In terms of application versatility, durability, and installation simplicity, thin brick tiles are really no different than other ceramic tiles, which is precisely why they’re considered part of the ceramic tile family in the first place. However, there are still plenty of reasons why you should consider choosing thin brick over ceramic the next time you’re thinking of taking on a new renovation project in your home.
First and foremost, thin brick tiles offer a lot more character and charm than your average ceramic tiles, and if you’re looking for an earthy, rustic, or industrial feel to really make your décor pop, you can’t go wrong with the natural, raw elements thin brick has to offer. Furthermore, ceramic is one of the most common, basic materials used in most kitchens and bathrooms today, which means almost everyone has it, but thin brick’s uniqueness on the other hand, will always impress with ease no matter who’s coming to visit.
In addition to the fact that brick is one of the most inexpensive flooring options available, thin brick is actually greener and much easier to install. Ceramic on the other hand, is often much more expensive, with specialty materials capable of costing as much as $20 per piece – not to mention they are more complicated to install, which further increases your final costs. Add that to the fact that their durability and longevity are virtually the same, and it’s simply no contest.
Most of the time when you see ceramic, it’s almost always inside. Typically you’d find it as backsplash in a kitchen, flooring in a laundry room, or even lining the walls of a shower – but in virtually all cases, it’s only indoors. On the other hand, thin brick is the perfect material for both indoor and outdoor renovation projects, and can easily enhance the appearance of any kitchen, bathroom, mudroom, sunroom, bedroom, patio, sidewalk, driveway, and more. Thin brick can be water-sealed, just like ceramic, and is exceptionally durable, making it the ideal tile for any indoor or outdoor project you may be planning.
