and abuse than traditional home flooring and commands a higher price tag for that benefit.
These floors are often quite lovely but their prices do not accurately convey the price of Armstrong flooring for the home. Be sure you are comparing apples to apples when price shopping and not apples to oranges.
Benefits of Floor Tile
When searching for the perfect flooring for your home I am sure you have come across more than one sample of Armstrong floor tile. What you may not know is the incredible value you are holding in your hand at the time. The fact is that vinyl tile is much cheaper than many flooring options on the market today.
Another great thing about tile is the fact that modern tile is easier than ever to install. You simply peel and stick (once you have painstakingly measured and have the perfect starting point that is). All that considered it is one of the easiest floors in todays market to install. If I was able to do it on my first try, anyone can do it.
Another great thing about tile, particularly Armstrong floor tile is the vast selection. You have a lot of options with tile from which to choose and define the look of your room. This of course, can apply to any room. Tile is not limited to kitchens and baths, especially the tile of today.
Tile is a durable alternative for entryways, dining rooms, living rooms, utility rooms, bedrooms, basements, and any other room I may have left out of the description.
Perhaps my favorite reason to install vinyl tile in the home is the fact that it is very low maintenance. All you really need is to sweep and mop regularly (paying occasional attention to scuffs) in order to keep your tile floors looking nice.
Cons of Tile Floors
It would be rather remiss to mention the many benefits of installing flooring such as an Armstrong tile floor without also mentioning some of the less than favorable consequences. The first of these consequences is the fact that tile has a much lower life expectancy than hardwood, ceramic tile, or granite flooring would have. There is also the fact that there are many seams in which dirt and moisture can creep that will create issues over time.
Vinyl tile is somewhat susceptible to gouging and tearing than ceramic tile; even Armstrong floor tile despite its extraordinary strength is more fragile than well-installed ceramic tile. Vinyl tile is also less likely to raise the value of your home than stone, granite, or hardwood flooring.
No matter what type of flooring you choose for your home, the important thing is that you make an informed decision and have all the facts before you.
