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.

Types of Tile

We offer three types of tile: porcelain, ceramic, and natural stone. Ceramic and porcelain are the two most popular options for flooring. At first glance, ceramic and tile are pretty similar, but porcelain is denser, and more slip and stain resistant. Porcelain can handle areas with a lot of moisture like bathrooms and laundry rooms. You can get both ceramic and porcelain tile in traditional looks as well as wood look.

Stone is a natural option and is usually treated and sealed to protect against spills, stains, and scratches, so it will last a long time if properly maintained. Stone that is treated and sealed will last for a long time and resists scratches and stains.

Where can Tile be Installed? 

One of the several advantages of tile flooring is all the places you can install it. Since tile can withstand moisture and heat, you can install it in places like your bathroom or laundry room. Tile is traditionally seen in kitchens because of its resistance to stains, and for how easy it is to clean if you drop something.

Tile can also be installed on your walls. Wall tile is limited to specific tiles that are lightweight, so they better adhere to your walls. Wall tile protects your walls from accidental food splatter and overexposure to humidity.

Ways to Use Tile

Tile is not limited to just flooring, it can be used in several different areas of your home. Many homeowners like to use tile as a backsplash in their kitchen or bathroom. Backsplash was originally used in kitchens to protect the walls from grease splatter. Now backsplash tile is used as an accessory in the kitchen or bathroom as a way to express personal style.

You can also use tile to create a custom shower in your bathroom. Porcelain tile is the best option for showers because it is resistant to heat and moisture. You can choose large format tiles and accent it with small mosaics. Custom tiles showers not only make your bathroom look unique, but they also help to increase the real estate value of your home.
