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.

Where Can Tile Be Installed?

You can install tile in more places around your home than just your kitchen and bathroom. Many tile options can be installed in basements in addition to laundry rooms and even entryways. More durable tiles like stone and porcelain can be installed outside around your home as a patio or walkway. Backsplash tile and wall tile can be installed on your kitchen and bathroom walls. We even have wall tile that can be installed in showers.

Types of Tile

Porcelain and ceramic tiles are two of the most popular residential options and are made from the same materials. Porcelain is heated at a much higher temperature which makes it denser and resistant to heat and moisture. They tend to be heavier and can withstand foot traffic and can also resist scratching, staining, and water. Ceramic tiles are light-weight and tend to be more cost-effective and are available in an array of vibrant and neutral colors. Ceramic tiles are a versatile product and can be installed on your floors and used for backsplashes. We also offer a selection of stone tiles that offer a unique high-end look to your home.
