Tile is a traditional flooring option that continues to be a popular home flooring choice. It is a reliable option that you often find in kitchens and bathrooms. Tile resists moisture and heat, which makes it a durable flooring option. Tile is also tremendously versatile when it comes to style and design capabilities. At Quality Carpet One Floor & Home in Crofton, MD, we offer a wide range of tile collections and styles, including subway tile and wood look tile.
Tile is not limited to just flooring, you can also install tile on walls, in showers, and outside. Floor tiles tend to be larger and more resistant; whereas, wall tile is smaller and lighter as well as decorative.
Types of Tile
We offer three main types of tile, which includes: stone, porcelain, and ceramic. Ceramic and porcelain tile are relatively similar when it comes to style and design options, but they differ in strength. Porcelain is denser than ceramic and can resist moisture and heat better. Ceramic is a good option for kitchen floors and backsplashes. Porcelain is a better option for bathrooms and can even be used outside for patios.
Porcelain and ceramic tile can be made to look like stone, but natural stone tile has special characteristics. Stone is made from natural materials, and is quarried from different locations, so each tile is unique and provides your home a one-of-a-kind look. When properly maintained and sealed, stone can last a long time.
Where Can Tile Be Installed?
The main advantage to tile is its versatility. Since tile can withstand heat and moisture, it can be installed almost anywhere in your home. Ceramic, porcelain, and stone are all popular options for kitchens and bathrooms as well as laundry rooms. Porcelain tile is durable enough to be used outside as a patio or a walk-way and can handle heavy foot traffic.
Tile can also be used as a backsplash in showers and around tubs. Consider using decorative tiles like mosaics, glass, and metals to make a truly custom design. Wall tiles may offer a stylish and unique look in your home.
