National Tile Day

National Tile Day is February 23. Tiles are typically finely crafted pieces of ceramic or stone but can be made from other materials as well. Tile flooring is typically seen in rooms of a home that are exposed to moisture, such as bathrooms and kitchens. Not only are tiles suitable for these rooms in your home, but they’re also excellent for high-traffic areas because of their durability. You can even use stone tiles outside of your home to enhance your patio space. If you’re a tile enthusiast, get excited about National Tile Day this February 23.

Tiles have been used on floors, walls, and roofs for hundreds upon hundreds of years. This staple in architecture and design is classic but also allows for unique creativity. Whether you prefer simple tile flooring or intricate designs, there’s something for everyone when it comes to tile.

Historians date the first use of tile back to ancient Egypt. At the time, the tile was used for decorative purposes. Ancient Egyptian tiles can be found on murals and mosaics. Blue brick tiles were also used to decorate homes. During the fourth millennium B.C., glazed brick tiles could be found in Mesopotamia. The famous Ishtar Gate in Babylon features glazed brick tiles. It is believed that the first use of ceramic tiles was in the Islamic empire where they were used as wall coverings. During the 1500s, ceramic tile art became a staple of Portuguese heritage and was used as a form of cultural expression.

The first National Tile Day was celebrated in 2017. The holiday was celebrated with the biggest international tile and stone show in North America. The show was created to draw attention to the importance and history of tiles in various forms of design and architecture.

Maybe you can’t make it to a tile event on February 23, but one way you can celebrate this holiday is by caring for the tile in your own home. Whether you have tile in your kitchen, bathroom, or entryway, you can have your tile cleaned and maintained by SunCoast Flooring Solutions.

You may think cleaning tile is easy, but if you have tile flooring you know just how difficult it can be to clean the grout between your tiles. Grout progressively gets dirtier and it can be hard to tell it is happening until you notice just how filthy it has become. This is because grout has pores that fill with dirt overtime. Once your flooring gets too dirty, no amount of ordinary mopping, scrubbing, or cleaning can reverse the unattractive appearance. Special techniques and products are required in order to restore the look of your floor.
