Where Can Tile Be Installed?
Since tile is inherently durable and resistant to moisture, it can be installed anywhere in your home. Ceramic and porcelain are especially popular in kitchens, bathrooms, and laundry rooms, but they also can be installed in living rooms and basements. Porcelain tile is even durable enough for outdoor settings such as patios or walkways.
In addition, tile can be installed on walls and backsplashes, and it can be used to create custom showers and baths. For the most part, tile that is installed on walls is not suitable to be used on floors.
Types of Tile
There are three main types of tile: ceramic, porcelain, and stone. Porcelain and ceramic tiles are the most common residential tile options. Ceramic and porcelain are made of the same materials, but porcelain is denser. Since porcelain is dense, it can resist moisture and is a practical option for outdoor patios. Both ceramic and porcelain are available in traditional tile looks and a wide array of vibrant or neutral colors, as well as wood and stone looks. We also offer a high-end stone collection. No two slabs are quarried from the same location, so the tiles all feature their own variations. Stone is usually treated and sealed to protect against spills, stains, and scratches, so it will last a long time if properly maintained.
