Depending on the room you want to install in, there are three different types of tile to choose from. These are ceramic, porcelain, and stone.
Ceramic tiles are one of the most common types of tile. Ceramic is made from clay, water, sand, and other materials that are mixed together, fired, and usually glazed. These tiles are versatile and come in many different styles. Many ceramic tiles are more porous and light-weight. While they may not be totally waterproof, these are great for walls and backsplashes. Like all tile choices, ceramic is a sustainable and long-lasting option for flooring. If coated with the right glaze, ceramic can be incredibly resistant to scratches, cracks, and stains, making it popular with busy homeowners. When properly installed and cared for, your ceramic tile will last for decades, or even longer.
If you plan on installing tile in high traffic areas, go with a stronger option like stone or porcelain. Porcelain tiles are manufactured using denser clays than ceramic, and they are also fired at higher temperatures. The result is a tile that’s denser, less porous, and completely waterproof. Porcelain floor tiles are durable, heat-resistant, and crack-resistant. They are common in high-traffic settings, including both residential and commercial spaces, and some of our collections are even graded for outdoor use. Today, there are many ceramic tiles that are made with just as much durability as porcelain, so be sure to talk with our experts about finding the best tile for your needs.
While there are many porcelain and ceramic tile options that mimic natural stone, we also carry the real thing. Made from real rock, such as marble, limestone, and granite, natural stone tiles are available in a variety of colors and textures. Unlike ceramic and porcelain, each stone tile is unique, with its own shade variations, mineral veins, and texturing. They are a great choice for kitchens, bathrooms, and entryways, where you want a high-end, custom appearance. Stone tiles are usually more expensive and high-maintenance than porcelain and ceramic. Since they often have inherent micro-fissures and pores, you will likely need to seal your stone tiles to lock out moisture and stains. We offer different grades of stone tiles for varying budgets and environments. Our selection also includes stone tiles that are weather-resistant for outdoor installations.

Backsplash and wall tiles are a popular way to transform a room and protect your walls from moisture damage. Wall tile is usually a ceramic that is complemented with other materials like glass or metal. Wall tile has several functions including breaking up long walls, creating a focal point in your space, and protecting your kitchen walls from accidental food and water splatter.
Tile flooring designs can vary depending on how creative you want to get with your space. Oftentimes many homeowners choose one color scheme to stick with. Other options include choosing two shades of tile to create a checkered look, herringbone and chevron patterns are also a popular design popping up more often. Wood look tile is one of the most popular tile options today. You can have the same look as a hardwood floor, but it has the durability and water-resistance of tile.
For the most part, tile can be installed anywhere in the home. Tile is ideal for moisture-prone areas of the home like kitchens and bathrooms. As a time-tested addition to these spaces, you can rest easy knowing your new tile will last for decades. We also have wall tiles, shower tiles, mosaics, backsplashes, commercial tile, and outdoor-grade tile.
