Different Types of Tile


Tiles are noted for their design versatility and water resistance, so they are perfect for kitchens and bathrooms. And, although tile flooring is most popular, tiles can be used on walls as well. Let the experts at Carpet One Gainesville help you design the perfect kitchen or bathroom with tiles.


Kitchen Tile


Tiles are popular in kitchens because they provide style and design while maintaining strength, durability, and water resistance. In other words, tile certainly makes it easy to have a stylish yet practical kitchen design. For kitchen floor tile, ceramic tile is more popular given its design versatility.  It is available in a variety of colors, shapes, and sizes, and the tiles also can be glazed for extra shine.



Also, wall tile is practical in kitchens, especially near your stove or sink. Porcelain tile is the best choice because it offers extra durability against moisture and other spills or splashes from cooking. Be sure to work with us to design beautiful kitchen backsplashes as well. Kitchen backsplash tile is often more focused on style and design, so mosaic tiles are a great option.


Tile in Bathrooms


There is no question that tiles are some of the most popular flooring and wall options in bathrooms. Ceramic tiles are suitable for bathroom floors, but porcelain tiles are sometimes more appropriate given the extra moisture you typically have in bathrooms. Also, both ceramic and porcelain tiles are suitable for bathroom walls, but for shower tile, we definitely recommend porcelain given the high moisture and heat levels.
