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?

Since tile is so durable, it has become a staple for kitchens and bathrooms. Tile can be installed in more than just your kitchen or bathroom; you can even have it installed in your basement. Other places tile can be installed include laundry rooms and even entryways. More durable tiles like stone and porcelain can be installed outside around your home as a patio or walkway.

We also offer a selection of wall tile, backsplash tile, and shower tile. Bring your style up a notch by adding a backsplash or custom tile accent wall in your home. You can even customize your bathroom by installing a tiled shower, which adds style and even value to your space.

Types of Tile

Our tile selection features porcelain, ceramic and stone options for you to choose.

Ceramic and porcelain tiles are made from the same materials like clay and sand, although all porcelain tiles are ceramic, not all ceramic tiles are porcelain. Porcelain is categorized differently because they are denser and resistant to moisture and heat. Ceramic tiles are light-weight and easy on your budget, and are available in an array of vibrant and neutral colors. Our stone collection features unique options for you to explore. Stone slabs are quarried from different locations, so no two tiles will look the same.

Other tile options we offer can be made from different materials including glass, metal, and even concrete. Mixing different types of tiles into patterns can create amazing dimension and also make it stick out from the rest of the décor in your home. You will most commonly see mixed materials in backsplashes and custom tiles showers.
