What are the Different Types of Tile?
Tile flooring is probably one of the most versatile flooring options available. Not only can you install them on your floors, but you can also install them on your walls, in showers, and outside. At Holloway Carpet One Floor & Home we have a wide selection of tile for you to choose from. We know choosing from tile can sometimes be confusing, so we’ve broken down the different types for you and their best uses.
Ceramic tile is made up of clay and minerals. The surfaces of the tiles are glazed, and they make great accents as well as insets. Ceramic tile is easy to clean and maintain, are very durable, and comes in a wide variety of styles and colors. They come in smooth or textured options, so depending if you have children you may want to consider a textured tile to avoid slips and falls.
Porcelain tiles are also made of clays and minerals but are fired at a much higher temperature to make it denser. Since porcelain has a higher density, it is more resistant to moisture making it ideal for bathrooms or laundry rooms.
Stone tile is a natural flooring option. They come in a variety of textures and colors that gives you a wide range to select from. You can install stone floors in kitchens, bathrooms, and mudrooms. Stone tiles have the ability to compliment a wide range of rustic and contemporary styles. No two tiles are alike, which gives you home character.
