There are three main types of tiles – ceramic, porcelain, and natural stone. Each type of tile has its pros and cons.
Ceramic – the most common type of tile, ceramic is made of natural clay that is then fired in a kiln and often glazed. Ceramic is durable, lightweight, and easy to clean.
Porcelain – Like ceramic, porcelain is made of natural clay, but is fired at a higher temperature. This makes it stronger and more resistant to moisture.
Stone – Using a slab of natural stone, these floors are truly unique with each having its own texture, veining, and color. Stone tile is great for kitchens, bathrooms, and entryways.
Wood-look tile is the latest revelation in flooring that gives you the look of hardwood flooring and the durability of tile. Modern digital and manufacturing advancements have made it so the appearance of natural hardwood can be replicated over tile flooring. This means that you no longer have to sacrifice style for function. Wood-look tile is extremely durable and moisture resistant so you can enjoy the look of wood in rooms where you may not have been able to before including kitchens and bathrooms.
