We can help you make sense of it all: don’t worry!


Are There Different Types of Tiles?


From timeless to trendy, tile truly offers up something for everyone. While tile can be made of many different materials, including metal and mosaic glass, the vast majority of the tile you’ll find in our showroom is made from stone, ceramic, and porcelain. Porcelain and ceramic tiles are made from clay and fired in a kiln, with most being glazed. Both work very well indoors and resist moisture, however since porcelain is fired at higher temperatures, it’s the denser of the pair and more water resistant. For this reason, porcelain tile can also be used outside. Stone tile is made from rocks and minerals like marble, slate, and granite. It can be glossed or left in its natural state, used both indoors and out.


Where Can I Install Tile?


The look of tile is always in heavy demand and its endless possibilities, along with its ability to resist humidity and moisture, translates perfectly to the Florida climate. Tile is a great choice for practically every room in your house. A hardy, enduring tile fares well for an outdoor patio, while a glossy marble is a great choice for your entryway or living room. There are even tile options well-suited for your walls, and a tile backsplash can be a great addition to your kitchen or bathroom. You can Ceramic tile and porcelain tile are great options above sinks and stovetops because they are extremely durable. They can withstand moisture, heat, and other environmental factors such as grease. Nonetheless, you can certainly use ceramic and porcelain to create stylish designs. Tile installation can be complicated with a multiple-day installation process and usually requires a fair share of grading and grouting, but it will last for decades once it’s in place.



Caring and maintaining your tile is a breeze and with our tips and tricks, you can enjoy newer-looking floors for longer.


Which Tile Is the Most Durable?
