Ceramic tile flooring

Ceramic tile
is made of porous and coarse clay that is hardened in a kiln and then glazed so water does not cause damage. Solid colors or simple designs characterize this floor covering, which tends to be found in standard sizes like the perennial favorite 12-inch by 12-inch tile.

This budget-friendly, waterproof, and durable tile flooring retains its like-new look for many years.

Porcelain tile flooring

Porcelain is a type of ceramic, but there are differences between the two tile materials since porcelain is made of fine kaolin clay that is hardened in a kiln at a higher temperature than ceramic.

Because of the material makeup and higher temperature, porcelain is denser and heavier and, thus, naturally waterproof. As a result, porcelain tile is the most durable type of tile flooring available.

Trendy styles

Advancing technology has brought new porcelain tile styles to market, and two of these styles, stone look and wood look, quickly became homeowner favorites.

Tile flooring that mimics woods like oak and hickory and stones like marble and slate enhance kitchen cabinetry and help create a sophisticated ambiance. In addition, the tiles are ideal for a non-traditional layout pattern like herringbone.
