Tile is a long-lasting, durable flooring option with the ability to adapt to many styles. It’s available in a wide range of tile colors, patterns, textures, shapes, and materials. It can be installed virtually anywhere in your home, and even outside. At Carpet One Floor & Home of New Bern, we bring you the best tile selection for you and your home. Whether it is a small project or larger commercial update, we are dedicated to providing an experience you won’t forget.
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 space? Ceramic tile and porcelain floor tiles are common in kitchens and bathrooms. They’re both made from mixing and firing natural materials like clay, sand, and water. Porcelain tile is fired at a much higher temperature for added resilience. Stone tiles are made using natural stone materials, like granite and marble. Stone floors often need to be sealed to lock out stains and moisture. Best of all, no two tiles are exactly alike, so you can have a completely custom floor.
Ceramic Tile: Made using natural clays, which are then glazed and fired, ceramic tile is dense and sturdy. Ceramic tile can hold its own against scratches and stains, and can be wiped clean.
Porcelain Tile: Porcelain tile is similar to ceramic tile, but is fired at a much higher temperature for added resilience. Porcelain tile is considered 100% water resistant, so it works well in bathrooms, in spas, or as kitchen backsplash.
Stone Tile: Stone tile is naturally perfected by Mother Nature. Natural substances such as granite or slate are carved into truly enduring tile, which offer unique beauty and hardness to all types of settings. Best of all, no two tiles are exactly alike!
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. Mosaics are great for backsplashes, borders, and accent walls. We also offer outdoor-grade tile options, which can endure freeze-thaw cycles and heavy moisture.
