Below are the different tile options you can find in our showroom.
Custom Backsplash and Wall Tile
Paint and wallpaper are not the only materials you can use to decorate your walls. Make a bolder and bigger statement in your home by using wall tile. Wall tile, or backsplash tile, is a great way to break up a long, boring wall with something stylish and eye catching. Compared to the options available, backsplash tile is not only easier to clean but it will not be affected by moisture or humidity.
What are Ceramic Tiles used for?
Ceramic is known as a light-weight, affordable option that is commonly used in kitchens and bathrooms. Ceramic tile can be installed on your floors and your walls. It is made from sand and clay, and when covered with the right glaze, ceramic can be incredibly resistant to scratching, making it a great choice if you have pets in your home or for use in high traffic areas like an entryway.
Durable Porcelain Tile
Porcelain is a durable type of ceramic tile, but not all ceramic is porcelain. What makes porcelain tile different is it is fired in a kiln at a higher temperature, which makes the tile denser and more resistant to heat and moisture. Porcelain tile is more water resistant than ceramic so you can install it in places like your laundry room and even outside as a patio, without worrying about moisture being absorbed and causing cracks.
Natural Stone Floor Tile
Although natural stone may be a more expensive option, it is a unique choice in flooring. Since no two slabs are quarried from the exact same location, the variation in the tiles gives you a one-of-a-kind look. Natural stone tiles are heavy and durable, so you can have the installed inside and outside of your home. When sealed correctly, natural stone is stain and water resistant.
