Tile Guide

If you need a floor that is both durable but also stylish, then consider tile flooring. You can install tile in almost every room of your home and even outside. There are no other flooring options that can match the versatility of tile. Tile comes in an array of styles and colors, and can be cut to create a design. Not only that, but tile comes in a variety of price ranges to help fit your budget.

Be sure to watch the video below to learn about all of your tile options:

Types of Tile

There are three main types of tile including ceramic, porcelain, and stone. Ceramic is popular for its various styles, as well as its vast options of designs and colors. You will usually see ceramic tile installed in kitchens and bathrooms as flooring. Ceramic is a lighter tile, so you can also install it on your walls as a backsplash.

Porcelain and stone tile are also other options. Porcelain tile is denser and more durable than ceramic tile, and is best installed in places that see a lot of activity like entryways and laundry rooms. You can also install porcelain as an outdoor patio. Stone is a natural option and is usually treated and sealed to protect against spills, stains, and scratches, so it will last a long time if properly maintained.

Tile can also be installed on walls and in shower stalls. Backsplash tile does more than just add a decorative focal point to your space, but it also protects your walls from possible damage. You can create a custom kitchen with wall tile, and you can also make your bathroom transform into a spa like retreat with shower tile.
