Are you looking to update your space with tile? Here’s a guideline on the basics of tile and what option may work best for you.
We carry a range of tile types and styles to meet our customers’ interior design needs for both residential and commercial spaces. Before selecting the style and color that works best in your space, we suggest considering the type of tile. This is important because not all tile types are the same. Here’s a closer look at the three main types of tile:
This tile is excellent for kitchen backsplashes and interior spaces. Because it is made from recycled materials like clay and sand, this tile is considered lightweight compared to the other types. Keep in mind that this tile is less durable or water-resistant than stone or porcelain, due to its porous nature. Ceramic helps insulate walls and floors, which can lower your utility bill!
Porcelain is known for its durability and non-porous benefits because it is kiln-fired at a higher temperature than ceramic. While it’s made from the same materials as ceramic, porcelain is resistant to heat and heavy traffic, making it the perfect tile for areas including kitchens, fireplace surrounds, and entryways.
Perhaps the most luxurious of the tile types, natural stone offers a classic look that can enhance any space. Stone materials include marble, granite, slate, and travertine. Natural stone tiles are heavy and durable, so you can have the installed inside and outside of your home. Just be sure to properly seal and maintain your stone to prevent scratching or staining.
In general, our tile can be installed just about anywhere in your home or commercial space. This is largely thanks to its ease of maintenance and its range of styles. However, some stone tile, like marble, and some solid hardwood flooring may not be suitable for heavy-traffic areas or high-moisture spaces. However, if you’re dreaming of hardwoods or a full marble floor, try our rustic wood look or our marble-look porcelain tile, instead! Our Bel Terra tile brand offers the look and feel of real stone and hardwoods, without the stress of maintenance. Not sure which tile is right for your space? Check out these tile design tips!
