Tile Flooring Guide
Throughout history, tile has been gracing the floors and walls of homes and businesses. It remains prevalent to this day, proving that tile’s appeal goes well beyond fleeting trends. Tile has excellent staying power and is guaranteed to distinguish all your favorite spaces, making it a smart choice for your upcoming commercial or residential renovation project.
At Vision Floors and More in Lafayette, IN we carry an extensive inventory of both indoor and outdoor tile. Our onsite tile experts can help you pick out the perfect tile for your kitchen, bathroom, backsplash, or patio.
But in the meantime, let’s further explore the world of tile.
Types of Tile
Tile offers a multitude of options, and with so many different types to consider, it can be challenging to narrow it down. However, some things remain constant and today’s shoppers will encounter three major tile types: ceramic tile, porcelain tile, and stone tile. Here’s what you need to know.
Ceramic Tile | Fashioned from natural, kiln-fired clay, ceramic makes for a very sturdy tile that’s truly eclectic. Ceramic tile is always a good choice, as it works for spaces both indoors and outdoors.
Porcelain Tile | Porcelain is a type of ceramic that’s fired at a much hotter temperature. The end result is a tile that’s particularly dense and thick, making it a popular pick for outdoor décor, including patios, pool areas, and spas. It’s also an appropriate choice for indoor décor.
Stone Tile | Stone tile is perfectly made by nature, making it a shoe-in for outdoor spaces. But don’t discount these slate, granite, or marble marvels for your indoor spaces, either. Stone tile makes for wonderful and luxurious interior flooring.
Tile is inherently made to make a colorful and creative first impression. With its unique textures and shades, it’s easy to make your space your own. Tile can have a traditional appearance or something on the cutting edge: since it’s fully customizable, there are endless application options. Of course, tile is also extremely durable and is easy to clean and maintain.
