Types Of Tile And Stone For Your Home
When choosing the right tile for your home you're left with a variety of choices. From porcelain and ceramic to slate and glass the possibilities are endless. In addition to this, you can mix and match tiles to create a pattern that will further accent any space. Take a look below to learn about some of the characteristics and styles of the different types of tile and stone we can install.
The most common application of slate tile is for flooring. Slate tile can last up to 50 years before needing to be replaced, a testament to its long-lasting durability. When used for flooring applications it provides a soft, smooth texture that is comfortable underfoot. We most often see homeowners wanting to use slate tiles for areas such as the kitchen or bathroom as it holds up to water very well.
Glass tile is typically seen in mosaic backsplashes or accent pieces for showers. This tile is used to add a splash of color and detail to spaces that are normally left plane or blank. Glass tile is a very popular option as it can match or accent almost any style and is easy to maintain.
Ceramic tile may be the only flooring material that truly works in any room of the house. It's most often used in kitchens and bathrooms as well as foyers, mudrooms, and other high-traffic areas. Glazed ceramic flooring tiles have a hard protective top layer that makes the tiles impervious to water and most stains, making them naturally resistant to the ravages of high humidity conditions. This is the main reason why tile is preferred for wet areas like bathrooms, kitchens, and laundry rooms.
Many households prefer porcelain tiles for their home’s flooring and walls for various reasons. First, porcelain tile floors are denser, impermeable to moisture and are a more durable option that provides excellent stain and water resistant properties compared to ceramic tiles. They are also very durable.
