Types of Tile

What are The Different Types of Tile?

With so many choices on the market today, it can be tough to choose just one tile. At Carpet One Floor & Home in Tuscon, we are here to help with that! We can help you learn more about each type before committing to one, and we carry a wide selection of ceramic, porcelain, and stone to choose from. Whether you’re looking kitchen or bathroom tile, backsplash tile, or accent wall tile, you’ll be impressed by the variety in our showroom. 


Ceramic Tile 

Ceramic tile is the most popular type of tile today. It is known for the many styles and patterns, like modern, traditional, contemporary, and more. Ceramic tile is best for flooring in moderate traffic spaces like bedrooms or dining rooms, and can also be installed on backsplashes, and tile accents. Some ceramic tile is waterproof, so it can be installed on shower walls and shower floors as well. Another benefit of ceramic tile is that it is usually a cost-effective option, so if you’re looking to stay on budget, consider ceramic. 


Porcelain Tile 

Porcelain tile is the strongest type of tile on the market. It is heated at high temperatures and pressures, higher than that of ceramic, which makes it ideal for commercial spaces, outdoor areas like patios, and high traffic areas. Living rooms, hallways, and stairs are just a few of the common rooms where porcelain can be installed. Porcelain also comes in many styles, so don’t worry about finding this durable tile in a style that’s perfect for you! 


Stone Tile 

The most luxurious tile, stone is a naturally occurring product that is often costly. However, many believe that genuine stone cannot be mimicked, making it worth the cost. Stone tiles are usually found in slate, granite, and marble, and their durability can depend on the material. If you want to add extravagance to your space, consider stone tiles.
