Why choose tile?

Depending on the type of tile you choose (ceramic, porcelain, or variations of natural stone), tile is completely waterproof. It is also extremely durable and can resist scratches, making it ideal for areas with heavy traffic or commercial uses. It's beautiful in bathrooms and kitchens, although you'll surely love it anywhere! And it's a very versatile flooring solution, as well. Whether you choose marble tile, slate, concrete, ceramic, or wood look, you can recreate any look in any space.

Types of tile

Ceramic tile is made from clay that has been formed and then heated under extreme pressure. There are two main types:

  • Porcelain is a ceramic material that contains feldspar crystal, which, when heated under extreme pressure, gives it glass-like characteristics.
  • Non-porcelain ceramic tile is the traditional variety made from any combination of minerals that include white, red, and brown clay.

Stone tile encompasses many different natural stone materials, including marble tile. Because stone naturally varies in composition, each type of stone tile has different practical uses and different care and maintenance requirements.
