A timeless tradition, tile adds artistry, durability, and color to all your favorite spaces. Whether you’re looking for a beautiful backsplash, a formidable floor, or a fancy focal point, tile presents endless possibilities for your indoor and outdoor gathering spots. With thousands of texture, color, style, and material combinations, there’s tile that seamlessly incorporates into just about any décor scheme. All things considered, it’s really no surprise that tile has remained a reliable flooring choice for centuries.

Wondering where to begin? Here’s some helpful information to get you started down the right path:

Types of Tile

Tile continues to evolve, with new tile products constantly being revealed to the market. However, some things remain constant and the majority of popular tile is crafted using ceramics, stone, and porcelain.

Which tile will work best for your home? Here are a few things to consider:

Ceramic tiles are made to stand the test of time, as they hold up well under heavy foot traffic. Ceramic will perform indefinitely, as it’s fired out of clay.

Porcelain tile works well outdoors. These clay tiles are fired at the highest temperatures, for a denser product.

Stone tile is crafted out of stones like slate, marble, and granite. This tile is right at home in the great outdoors, but is also a great addition indoors.
