About Tile

Tile has been used to decorate homes and public gathering places for many centuries, and its appeal has stayed constant in these modern times. Today, tile is a popular flooring for residential and commercial settings, often appearing in bathrooms, kitchens, and on patios. It’s easy to understand why: tile forms a sturdy barrier against moisture, protecting your subfloor and walls while offering impressive versatility. A tile floor is a great way to make a bold statement, and there is tile to suit every need and taste.

Tile’s attributes aren’t just for floors. Tile is a smart choice for your bathroom wall, your kitchen backsplash, and even on outdoor seating areas. There are even different tile types intended for different destinations. For example, floor tile is denser to accommodate foot traffic, while wall and backsplashes are smaller and often have more visual detail.

Expert Advice - Choose the Perfect Tile

Join our very own Jim Aaron, VP of Merchandising for Carpet One Floor & Home, for some information on the three basic types of tile flooring: ceramic, porcelain, and stone.

Where Can Tile Be Installed?

One of the reasons tile flooring is so beloved is due to its amazing versatility. Since it is inherently resistant to heat and moisture, stone tile can be installed anywhere. Ceramic, stone, and porcelain can be used in kitchens, baths, and laundry rooms, but they also do nicely in finished basements and in living rooms. Porcelain especially is a popular choice in commercial environments, since it can handle heavy wear and is easy to clean.

Tile backsplashes are a popular way that you can personalize your shower or bathroom. Adorning smaller spaces with glass or mosaic decorative tile can really distinguish those spaces by adding style that reflects your unique tastes.

Our seasoned tile experts will introduce you to a tile that’s geared especially to your style preferences, budget, and décor scheme.

Types of Tile

Today’s shoppers will discover thousands of tile choices for their consideration, with three major tile types available on the current market: ceramic, porcelain, and stone. Much of the tile you’ll encounter is crafted using ceramic and stone. Ceramic tile and porcelain tile are popular choices in the kitchen or bath. While both types are crafted using natural clay and minerals, porcelain tiles is fired at higher temperatures, making it thick and dense. Porcelain is best for places with heavy moisture, making it a popular choice for outdoor spots. Ceramic and porcelain tiles are sold in both traditional variations, as well as textures and patterns that mimic stone or wood.

Natural stone tile is crafted real stone, including marble or travertine, resulting in a one-of-a-kind looks. Since stone is naturally resistant to scratches and denting, it can last indefinitely if maintained.
