When choosing your flooring, it’s a good idea to consider the type of tile flooring before installing it. We offer three common types, ceramic, porcelain, and natural stone tile.
This tile is excellent for kitchen backsplashes and interior walls. Because it is made from recycled materials like clay and is kiln-fired at a lower temperature, this tile is considered lightweight compared to the other types. Ceramic helps insulate walls and floors, which can lower utility costs.
Even though this tile is made from the same materials as ceramic, porcelain is known for its durability and non-porous benefits, because it is kiln-fired at a higher temperature. Porcelain is resistant to heat and heavy traffic, making it the right choice in areas near ovens, fireplaces, and entryways.
Natural stone offers a classic look that adds a touch of luxury to any space. Stone materials include marble, granite, slate, and travertine. Natural stone tiles are heavy and durable, so you can have the installed inside and outside of your home.
In general, tile flooring can be installed just about anywhere, including outdoor spaces. Tile is incredibly easy to clean and design, meaning you can choose a custom look for your space. Not sure which tile is right for you? Here are some pro tips:
