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 tile's biggest advantages is its versatility. Tile, because it is durable and wear resistant, can be installed virtually anywhere in the home. It is especially popular as flooring in kitchens and bathrooms because it offers reliable moisture resistance. You won't have to worry about spills and stains with tile flooring.

At the same time, tile is available in so many different looks, so no design is considered off limits when you choose floor tile. Even if you prefer to add natural looks to your home, you can choose something like wood look tile.

That said, tile isn't only a popular flooring choice. It can also be installed on walls and backsplashes. Typically, wall tile and backsplash tile options are smaller and less durable than floor tile, but they are definitely more design-focused. In fact, you can choose from a variety of glass tiles and mosaic tiles for your wall or backsplash.

Types of Tile

With new tile products being added to the market on the regular, some things remain unchanged. Both now and a century ago, ceramic, porcelain, and stone remain the most popular types of tile.

What type of tile should you choose? Well, that would depend on your functional needs, as well as your tastes. Let’s take a closer look at the different tile types”

Sculpted from naturally-sourced clays and then kiln-fired, ceramic tile is a trustworthy tile choice that’s extremely sturdy. That means this tile truly fares great both indoors and outdoors.

Another natural clay product, porcelain tile is fired at a higher temperature. Porcelain tile is even sturdier than ceramic, making it a dense product that works wonderfully by the pool, as well as in your bathroom suite.

Using nature’s strongest substances, stone tile is naturally compatible with fluctuations in weather and climate. This tile uses natural materials like granite, slate, and marble to create everything from outdoor walkways, to indoor entryways and fireplaces.
