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.

What are the Different Types of Tile?

There are three main types of tile: ceramic, porcelain, and stone.

For residential settings, porcelain and ceramic tiles are the most common option. Ceramic and porcelain are made of the same materials, but porcelain is denser. Most porcelain tiles are either resistant to moisture or completely waterproof, and they are a great option for outdoor patios. Both ceramic and porcelain are available in traditional tile looks and a wide array of vibrant or neutral colors, and even follow trends like wood look.

For those looking for more high-end tile, we offer stone. 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?

Since tile is inherently durable and resistant to moisture, it can be installed 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. Other tile options such as porcelain and stone can even be used outside as a patio or walkway.

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.
