Ceramic tile is an affordable and durable flooring option that offers greater protection against stains, water damage, fire damage, and physical damage than wood, carpet, and vinyl plank flooring. It is commonly used for bathrooms, kitchens, entrance rooms, on walls, and is a popular choice for DIYers.
Quarry tile is the preferred tile choice for restaurants, kitchens, and other high-traffic commercial businesses for its hardness, slip-resistance, and water-resistant properties. Pressed from clay, quarry tile is similar in hardness to brick and is often unglazed and with wide grooves.
Porcelain tile offers the same advantages as ceramic tile, but with added water resistance and physical durability. It is ideal for high-traffic, high-wear rooms, and is often found near fountains and other high-moisture areas.
Glass tile’s high shine and stain resistance properties make it perfect for walls and brightening up a space. It is often used as a backsplash, around mirrors, or in showers. Glass tile will sometimes be used as an accent for outdoor patios and paths.
