Your Guide to Tile Flooring
Crafted from a heating and cooling process using kiln-fired clay, ceramic is one of the most popular tile products for both flooring and backsplash designs. While most ceramics have a glossy, glazed finish, there is also non-glaze tile flooring that contains a pattern that helps prevent slippage underfoot. While most ceramic flooring tiles can be used as a backsplash, tile that has intentionally been created for walls cannot typically be installed on the floor.
Porcelain is created using a similar method as ceramic, but it's kiln-fired clay requires a longer heating period. As a result, the finish is denser and more durable than its ceramic equivalent. Porcelain tiles can typically be used both indoors and outdoors, which makes the product much more adaptable. Additionally, finer clays are typically used in the composition of this beautiful tile product.
Stone tile is one of the best options for outdoor flooring as it can withstand intensive natural elements. Our stone tile selection is perfect if you are looking for a more natural or rustic design theme. Marble, travertine, slate, and granite are just a few of the raw materials that are used to make our stone tile.
Wood-look tile is an increasingly popular, contemporary style that is created with either ceramic or porcelain materials. Homeowners can now enjoy any species of wood in the design of wood-look tile with the stability and moisture-resistance of a tile floor. Never fear warping, staining, or damage that can affect hardwood when you invest in these stunning tile selections. From birch to oak and mahogany shades, wood-look tile is a great hardwood alternative for bathrooms, kitchens, basements, or any room in your home.
Tile’s Easy Maintenance
For homeowners who don't have much time to clean, tile flooring is the ideal option for you. It doesn’t require vacuuming or intensive cleaning. It can simply be cleaned with regular sweeping and mopping. Use a mild detergent on your tile and cleaning materials like rags or mops rather than a sponge, which can dull the glaze on your tile or cause streaking.
To avoid cloudy tiles, be sure to sweep up any sand or debris as necessary. Tile flooring is dirt-resistant, but you should always remove any residue promptly. Be sure to use a non-abrasive cleaning solution and periodically clean the grout using a simple cleaning solutions such as baking soda and water.
