Types of Tile

Ceramic and porcelain tile are a good choice for those that are worried about scratching. Because the surfaces are typically glazed, this helps to resist scratches unlike other hard surfaces such as hardwood which scratch more easily due to their soft character.

Most ceramic and porcelain are earth friendly because they are often composed of partially recycled materials and also manufactured using natural materials rather than synthetic.

Why Choose Tile?

If you are looking for a flooring product that is beautiful, water resistant, and cleans up easily, you should consider tile.

Tile is easy to decorate with. It comes in a large assortment of shapes, sizes colors and textures. If you have a large and wide room, consider a larger tile such as an 18" x 18" or even a 20" x 20" size. These larger sizes will bring out the best of your rooms by making them look bigger and less busy. For standard sized rooms and kitchens, a 12" x 12" tile size is a good starting point. If you are switching to tile for the first time in a particular room and are confused as to how it will look, try purchasing a few tile sample pieces to lie down on your floor. Live with these samples for a few days and see how comfortable you are with the look and feel.
