If you’re considering tile flooring for your next renovation project, here’s what you ought to know.


Best Types of Tiles


Which tile will work best for your home or business? Most tile products are made using ceramic, porcelain, or stone.

Made from slabs of organic clay that’s fired in a kiln, porcelain and ceramic tile lend artisan touches, whether glazed or left natural. Stone tile is also extremely popular and adds incredible value.

  • Stone tiles carved from natural minerals like granite, slate, or marble. They’re ideal for outdoor fire pits, patios, pool areas, and walkways. It’s important to remember that many stone types need to be pre-treated for best stain and water resistance.
  • Ceramic tile is one of the reigning favorites for the bathtub or the shower area. It’s easy to customize and colorful, yet efficient and affordable. Ceramic tile is also our top choice for an accent wall or backsplash installation.
  • Porcelain tiles are another shower favorite. Renowned for its formidable water resistance, porcelain can be found in a wide range of trendy colors and textures.

There are even tiles made to capture the textures of leather, fabric, and hardwood.


Where Can I Install Tile?

If chosen with care, tile flooring can be added to any indoor or outdoor space.

Tile is inherently moisture-resistant: most are 100% waterproof. This means tile can be used everywhere, even:


  • Patios
  • Hallways
  • Bathrooms
  • Kitchens
  • Laundry Rooms
  • Entryways
  • Mudrooms
  • Pool Areas
  • Spas
  • Backsplashes
  • Accent Walls


Tile for Your Walls

If your walls fail to “wow,” it’s time to consider tile.

Always creative and ever enduring, a tile backsplash can be customized for your home’s most vulnerable spots. When new cabinets and appliances aren’t always within reach, a tile backsplash is an affordable way to update your kitchen or bathroom.

Tile backsplashes add incredible visuals and texture. They’re incredibly efficient at protecting the vulnerable spots above your kitchen range, around sinks, and around your shower or tub. They’re also easy to clean.

Whether you want to follow a pattern that is square, rectangular, or round, tile gives you the opportunity to show off your creativity. 

Tile for the Kitchen & Bath

Tile is a highly preferred floor type because of its ability to resist moisture.

Tile is the perfect floor for the bathroom, as well as most kitchens. A tile floor stands up well to traffic. It does not get scuffed or scratched easily. Accidents will happen, but your tile floor won’t dent or absorb stains quickly. It's wonderful for the shower as well.

Keeping the tile floor clean is easy, sweep up to prevent dust from settling into the cracks, and mop occasionally to ensure the tile continues to shine for years to come.


Can I Install My Own Tile Floor?


It’s possible, sure- but it’s not always smart!
