In addition to tile’s natural beauty, it easily adapts to changing home décor. Tile’s versatility goes beyond its timeless appearance; it can also be used for wall backsplashes and in showers. A tile backsplash adds a pop of color to your kitchen as well as texture. Choose from modern, traditional, or costal backsplashes to match your kitchens style.
Tile can be made of many materials, but the bulk of options are ceramic, porcelain, or stone.
Ceramic tile, made from kiln-fired clay, is an affordable tile that's prized for its vivid colors. Ceramic tile can be glazed or left in its natural state. It's a smart and sturdy option for bathrooms, kitchen backsplashes, and entryways.
Porcelain tile is a specific type of ceramic. Fired at a much higher setting, this tile is dense and moisture-resistant, making it especially prized for outdoor use. There are different textures and patterns available, including porcelain tile that captures popular hardwood species' looks.
Stone tiles are carved from slabs of natural minerals. These natural wonders are perfect indoors or outdoors. Since no two stones are exactly alike, you'll be assured each floor is unique. Stone tile options include granite, marble, and slate. This type of tile can be pricey but well worth it since most stone tiles can last a lifetime.
Looking back at wood look tile from a few years ago, you wouldn’t think that it would become a popular flooring style. Tile manufacturers have improved the process of duplicating the look of wood in the form of porcelain or ceramic tile. Homeowners love wood look tiles because of how easy they are to care for compared to hardwood.
Wood look tile can:
Be cleaned using soap and water
Doesn’t need refinishing
More affordable than hardwood
In addition to a stunning floor option tile can also be installed in showers to break up the normal and dull look. Instead of having a generic shower, add a unique touch with tile. Go for elegant, rustic, or anything in between. A tile shower is easier to maintain and won’t show the watermarks and dirt left behind. Tile can also be installed as an accent wall, as a kitchen backsplash, or around your fireplace. While we no longer offer professional tile installation, our team of tile professionals will happily guide you towards your next steps.
Tile installations are a messy affair, but well worth it. Expect to conduct a thorough cleaning once the installation crew leaves. You can minimize the mess by closing doors to rooms outside the installation area and placing coverings over anything you’d prefer to stay dust-free. Underlayment will be required unless your subfloor is concrete. Grout is required for your tile installation, but the great news is that modern-day grout means your tiles will remain permanently sealed.
