Tile Flooring Guide
Made to endure, tile lends itself seamlessly to all of your favorite spaces, whether that’s a poolside patio or a bathroom backsplash. A popular flooring medium since ancient times, tile continues to impress property owners with its sheer variation. Available in thousands upon thousands of style and material combinations, there are tiles that are perfect for every use. For this reason, tile floors can pop up just about anywhere: kitchens, bathrooms, outdoor living spaces, living rooms, even bedrooms.
Types of Tile
As more and more products are introduced to the market, tile offers up an infinite array of options. Today, as it was in the beginning, traditional tile materials like ceramic, stone, and porcelain remain the most popular, however.
Which tile is the right one for you? Here are a few major points to consider:
Ceramic tiles are made to last, while withstanding heavy foot traffic. Baked from natural clay, this tile can indefinitely perform.
Porcelain tiles are great for the outdoors, since they really tend to endure the elements well. These clay tiles are fired at the highest temperatures, for a result that’s even denser than ceramic tile.
Stone tiles are made by nature, using stones such as slate, marble, granite, and other types of stones for a tile that’s naturally suitable for the outdoors, but is also a great addition indoors.
