Tile Flooring Guide

Tile floors and walls have been adorning homes and public spaces for centuries, and tile continues gracing our favorite gathering spots today. Adding color, texture, and an artistic touch to the spaces where we live and work, tile is all about endless possibilities. It’s also highly durable, and can incorporate into any indoor or outdoor décor scheme. All being said, it’s no wonder that tile has been a flooring favorite for many generations.

Wondering where to begin? Here’s some helpful information to get you started down the right path:

Types of Tile

Tile is constantly evolving, with new products regularly being introduced to consumers. Some things, however, remain unchanged: ceramic, stone, and porcelain continue to be the most prevalent tile materials.

Which type of tile will work best in your home? Here are some things to consider:

Ceramic tiles are made to last for generations. Fired from natural clays, they can stand strong against heavy foot traffic.

Porcelain tiles are a great choice for patios, poolside, and other outdoor spaces. Like ceramic, porcelain tile is made from clay: the difference is that they’re fired at a higher temperature, resulting in a denser tile.

Stone tiles are made by Mother Nature, making them a smart choice for outdoor spaces, but they’re also beautiful accents for indoor spaces like entryways and hearths. Slate, granite, and marble are just a few of the stone varieties typically used to make tile.
