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  

Tile is constantly evolving and currently, there are tile options appropriate for just about anywhere. There are tiles made from glass and metal, there are mosaic tiles, and there are plank and square-shaped tiles, and that’s just for starters. Still, the majority of popular tile products are made out of ceramic, porcelain, or stone. 

Both ceramic and porcelain are made natural clays and minerals, which are then fired in the kiln. Ceramic tile is usually textured, so it provides great traction for bathroom floors. Porcelain tile tends to be denser, since it is fired at a higher heat. It’s considered fully water resistant. 

Do you prefer tile that’s really one-of-a-kind? Stone tile is made out of natural materials like marble, slate, and granite. Since no two rocks are exactly the same, your stone tile will boast unique beauty: both indoors and outdoors.

Benefits of Tile 

There are tile styles to fit every style scenario, whether one’s decorating preferences are traditional or more contemporary. Regardless, there’s a tile for every situation and space. With tile, it’s easy to create customized spaces, while not having to worry about the potential for water damage, scuffs, or scratches. Tile can last for generations if properly cared for, and care requirements are relatively simple.
