Here are some things to consider as you shop for residential or commercial tile.


The Different Tile Types in Wilmington, NC

Whether your tastes are classic or contemporary, we have a tile to meet your needs. While modern-day tile can be made from various natural materials, most of our tile options are available in three main categories: ceramic, porcelain, or stone.



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.



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. Not only is ceramic a budget-friendly option, but thanks to its porous style, ceramic can help insulate and cool your home, making it an economical choice.



Stone tile is made from natural rocks 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 indoors and outdoors.


Get The Look of Hardwood with Tile

If you want the look of natural hardwoods, wood-look tile is an excellent alternative! Get the look of real hardwood with the benefits of tile:


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.


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!



Get Inspired: Backsplash Tile Trends for Your Kitchen & Bathroom

Today, tile comes in hundreds of design options to match virtually any kitchen or bathroom design. Here are some popular tile backsplash trends to consider for your space:


Subway Tile

Subway tile remains a timeless choice for backsplashes. Its classic rectangular shape and clean lines complement a variety of design styles, from traditional to contemporary.


Mosaic Patterns

Mosaic tiles allow for creative expression with intricate patterns and designs. Whether made from glass, ceramic, or natural stone, mosaic backsplashes add visual interest and texture to any space.


Large Format Tiles

Oversized tiles, such as 12x24 inches or larger, are increasingly popular for backsplashes. These large-format tiles create a sleek and modern look with fewer grout lines, making the space feel more expansive.


Marble and Natural Stone

Marble and natural stone tiles lend a timeless elegance to backsplashes. Whether in marble or granite, these natural materials add warmth and character to the space.


Tile Flooring Installations

Tile installations are not typically DIY-friendly. For this reason, we always suggest working with our flooring professionals, who can offer the best custom tile layouts, backsplashes, and more! 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. Once the grouting and grading are complete, the result is extremely easy to clean and maintain.

FAQs About Tile Flooring in Wilmington, NC

Q: How should I care for my tile floors?

A: Regular sweeping and occasional mopping with a mild detergent and water solution help keep your tile floors clean. Grout lines may require periodic sealing to prevent staining and discoloration. Learn more in our Tile Floor Care Guide.


Q: Is tile flooring suitable for high-traffic areas?

A: Absolutely! Tile flooring like ceramic, porcelain, and natural stone, is highly durable and well-suited for high-traffic areas such as entryways, kitchens, and hallways.


Q: Can tile be installed outdoors?

A: Yes, certain types of tile, such as porcelain and natural stone, are suitable for outdoor applications like patios, walkways, and pool decks. It's important to choose tiles specifically rated for outdoor use and to ensure proper installation to withstand exposure to the elements.


Q: Are all tiles water-resistant?

A: While many types of tile, such as ceramic and porcelain, are inherently water-resistant, not all tiles are suitable for wet areas like showers and tub surrounds. We recommend choosing tiles designed for your intended space to prevent water damage.


Q: How do I choose the right grout color for my tile?

A: The grout color can significantly impact the overall look of your tile installation. If you want a more seamless look, choose a grout color that matches your tile. Alternatively, contrasting grout can highlight the tile pattern and add visual interest to the space. It's recommended to test different grout colors before making a final decision.


Q: Can I install tile over my existing floors?

A: In many cases, tile can be installed over existing flooring surfaces such as vinyl, laminate, or hardwood, as long as the subfloor is stable, clean, and level. However, it's essential to follow manufacturer recommendations. Before installation, our professionals will inspect your space to ensure proper installation and compatibility with the existing flooring.
