Tiling is an age-old option for flooring, walls, showers, and more. And today, tile has been refined by modern innovation, making for thousands of options to satisfy virtually all of your needs. Not sure which tile will work best for your space? Here are some things to keep in mind as you shop for residential or commercial tile.
Tile is easily incorporated into all sorts of style schemes. Whether your tastes are classic or contemporary, we have a tile to meet your needs. While modern-day tile can be made from a variety of materials, most of our tile options are available in three main categories: ceramic, porcelain, or stone.
Porcelain: Made out of natural kiln-fired clay, porcelain tile can be glazed with unique patterns and styles, like marble-look and hardwood-look. Since porcelain tile is fired at a higher setting, it is resistant to heat, chipping, and water.
Ceramic: Wonderfully versatile for backsplashes, flooring, and wall decor, thanks to its lightweight nature, ceramic tile is kiln-fired and made from natural materials like clay and sand. It a budget-friendly option. Plus, thanks to its porous style, ceramic can help insulate and cool your home, making it an economical choice, as well.
Stone: Stone tile is made from natural rock such as granite, limestone, slate, and marble. This natural stone is incredibly durable if properly maintained, and it remains a timeless addition to any space while working wonders both indoors and outdoors.
The wood look tile trend is becoming popular across the board in commercial and residential settings. While these tiles may look like they are made from real hardwood, they are usually porcelain and ceramic. Some benefits of wood-look tile include:
Style: Get the realistic appearance of hickory, birch, maple, mahogany, and other popular wood species, as well as the textures to match the grains and knots. Just like hardwood, wood look tiles come in plank shapes and can even vary in width and length to give off a more realistic look.
Water-Resistant: Tile is much more water-resistant than real hardwoods, and this means you can install it in high-moisture areas like laundry rooms, bathrooms, and kitchens!
We recommend turning to our professionals for your tile installation as this process is not usually DIY-friendly. Tiles are normally dry laid first to make sure they are correctly sized to the room, cut if needed, and then adhered to the floor with tile cement, and then they are grouted. While the process of installing tile can be intimidating, once the grouting and grading are completed, the result is extremely easy to clean and maintain. Many types of tile resist stains, moisture, and heavy-duty wear.
