There is no other flooring with the durability, elegance, and class of tile. Tile floors are universally admired, but many homeowners choose other types of flooring because they think that tile will be out of their budget. While the initial outlay of cost for tile is generally higher than hardwood, carpet, or other floorings, the price difference will be more than made up in the years to come. Tile is so durable that it almost never needs to be repaired or replaced, and with a little care it will last the life of your home. Tile flooring also adds an enormous amount of value to your home if you ever choose to sell, so you will more than recoup the additional expense.
There are several different types of tile that are commonly used as flooring or wall tiles in homes. What you should choose for your home depends on the aesthetic style you desire as well as the durability you require. Natural stone, marble or ledgestone are the highest end choices, and are very popular because they never go out of style. Slate is an option that is often appreciated for its "clefted" texture. Slate is also water resistant, so it is a great choice for pool areas or bathrooms.
Natural stone tiles will add beauty and sophistication to any home, and we have a wide variety of textures and colors that will look great with any decor. Marble tiles are often a great choice for your home because they are beautiful and unique with all their various patterns and shades creating a high-end look. With a ledgestone tile it creates a stunning statement in any home. It comes in many shapes, stone types and colors so the looks you can achieve are endless.
There are also ceramic or porcelain tile choices to choose from that will add beauty and elegance to your home. Ceramic tile has been used for thousands of years in the design of buildings. It is known for its durability, minimal maintenance, fade resistance, and superior design versatility. Porcelain tile is always a popular choice as well because it is denser, harder and offers great stain and water resistance. There are two basic types of porcelain tiles which are through-bodied (the color and texture run all the way through this type of tile) or glazed (the tile is completely covered in a ware layer that is typically colored). There are so many options to choose from when choosing the right tile for your space.
