Close your eyes and think about what you want to get out of your home. Take a walk through your home in your head and imagine what it looks like, how it feels, and how it functions. If your first thought brought you inside to a room with moderate levels of traffic and a finished tile accent wall, ceramic could be the tile for you. Available in a broad variety of colors, sizes, and shapes, ceramic tile is a versatile floor that can be used on floors, walls, and backsplashes.
Bring your dreams to life with porcelain tile. Porcelain is ideal for you if you closed your eyes and imagined a high traffic walkway covered in tile. Second to ceramic in popularity, porcelain is more durable and resists heat and moisture well. Porcelain has proven itself for many years, as it is easy to clean and does not crack under pressure often. The coating of porcelain tile can be glossy or flat, and porcelain tile can also be textured. Keep in mind when you choose your tile that you will want something with more texture if it is underfoot so that it is not slippery.
Bathrooms are commonly covered in stone tile and give guests the impression of luxury. When thinking about your bathrooms or kitchens, or even your outdoor space, if you imagine extravagance and relaxation, stone could be on your mind. Stone tiles are popular for outdoor walkways and comforting bathrooms. They can also enhance spaces to make them more modern with clean lines. It is crucial that you have stone tiles sealed for stain and moisture resistance.
