Which Type of Tile Should I Choose?
There are several types of tile on today’s market:
- Porcelain is a little bit expensive but more durable than ceramic and can be installed in high-traffic areas. It’s rated for indoor and outdoor use. Porcelain tile resists water and is heat resistant. It can withstand heavy foot traffic and changing weather conditions and won’t crack. Porcelain is typically installed in areas with moisture and features a slip-resistant surface for your protection and peace of mind.
- Ceramic tile is the most budget-friendly option and is commonly seen installed on kitchen and bathroom floors. There are multiple sizes, shapes, colors, and patterns to choose from, so no design is impossible! Ceramic tile resists water and heat and can support moderate foot traffic. Ceramic tile is ideal for indoor settings and not recommended for outdoor use
- Stone tiles are the priciest option and can be installed both inside and outside. If you are looking for higher-end tile, then consider our stone collection. Stone tiles are quarried and come in slabs. Since no slab is quarried from the same location, each stone tile features a pattern that is unique. Stone flooring is long-lasting and beautiful.
Tile that Looks Like Wood
Ceramic and porcelain tiles are used to create wood-look tiles. They feature the same textures and details as hardwood like grain and knots. You can install wood-look tile anywhere in your home without worry.
Porcelain tiles are a popular option, allowing you to install wood-look flooring in places like your kitchen, bathroom, laundry room, and mudroom. Wood-look tiles can be cleaned the same way you clean any type of tile and is resistant to moisture and heat.
Tile for Your Walls
Tiles are not just limited to your floors: certain tiles can be installed on walls as well. These tiles are smaller and lighter in weight and come in different material options. Wall backsplash can be made from a combination of tile, glass, and metal, and break up boring, mundane walls.
Wall tiles are thinner because strength and durability against foot traffic are not an issue. For most kitchen and bathroom settings, ceramic is appropriate given its design versatility. In fact, stylish mosaic tiles are often preferred for beautiful designs. If you want a custom tiles shower, a waterproof porcelain option that absorbs less than 0.5% moisture is the best choice.
