What tile flooring will add to your home

Stunning designs, affordability, durability, waterproof capabilities, and easy care are just some of the reasons you'll decide to go with tile flooring. In addition, tile floors look as good in the living room as in the kitchen.

However, they all have different strength and absorption levels. So, be sure to get the right one for your project because it impacts aesthetics and performance.

Porcelain: great for heavy foot trafficked floors

Porcelain is a type of ceramic tile with a composition of clay, sand, and glass and fired at higher temperatures. This makes it heavier, denser, and waterproof whether or not it's glazed. As a result, it's ideal for indoor or outdoor use. Porcelain tile is as beautiful as it is functional. It is through-body, meaning that the dye goes all the way through the bisque instead of the color only in the glaze. This makes chips, scratches, and other imperfections well hidden! It's also a large format, and the trend is for tiles to get bigger and bigger. Available in countless colors and patterns, it can also be made to look like anything, including fabric and leather. However, porcelain is often the preferred choice for wood or stone look-alikes.

Many types of ceramic tile

  • The 4 X 4 squares are probably the most well-known. They are thinner but strong and waterproof when glazed. So, you'll often see them indoors on floors, walls, backsplashes, fireplace surround, etc.
  • Mosaics are tiny, pebble-like pieces that are often glass-coated. These are robust, durable, and mold/mildew resistant. Mosaics are trending for bathroom tile flooring for style and size.
  • Terracotta bricks have moved from the outdoors to the indoors! The trend toward organic looks, earthy color palettes, and rustic design. These are highly durable but will need periodic sealing to make cleaning easier.
  • Subway tiles are the formerly white rectangles now available in various shapes and sizes. They are also available in an extensive color palette. They are great for backsplashes and can be used on indoor low-traffic floors.
