Barb-Lin Carpet One Floor & Home is your local flooring provider. Tile is a versatile product due to its many style and application options. Tile can be installed inside, on your walls and floors, and even outside on a patio. Our flooring professionals are here to help you choose the perfect tile options for your next home project.
Below, Jim Aaron explains how to choose the perfect tile for your home.
Tile Flooring Options
We have three main tile options to choose from including: ceramic, porcelain, and stone.
When homeowners think tile, they usually lump porcelain and ceramic together. Although they are similar when it comes to style options and colors, they are structurally different. Ceramic is a mixture of clay and sand, and is a light weight tile. Porcelain is denser than ceramic. This meaning, porcelain can resist moisture and is durable enough to handle heavy foot traffic.
Stone and terracotta are also two other tile options. Both have natural features and are resistant to heat and moisture. Stone is quarried from different locations so no two slabs look alike.
Where Can Tile Be Installed?
Depending on the type of tile you choose, tile can be installed almost anywhere inside and outside of your home. However, when it comes to tile backsplashes, you want to choose either a ceramic option or a tile that is specifically meant for walls.
Tiles are usually difficult to install, but fortunately we have a team of skilled installers who can handle any and every project. We will work with you to choose the right grouts and glazes, and we’ll ensure the end result will be exactly what you envisioned.
