Known to last for decades – even centuries – tile is considered by many to be the ultimate in flooring endurance. Going far beyond fleeting styles and trends, tile is timeless while keeping a modern edge. Cherished by generations of homeowners, tile is renowned for its venerable staying power and its ability to merge seamlessly into your favourite gathering spots, both indoors and outdoors.
At Valley Carpet One Floor & Home, we carry an impressive inventory of both indoor and outdoor tile. Are you considering adding new tile to your home, or to your place of business?

Tile comes in three main categories, ceramic, porcelain, and natural stone. What type of tile should you choose? That depends on your functional needs, as well as your tastes. Both ceramic and porcelain tiles are sculpted from naturally-sourced clays and then kiln-fired. Ceramic tile is a trustworthy choice that’s light-weight and versatile. It is commonly used for both walls and flooring in residential spaces. Most ceramic tiles are resistant to moisture and heat, and come in a variety of different styles. For added looks, ceramic tiles can be layered with a glaze. Glaze can add shine and colour to the surface in addition to protecting the surface against stains and scratches.
Another natural clay product, porcelain tile is fired at a higher temperature than ceramic. This makes it more waterproof and durable. Porcelain floor tiles are great for both residential and commercial settings, and they’re also graded for outdoor settings in some cases. These tiles come in waterproof options and are resistant to heat and wear. As a result, porcelain tiles will stand up to changing weather conditions. Many porcelain tiles feature a texture surface to make them slip-resistant and to give you peace of mind.
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.
Have you been thinking about updating the old flooring in your home to be more on trend? Wood look tile is one of the hottest flooring trends today. Wood look tile can replicate the warm appearance of hardwood with the same textures and grain patterns. It is less expensive to produce compared to hardwood and may end up costing you less than you think. Tile is one of the most durable flooring options available. For everyday wear and tear, tile hands down beats hardwood. Since tile is resistant to moisture and humidity, it is perfect for areas of your home like bathrooms, kitchens, mudrooms, and even basements!
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 don’t have to worry about spills and stains with tile flooring. At the same time, tile is available in many different styles, so no design is considered off limits when you choose tiling. Even if you prefer to add natural looks to your home, you can choose something like wood look tile.
We also offer tiling and tile installations for walls, custom showers, backsplashes, bath surrounds, fireplace surrounds, and beyond. 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.
Tile is a classic and timeless flooring choice for your kitchen and bathroom thanks to its durability and water-repellent qualities. We also have heated tile floors, along with wall tiles, custom showers, backsplashes, and design services. Our waterproof tile floors often have special glazes to add slip-resistance for improved safety. We also have heated flooring systems, which not only optimize energy-efficiency, but also give your home a cozy touch. Additionally, you’ll find durable tiles that are extra crack and stain-resistant at our showroom.
Our experts can help you design your kitchen and bath tile layout, whether you want an intricate, mosaic border, accent wall, or custom shower. We specialize in bringing you modern, functional designs that are affordable and performance-driven. Our team will carefully listen to your tile ideas and then help you make your vision a reality.
Backsplashes are a popular feature in kitchen and bath spaces because they look beautiful and they protect your walls. The right backsplash can provide decorative depth and detail to your room. It will also prevent damage to the walls from steam, water, stains, and appliances. Not to mention, backsplashes are usually an affordable and easy update to your home. We have a top selection of small tiles and mosaics in a variety of colours, textures, patterns, and shapes. Our brands include Ceramica Uno®, Tierra Sol®, and Olympia®.
