Expert Advice - Choose the Perfect Tile

Join our very own Jim Aaron, VP of Merchandising for Carpet One Floor & Home, for some information on the three basic types of tile flooring: ceramic, porcelain, and stone.

Where Can Tile Be Installed?

Tile is incredibly durable and easy to care for, so it can really be installed almost anywhere in your home. Ceramic and porcelain are especially popular in kitchens, bathrooms, and laundry rooms, but they also can be installed in living rooms and basements. Porcelain tile is even durable enough for outdoor settings such as patios or walkways.

In addition, tile can be installed on walls and backsplashes, and it can be used to create custom showers and baths. For these smaller areas, be sure to consider decorative tiles such as mosaic tile and glass tile. These, while not as durable as floor tiles, are definitely more stylish.

Types of Tile

There are three main types of tile: ceramic, porcelain, and stone. Ceramic tile and porcelain tile are the most popular types for residential settings. For the most part, ceramic and porcelain are the same because they are made using clay and sand, but porcelain is denser than ceramic. This means that porcelain is better-equipped to handle heavy moisture, so it is actually practical for outdoor settings such as patios. Both ceramic and porcelain are available in traditional tile looks and a wide array of vibrant or neutral colors, as well as wood and stone looks.

Stone tile is made from real stone, so unlike ceramic and porcelain, it offers unique looks that can add value to your home. Stone is usually treated and sealed to protect against spills, stains, and scratches, so it will last a long time if properly maintained.
