Tile is a traditional flooring option and continues to be a popular home flooring choice. It is a reliable option that you often find in kitchens and bathrooms alike. Tile resists moisture and heat, making 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 tile collections that come in all kinds of style from plain subway tile to wood look.
Tile is not limited to just your flooring, you can also install tile on walls, in showers, and even 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 include: 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, can resist moisture better, and resist heat. Ceramic is a good option for kitchen floors and is used for wall tile. Porcelain is a better option for bathrooms and can even be used outside to create a patio.
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 something unique and gives 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 when it comes to where is can be installed. 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 as well as in showers and on tubs. Consider using decorative tiles like mosaics, glass, and metals to make a truly custom design. Wall tiles may not be as durable as floor tile, but they are stylish and make our home unique.
