Tile flooring is easily one of the most versatile options. If you decide tile isn’t your choice for flooring, you may consider it as a backsplash in your kitchen, or for your shower. Not only that though, tile is a great way to add an extra pop of color or focal point in a room by creating an accent wall.
Types of Tile
When it comes to choose tile we offer three main options including ceramic, porcelain, and stone tiles.
Two of the more common tiles you’ll see in homes are porcelain and ceramic. Both are made from the same materials, but porcelain is classified different from ceramic because it is denser and resistant to heat and moisture. Ceramic options are light-weight and budget-friendly and available in an assortment of colors, styles, shapes, sizes and more.
Porcelain and ceramic tiles are unique because they can be installed in different places around your home. Porcelain tile can be used inside and outside, and ceramic can be used on walls and floors. Stone tile is a unique flooring option. Because slabs are quarried from different locations, no two tiles look the same. When properly sealed stone tiles are waterproof and stain resistant.
Where can you Install Tile?
Besides all the options for tile, its greatest purpose is for flooring. Tile provides a natural and timeless look to your home. Most homeowners use tile floors in kitchen and bathrooms. However, tile is also a great flooring option in sun rooms, mudrooms, and in enclosed porches. Its durability and patterns makes it a standout among other floors, and not to mention, is easy maintenance.
Being one of the most durable floors available means that tile is water, stain, and scuff resistant. You are able to live on a tile floor and not have to worry about wearing or discoloration, which is why tile works well in the high traffic areas such as bathrooms. Additionally, cleaning is a breeze. Vacuuming, mopping, and sweeping can all be done on tile floors with ease.
One thing to keep in mind is to always get your stone floors sealed for protection against cracking.
