Tile Guide

Tile was built with durability in mind. Today, tile continues to be one of the most durable materials. It also remains a large part of the flooring industry thanks to its ability to adapt to many styles. Décor, linens and other items can be changed to update rooms, with tile not needing replacement. Tile can be installed virtually everywhere in your home, and even outside. It can be used as backsplash, flooring, and as an accent wall in rooms where you are looking to add a centerpiece.

We have the flooring experts here to help you choose the perfect tile flooring for your next project. Whether it is a small project or large, we are dedicated to providing an experience you won’t forget.

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

The majority of tile is made in ceramic, porcelain, and stone types which range in price, style, color, shape, and size. What tile is best for your home? Ceramic tile is the most popular of the three, with many budget-friendly options. Ceramic tiles are also sturdy, making them ideal for busy homes and areas that are used often. Porcelain tiles are the next most popular and are denser than ceramic tiles. Because of their density, they are even more durable than ceramic tiles. Stone tiles are made from natural stone materials, like granite and marble. These stones are porous, meaning that they have to be treated to be water resistant. Stone is popular for adding a luxurious vibe to any design.

Where Can Tile Be Installed?

Because tile is so versatile, it can be installed nearly anywhere in your home. Ceramic, porcelain, and stone are all popular in bathrooms, kitchens, and laundry rooms. Backsplashes and shower walls can be covered in tile to create an accent. Porcelain and stone tiles can both be used indoors and outdoors, and are durable enough to endure heavy traffic and weather.
