Tile is a material that everybody is familiar with, but not something that many people actually know much about. There are different types of tile, and different recommended uses for each kind.
Porcelain tile is traditionally made from a mixture of kaolin clay and pottery stone.
This is what gives porcelain its translucent and almost glasslike look, while still being incredibly hard and structured. Porcelains incredible durability makes it an ideal flooring material, though it can really be used anywhere you like.
Ceramic tile is made from natural clay, sand, and water. It is more brittle than porcelain, so it is not generally recommended for use as flooring. It is typically less expensive than porcelain, and is popular for use as wall tile in bathrooms and kitchens, or anywhere in the home where a decorative accent is needed.
Modern technology now allows permanent and intricate designs to be printed onto tile, making it possible to have your tile look any way you want it to. Many homeowners use tile to replicate the look of much more expensive materials such as marble, travertine, granite, and other types of stone that would otherwise be too brittle or costly to use as flooring.In the last few years it has become extremely popular for designers to use wood look tile in bathrooms and kitchens to match the rest of the flooring in the house and create a seamless look.
Stone tile is the ideal choice for increasing the resale value of your home, or just for renovating if youre looking for something new. Real natural stone has a special look to it that just screams expensive, everyone will be able to tell that you went the extra mile with the details of your home. The natural variations make each piece of tile unique, and they will last in your home for years and years.
Most tile can be used as flooring without any problem, but some types are more brittle or more smoothly polished than others, so if you are planning to use your tile as flooring let us know and we will make sure its the right choice for you.
