Create magic and mystique with beautiful tile floors.
Tile flooring is one of the oldest and most popular options for residential and commercial settings. It offers enough moisture and wear resistance for almost any home setting and is available in stylish options. Whether you need something simple or something intricate, there's a style of tile flooring for you.

The three most prevalent tile types are ceramic, porcelain, and stone. Ceramic tile works well in both residential and commercial situations since it’s a smart addition to walls, as well as floors. Ceramic is crafted from kiln-fired clay, which makes it extremely durable. It readily resists everyday scratches and is easy to wipe clean. Ceramic tile is favored by animal lovers for this reason: it’s also relatively budget friendly. However, ceramic is best reserved for indoor uses, as extreme weather isn’t its friend.
Porcelain tile is a close cousin of ceramic. It has similar origins and is also crafted from clay, but the final product is fired at a hotter setting for a denser result. Porcelain tile, unlike ceramic, can thus be used outdoors. It doesn’t crack under pressure and its textured surface is especially popular as bathroom flooring since it can prevent everyday slips and falls.
Stone tile is crafted from natural minerals and can be incorporated into different looks. Stones such as marble, granite, and slate are carved into slabs and tiles, which can either be polished or left in a rougher state. Each stone is unique, so this indoor/outdoor tile is preferred by those who want something one-of-a-kind.
Wood look flooring has gained popularity. Homeowners love the distinct look of hardwood flooring but having hardwood in the home can sometimes be a challenge. Wood look flooring has created a solution for that challenge, delivering authentic looking flooring that is also durable. Wood look tile is not a new flooring option, but because of advances in technology it looks more realistic than ever. Wood look tile flooring comes in different options like traditional tile sizes as well as plank options.
There are benefits to having wood look tile flooring installed in your home. To begin with, tile is a durable flooring option and when covered with the right glaze they can be resistant to scratching. Other benefits of wood look tile include moisture resistance as well as being easy to clean and maintain overtime. Wood look tile can look like assorted types of wood flooring, from traditional warm tones to trendy rustic weather worn looks. Like with most tiles, you can install wood look tile in places around your home such as kitchens, bathrooms, laundry rooms, entryways, and even basements.
Tile isn’t limited to floors; it can be installed on walls and backsplashes, among other places. Wall tile and backsplash tile are more petite than floor tile, but they are stylish and durable.
Ceramic, porcelain, and stone tile can be installed anywhere in the home. They can handle the moisture you'd expect in kitchens and bathrooms, and they can stand up to heavy foot traffic and other environmental factors as well. Porcelain tile can even be installed outdoors on patios and decks. For commercial or other high-traffic areas, there are ultra-durable tile options that are easy to maintain.
