The Different Types of Tile

tile flooring in Beaumont, TX

Tile has long been a popular choice for many reasons. Tile flooring is a great option for rooms such as kitchens, bathrooms and laundry rooms due to their water resistant surface. But it is important to understand the different types of tile available. At Beaumont Carpet One Floor & Home we are here to help!

Ceramic Tile. Ceramic tile is the most commonly used tile choice inside the home. It is utilized for flooring, walls and backsplashes. With a wide variety of shapes, patterns, sizes and textures, the design possibilities are endless. Since the tiles are water resistant, spills and kitchen messes stay on the surface and are easy to clean. Ceramic tiles are even heat resistant keeping them safe and comfortable around high temperatures.

A glossy layer can also be added to ceramic tiles to provide an extra shine and additional protection from potential stains. However, glossed tiles may not be recommended for areas with high foot traffic since they tend to be more slippery.

Porcelain Tile. The process of creating porcelain tiles make them much denser than ceramic tiles. This density results in added strength and durability to the tiles. They also have a higher resistance to water which makes them great for outdoor use. Porcelain is a great option for surrounding a pool area. And with the variety of designs you can create your perfect space.
