Expert Advice - Choose the Perfect Tile

Join our very own Jim Aaron, VP of Merchandising for Carpet One Floor & Home, for some information on the three basic types of tile flooring: ceramic, porcelain, and stone.

Types of Tile

There are three main types of tile: ceramic, porcelain, and stone. Ceramic tile and porcelain tile are the most popular, and affordable types. All porcelain tiles are ceramic, but not all ceramic is porcelain. For the most part, ceramic and porcelain are the same, but porcelain is denser than ceramic. It can resist moisture, heat, and wear which makes it more durable. If you want high-end tile in your home, then consider investing in stone flooring. These tiles come at a higher price tag, but feature long-lasting durability. They even add real estate value to your home. No two stone slabs are quarried from the same location, so each tile features its own unique mineral pattern.

Where can Tile be Installed?

Ceramic is great for areas around your home such as bathrooms and kitchens. They are affordable and come in a variety of style options. If you are looking for a more durable and longer lasting tile, then we suggest choosing porcelain. Porcelain is both water and heat resistant, making it a great option for an outdoor patio. Maybe you want something more natural to add to your home - stone tiles are a great option. It may be more expensive, but offers a look of its own as well as adds value to your home.

We have tiles that are stylish and functional in other spaces around your home besides flooring. Wall tile is a great compliment to walls in kitchens and bathrooms and can transform a wall into a statement in your space. Wall tiles are much smaller than floor tiles and not as durable, so they should not be installed on your floors. They come in a wide selection of shapes and colors and can come in preset patterns or you can create your own!
