What are the Different Types of Tile?
We carry several different types of tile including porcelain, ceramic, and stone options.
Porcelain and ceramic are made from the same materials but porcelain is different because it is denser and more resistant to moisture. Porcelain and ceramic are the two most common options used in both commercial and residential settings. What makes tile so popular is they are available in a wide variety of shapes, colors, sizes, styles, and patterns for you to choose from. We carry natural stone options, and a benefit of stone tile is each slab features a unique look and can be sealed to be stain proof and waterproof.
We also have other tile options including wall and backsplash tile. Wall or backsplash can be made from a combination of tile, glass and metal, to create a more dimensional look, and can make a long wall more visually appealing. You can install wall tile anywhere in your home, including a kitchen or bathroom.
Where Can Tile Be Installed?
Traditionally you will see tile installed and bathrooms and kitchens because of its moisture resistance and ability to withstand heat. Tile can be installed in more places around your home, as well as outside of your home as either a patio or walkway. Since tile can go on your walls, installing them anywhere in your home as an accent wall is an option. You can also install tile in finished basements, laundry rooms, and entryways to your home.
