Let’s learn more about modern tiles.



What Types of Tiles Are There?

The three types are stone, ceramic, and porcelain, each of which is available in a wide range of sizes, colors, styles, textures, and patterns to add to your unique home design and decor.


Ceramic and porcelain tiles contain natural ingredients like clay, sand, and water to lessen your exposure to dangerous chemicals. Both ceramic and tile are finished in a hot kiln.


  • Ceramic tile is a budget-friendly option and is the most common type of tile you’ll see in kitchens because of its lightweight construction and range of designs. It can be installed on floors and on your walls.


  • Porcelain tiles are denser than ceramic and more resistant to foot traffic and moisture, making them great for commercial use. They can withstand years of use and continue to look new. You cannot easily crack or scratch porcelain tiles, so you are free to select a variety of furniture to place on top of the tiles. Many porcelain tiles are slip-resistant for use outdoors or in bathrooms and kitchens.


  • Stone tiles are made using natural rocks like marble, granite, and limestone. Each stone tile is unique, so you can have a completely custom floor with this option. Stone is used both indoors and outdoors and usually needs to be sealed to lock moisture out.


Tile For Your Walls

Tile trendy appeal isn’t limited to your floors.


There are special tiles that can be installed on walls as well!  These specially designed tiles are smaller and lighter in 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 break up boring and mundane walls. A tile backsplash is a great way to protect your walls against cooking accidents, grease splatters, and water worries. Wall tile is easy to wipe clean and many kinds are stain resistant. 



Planning Your Tile Installation


Since tile is such a durable option, you can install it almost anywhere in your home or business.


Most commonly you will see tile installed on kitchen or bathroom floors. More durable tile options like porcelain and stone make great flooring for mudrooms: you can even install it outside as a patio or pathway!

Can I Install My Own Tile?

In most cases, we strongly advise you don’t attempt to install tile yourself.


Tile installation is a very time-consuming process with very little room for any mistakes. You’ll need to clean your subfloor perfectly, and make sure it’s completely leveled. From there, perfect measurements need to be taken, and that’s before the tile cutting, grading, and grouting even begins.

When you choose professional flooring and tile installation, you can rest assured your project will be off to a perfect start. You won’t need to worry about issues arising from everyday mistakes, and even if damage occurs in the future, you’ll know your warranty will be honored.
