Ceramic Tile: Environmentally Friendly

Written by creatingyourspace on . Posted in News From Us

Green, green, green! Ever since the collective social conscience has begun to fully concur on the importance of environmentally friendly design, the word ‘green’ has been the ultimate buzzword in exterior and interior home design. Builders now show a strong preference for environmentally conscience materials, and tile is no exception. A favorite among these is ceramic tile. Not only does is it aesthetically pleasing, it can absolutely be incorporated into kitchen and bathroom design in a way that also helps ensure that our natural environment will remain beautiful for generations to come.

Ceramic tile boasts the fact that it is an excellent choice because it is ‘green’ from the beginning of its life all the way through completion of an interior design. Meaning, it is environmentally friendly from the mining process through final installation. This is due in part to the fact that the materials used are plentiful, and they are easy to mine and manufacture. In turn, this reduces fuel consumption and ensures that more precious resources aren’t consumed during the manufacturing process. Furthermore, many ceramic tiles feature recycled content which, as they say, ‘pays it forward’ when it comes to environmental impact.

Now, take into consideration that it can be expected to last at least 50 years! You want sustainability? Ceramic tile delivers to an impressive extent because it is a timeless design material that can be installed in arrangement that is classic and won’t ever look out of style. What about cleaning it, you ask? This is accomplished with ease using basic soap water. No need for caustic and toxic chemical cleaners to keep the tiles looking fabulous. 

If you’re initially shopping on your own, it’s easy to find environmentally-friendly ceramic tile because it will have a Green Squared label. Once you’re ready to get down to business, consult one of our experts and we’ll help you turn your vision into a reality!
