has withstood the test of time for centuries. Today, it is still a popular choice for flooring offering clean lines with character and style. Tile
is an optimum flooring choice for kitchens, bathrooms, utility rooms, even family rooms and probably just about any room in the house inside or out. Here are some practical benefits to tile:
• Easy maintenance
The aesthetic benefits are the myriad of choices, designs, styles, and materials. The flexibility tile offers in design is unmatched. Tiles can be used as borders, medallions, on walls, as backsplashes, on floors, on counters. Styles and colors can be mixed and matched. The design possibilities are endless.
Ceramic and porcelain tile are very durable and moisture resistant, which is why they are a great choice for kitchens, bathrooms, outdoor spaces, and basements. Ceramic tiles are grouped into two main types: quarry tile (shale or natural clay) and clay dust that is compacted. Flooring tiles are made from the latter and both types can be glazed or unglazed.
