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?

Since tile is easy to care for and features heat and moisture resistance, it is the ideal option for kitchens and bathrooms. There are several other places around your home you can install tile in as well. Since tile can go on your walls, installing them anywhere in your home as an accent in an option. You can also install tile in finished basements, laundry rooms, and entryways to your home. We even offer tile that can be installed outdoors.

Tile is not just limited to your floors. Tiles also come in wall and backsplash options. These tiles are smaller and light weight, and come in many different material options. Wall backsplash can be made from a combination of tile, glass and metal, to create a more dimensional look, and can make a long wall more appealing.

Types of Tile

We carry several different types of tile, including porcelain, ceramic, and stone options.

Both porcelain and ceramic tile are made from the same materials and are popular options for kitchens and bathrooms alike. What makes porcelain different from ceramic is that it is heated at a higher temperature making it more resistant to heat and moisture than ceramic. Ceramic tile is a light-weight and affordable flooring option, and comes in a wide variety of colors. Porcelain is much denser and is resistant to heat and moisture, and also comes in a variety of styles and colors. Our stone selection features natural options, and because no two slabs look alike, each tile features its own variance so you can have a totally custom floor in your home.
