Rochester Flooring Kitchen & Bath has you and your home covered when it comes to anything tile. Our flooring professionals are here to help you choose the perfect tile options for your next home project. Tile is one of our favorite products because it is versatile and can be installed in several rooms.
Below, Jim Aaron explains how to choose the perfect tile for your home.
Different Types of Tile
We have three main tile options to choose from including: ceramic, porcelain, and stone.
Porcelain and ceramic tile are great flooring options for kitchens, bathrooms, and even laundry rooms. Porcelain and ceramic tiles come in a wide array of styles, patterns, colors, and textures. Ceramic tile is light weight and is very affordable. Porcelain is much denser than ceramic and can resist heat and heavy foot traffic.
If you are looking for a more natural tile option, we would recommend using stone. Each stone's characteristics differ, giving you the ability to have a truly custom floor in your home. Stone may come at a higher price but with the right sealer it will last a long time.
Where Can Tile Be Installed?
Porcelain and stone tile are durable and can be installed outside as a patio or walkway. When it comes to floor tile, stick with options that are strong enough or specifically indicated as floor tiles. On the other hand, you can use many lightweight tiles on your walls.
Tiles are usually difficult to install, but fortunately, we work with teams of skilled installers who can handle any and every project. We will work with you to choose the right grouts and glazes, and we’ll be sure that the end result is exactly what you had in mind.
