Tile in Newhall, CA
Tile has been gracing our spaces for generations, and today, there are more tile flooring options than ever before. Sturdy and stylish, tile has so much to offer. It boasts endless customization opportunities and is built to stand the test of time.
At Brent’s Carpet One Floor & Home of Newhall, CA, we can’t wait to introduce you to the colorful world of tile. Tile can be used anywhere on your property. It’s a smart solution for walls as well as floors, both indoors and outdoors. If you’re tempted by tile, here are things to keep in mind as you start shopping.
Which tile type is the right pick for your home or business? Today, there are thousands of tile options available. Having a proper understanding of how each tile type is made and its respective strengths will help ensure your project goals are met. The bulk of tile products are made of ceramic, porcelain, or stone.
Ceramic is known as a lightweight, 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 wise choice if you have pets in your home or for use in high traffic areas like an entryway
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.
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.
Wood look flooring is one of the more popular flooring trends today, and different flooring types replicate the authentic looks of wood. Tile is one of those floors that mimic natural wood and remain durable like you expect tile to be. Tile manufacturers have been producing realistic, quality floors for all to enjoy. Ceramic and porcelain tiles are used to create wood look tiles and feature the same textures and even details as hardwood like grain and knots.
Wood look tile can be installed anywhere in your home due to its durability and resistance to moisture. Porcelain is a popular material used for wood look tile, and you can install wood look flooring in places like your kitchen & bathroom, laundry room, even in the mudroom. Not only can you have a unique style, but now you can have a unified look to your home by extending your wood look tile into multiple spaces.
A smartly selected tile installation is truly an asset in any space. Most tile is waterproof: all are moisture resistant. Tile can be used as flooring throughout your interiors. It’s also a traditional choice for outdoor patios, poolside areas, and garden paths. All tile is designed to be mixed and matched for creative customization. Tile can make a great accent wall: it’s also popular for showers.
No bathroom or kitchen remodel is complete without a custom tile backsplash. Ceramic or porcelain tile is an especially compelling addition to these hectic spots. Since it not only keeps moisture at bay but also prevents stains, tile is often a much better wall option than wallpaper or paint. Your tile backsplash can be easily customized, incorporating all your favorite textures and colors for a look that’s one-of-a-kind. Keep in mind that there are thousands of tile products available today.
Your new tile backsplash will serve as a focal point and will also protect the walls around your shower and tub, behind your stove range, or behind the sink. A tile backsplash can hold up to any potential damage, including scratches, dents, stains, and cracks. Of course, in the rare event a single tile does become damaged, it’s easier to replace an individual tile than to re-paint an entire wall.
