When you take the time to consider tile flooring
for your home, you'll find it's one of the few materials that can easily be installed from wall to wall. The advantages available in this line work for every room in your home, and still offers plenty of variety. The beauty, durability, and lifespan of these floors will provide for all your flooring needs.
Décor matching has never been easier, with appearances that range from wholly rustic and all-natural to bright colors and patterns. But it's also durable enough to stand up to the busiest households, even with pets and children. And the best news of all is that you'll have plenty of time to enjoy these benefits, with a lifespan that can reach 50 years with ease.
The two most common types of tile are ceramic tile and porcelain tile, but they are often so similar that they are confused for the same material. The few differences they have, however, could make one of them a better option for your requirements than the other. So we'd like to tell you about some of those differences now.
Porcelain tile is made from 100% high-quality clay and fired in intensely hot kilns, which creates a tile that is extremely dense and waterproof. The color of these tiles goes all the way through the piece, so they are often only covered with a clear glaze, allowing the natural beauty to shine through. It's a great accompaniment to minimalistic, rustic designs, but works just as well with a variety of décor.
Ceramic is also made with high-quality porcelain, but with other all-natural ingredients mixed in, which removes the through-body coloration. These products are often covered with brightly colored glazes, which allow them to be used for extensive design matching and intricate mosaics or patterns.
They work wonderfully in a variety of rooms and settings. Both materials offer exceptional durability, resisting scratches, stains, fading, and wear, so you can confidently install them in your busiest areas. You can also install them over radiant heating and add area rugs for extra softness and warmth. Visit us soon
