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 can pretty much be installed anywhere in your home, it just all depends on the type of tile you choose. Ceramic and porcelain are especially popular in kitchens, bathrooms, and laundry rooms, but they also can be installed in living rooms and basements. Porcelain and stone tile can be installed outside as well as a patio or walkway.

As we mention, we offer more than just tile flooring option. We offer tile that can be installed on walls, and even tile that can be installed as a custom shower stall.

Types of Tile

There are three main types of tile: ceramic, porcelain, and stone.

When it comes to residential tile, porcelain and ceramic are the most popular choices. All porcelain tiles are ceramic, but not all ceramic tiles are porcelain. Porcelain is heated at a higher temperature and therefore is denser and resistant to heat and moisture. Both ceramic and porcelain are available in traditional tile looks and a wide array of vibrant or neutral colors, and even follow trends like wood look.

For our more high-end customers, we offer natural stone tile. Each stone tile features its own variation. Stone is usually treated and sealed to protect against spills, stains, and scratches, so it will last a long time if properly maintained.
