Expert Advice - Choose the Perfect Tile

Join our very own Jim Aaron, VP of Merchandising for Carpet One Floor & Home, for some information on the three basic types of tile flooring: ceramic, porcelain, and stone.

Where Can Tile Be Installed?

Tile is a popular choice for kitchens and bathrooms because of its resistance to heat and moisture, in addition to how easy it is to maintain. Tile is such a versatile product though, that it can also be installed in areas like laundry rooms, entryways, as well as your basement. More durable tiles like stone and porcelain can be installed outside around your home as a patio or walkway.

We also offer a selection of wall tile, backsplash tile, and shower tile. Take your design skills to the next level by adding a backsplash or custom tile accent wall in your home. You can even customize your bathroom by installing a tiled shower, which adds style and even value to your space.

Types of Tile

There are three main tile types: porcelain, and ceramic. Common residential options include porcelain and ceramic. Although porcelain and ceramic tiles are made from the same materials, porcelain is denser because it is heated at a higher temperature. Porcelain tiles are more durable, so they can tend to be heavier and can withstand a lot of foot traffic. Porcelain is also resistant to moisture, so they are a good option for three season rooms and even as an outdoor patio. Ceramic tiles are light-weight and easy on your budget, and are available in an array of vibrant and neutral colors. The best part is ceramic tiles can be installed on your floors and walls. Stone tile is a high-end option and more expensive than ceramic or porcelain. Stone slabs are quarried from different locations, which mean you can have the ultimate variation in your floors. Stone can be installed inside and outside of your home.
