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. For residential settings, porcelain and tile are the most popular options. Ceramic and porcelain are made of the same materials, but porcelain is denser. This means that porcelain is better-equipped to handle heavy moisture, and is a practical option for outdoor patios. Both ceramic and porcelain are available in traditional tile looks and a wide array of vibrant or neutral colors, as well as wood and stone looks.

Stone tile is made from real stone and it offers unique looks that can add value to your home. No two slabs are quarried from the same location, so the tiles all feature their own variations. Stone is usually treated and sealed to protect against spills, stains, and scratches, so it will last a long time if properly maintained.

Where Can Tile Be Installed?

Tile is incredibly durable and easy to care for, so it can really be installed almost anywhere in your home. Ceramic and porcelain are especially popular in kitchens, bathrooms, and laundry rooms, but they also can be installed in living rooms and basements. Porcelain tile is even durable enough for outdoor settings such as patios or walkways.

In addition, tile can be installed on walls and backsplashes, and it can be used to create custom showers and baths. For the most part, tile that is installed on walls is not suitable to be used on floors.
