Ceramic tile is widely known and loved for many reasons. Not only is ceramic tile durable, but it is also stylish. There is no one size fits all when it comes to ceramic, thanks to the vast number of styles, shapes, and sizes ceramic tiles come in. Suitable for both commercial and residential installations, ceramic tile is a versatile material that also brings beautiful designs to life.
Porcelain tile is crafted using high heat and pressure and is the second most popular tile type on the market. Porcelain is more durable than ceramic when it comes to high traffic and weather changes, and is usually more costly than ceramic. However, it continues to be a sought after tile because it can be installed in both indoor and outdoor areas, and is unlikely to crack or chip.
Stone tiles are usually the priciest type of tile, but they bring luxury and refined looks to homes that other tiles don’t. Every stone tile is unique, and when installed you can see the variation among the tiles. If you’re looking for a one-of-a-kind tile with natural touches, stone tile could be the best choice for you. Stone tiles can be used both indoor and outdoor, but they must be sealed to make them water and stain resistant.
