The sun, the sand, the brine, the salty air. Each of these things serve to make coastal living so desirable…
If you own a holiday home, a permanent getaway, or an investment property which is located in a coastal area, such as Bokarina or Coffs Harbour, you will have become very familiar with each of these beachy elements. However, under the intense, sultry thumb of the coastal elements, you may find your flooring becoming damaged, dirty, damp, or warped.
At Tile Wizards, we believe that you should be able to make the most of your coastal living situation. Our ranges of tiles will allow you to throw your doors open and bask in the warmth of the breezes and the crashing of the waves, without the fear of sand, humidity or consequential floor damage.
One of the main advantages of installing tiles in your coastal home is how easy they are to clean. The sticky beach air can foster the build-up of grit and grime, causing unsightly marks and stains. With water, and cleaning product (if necessary) you can remove almost any stain from a tile floor. Sprucing up a sandy home is as simple as sweeping or vacuuming the grit from the tiles. For outdoor areas, simply hose away the sand that appears in the wake of breezes and beach trips.
When installed correctly, tiles can be impervious to water damage, which makes cleaning indoors and outdoors with water both easy and effective. With regular cleaning, even decade old tiles can look as good as new. The easy to clean nature of tiles make it the perfect option for coastal investment properties. Rather than wasting your money and effort on meticulous cleaning or even replacement, you can make one investment which will ensure your property presents as a fresh beach haven for decades.
The beach life can be just as action packed as it can be relaxing. Your property must be built to endure the tumultuous weather of the coast, as well as the sandy and slippery comings and goings of holiday tenants or family members. If your coastal property’s flooring is not hardwearing, you may be facing years of maintenance, replacements, or else embracing unsightly flooring.
When it comes to durability, tiles are the best flooring option on the market. They are water resistant and easy to clean, which prevents the gradual degradation that affects other flooring options. Their hard surface is impervious to scratches, dints, and chips, and if installed correctly, they will never lift, warp, or shift, meaning your flooring will withstand all of the annual family holidays, seasonal storms, and general wear and tear to come.
A coastal property’s greatest strength is its role as a getaway! As such, it’s important that your property reflects the beauty of the environment it is situated within. In tiling your beach house, you not only ensure the longevity of your floors, but also their appeal. As they come in a variety of colours, styles, finishes, shapes, and textures, there is guaranteed to be a tile out there which can be seamlessly integrated within your home, in alignment to your personal tastes. No matter what look you hope to achieve, installation of the correct tiles can help you create your dream getaway.
There are so many things to love about coastal living. With tiles in your home, you will never see the summer breeze, sun, sand, or water as the enemy. At Tile Wizards, we stock a wide variety of tiles styles to suit the tastes and budgets of any developer or renovator.
