Types of Tiles


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-inspired texture.






Tile Installation


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. Most tile that’s installed on walls is not suitable to be used on floors. One of the most exciting things about a tile backsplash is how easy it is to make them your own! Rather than just selecting one tile, you can create a design or pattern, add borders, or even use a couple of mosaics. Your backsplash doesn’t have to be simple unless you want it to be, and no matter what your design goals are, create something that reflects them with a custom tile backsplash.


Along with providing a way to customize the look of your kitchen or bathroom, tile also offers you the durability you need. These areas are exposed to high moisture as well as food splatters and spills that could be sticky, so having a material that is strong enough is an excellent investment. Plus, you can trust that tile will shield your walls without cracking or chipping.
