Today, several tiles on the market will make a great addition to your home. Our selection of tile includes ceramic, porcelain, mosaic, stone, and large format tiles. Each comes with its pros and drawbacks. Some are also meant for more than just floors, so you can enjoy the look and durability of tile as a backsplash or custom shower. They all look great in homes but knowing what works best for your home is key in finding the right tile for you. Below we go into more detail on ceramic, porcelain, and stone tiles.
Ceramic: Made of natural clay and fired in a kiln this tile is both lightweight and durable making it a great choice for floors and backsplashes alike.
Porcelain: Also made of clay, porcelain is fired at a higher temperature making it extremely durable and water-resistant. Since porcelain tends to be heavier, we favor these tiles for flooring in rooms with lots of activity.
Stone: Made from slabs of natural stones, these tiles can be truly unique with their own veining, coloring, and texture. These tiles make great additions to both indoor and outdoor spaces thanks to their natural durability and water resistance.
Wood-look tile is the latest innovation in digital manufacturing that allows you to get the look of natural wood on a tile. This means you can enjoy the appearance of hardwood floors in rooms where you otherwise cannot such as kitchens, bathrooms, mudrooms, and more. These splash zones and moisture-prone areas are a nightmare for hardwood flooring as they can cause them to warp and buckle. Although tile is a top choice for these rooms, they don’t always meet the stylistic needs of every home. Thankfully for wood look tile you no longer have to sacrifice beauty for function.
Tile is a great choice for rooms like kitchen & bathrooms, where spills and moisture are more common in the home. Making sure you choose the right tile is just the first step to enjoying tile in your home, the next is installation. Though there are many types of tiles and ways to use them, we always recommended professional installation so you can get the most out of your tiles.
