What Types of Tiles Are There?

Which type of tile is the best option for your home or business? Tile is one of the most eclectic options around.

There are multiple ways to enjoy tile, but the bulk of options are made from ceramic, porcelain, and stone.

  • Ceramic tiles are light and sturdy. It’s crafted using natural clays and is popular for kitchens and baths. Often finished with glazes, ceramic is protected from chips and scratches, making it a wonderful choice for homes with pets and small children.
  • Porcelain tile is also made of clay, however, porcelain tile is fired at a hotter level than ceramic is, for an extremely dense tile that offers up optimal waterproofing. For this reason, porcelain tile is popular in the laundry room, but also is great for your outdoor patio. Tough and beautiful, porcelain tile doesn’t easily chip or crack.
  • Stone tiles are a natural beauty, and nothing wears harder. Made from granite, travertine, slate, marble, and other organic materials, stone tile makes flooring that’s unique and one-of-a-kind. Since stone tiles are waterproof once they get sealed, this tile works well poolside as well as fireside.
