Tiles are a “green” product since they are made with natural materials like clay and sand. Tiles are not only durable and long lasting, but they are also easy to clean and are allergy friendly.
Below, Jim Aaron explains how to choose the perfect tile for your home.
Types of Tile Options
We have three main tile options to choose from including: ceramic, porcelain, and stone.
Porcelain and ceramic tiles are common in both homes and even businesses. They are made from the same materials such as clay and sand, but porcelain is different because it is classified by how dense it is compared to ceramic. These tiles come in an array of colors, styles, and patterns to choose from. Ceramic is a light-weight option, and is also budget friendly. Since porcelain tile is denser than ceramic it can resist water and heat better. We also have natural stone tile. Because stone is quarried from different locations, no two slabs are alike which means you can have a truly custom floor.
Other types of tiles include wall and backsplash tile which can include materials such as glass, mosaic, and sometimes even metal. Wall and backsplash tile is different from floor tile because it is more absorbent, and usually comes in smaller tiles to create unique designs.
When it comes to choosing a new tile option, knowing the room you want to install tile in can help you determine the type of tile you will need. Most any tile works well for your walls, but when it comes to floor tile you’ll definitely want a tile that is rated for moisture and wear resistance. If you choose to install tile outside, choose porcelain or stone because of their water resistance abilities and resistance to heat.
