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.

Benefits of Tile

Tile has a lot to offer us, whether you prefer a classical or a contemporary theme. Tile can readily be used to create a customized look, as there are endless combinations of colors, materials, textures, and patterns. Additionally, tile is relatively easy to keep clean, and when it does need repairs, tiles can be replaced on an individual basis for a simpler solution.

Types of Tile

Tile is all about limitless possibilities and these days, new tile are appearing on shelves with regularity. Tile can be made using all types of materials, including glass, metal, and mosaic, however the majority of tile products are made using either ceramic, porcelain, or stone. All of these tile options are renowned for their durability. That being said, there are some important distinctions to keep in mind.

Both made from clay and minerals, ceramic and porcelain tiles are finished in a kiln. Ceramic tile is often textured, making it a great option for bathrooms and other areas where traction is desired. Porcelain tile is fired hotter, for a denser and thicker tile that’s completely water resistant.

For those who prefer something truly unique, stone tile is made from natural stones such as quartz, granite, and marble – and no two stones are exactly alike. Stone is a favored medium for outdoor spaces, as well as around hearths, in residential foyers, kitchens, and bathrooms.
