Tile Guide

A classic addition to your office or residence, tile flooring dates to ancient times. Blending seamlessly into every style scheme from contemporary to classical, we’d be hard pressed to find flooring that’s as durable and eclectic as tile. There are literally thousands of tile options, ranging from bold mosaics to muted ceramics. At Portice Carpet One Floor & Home in Lakewood, we love tile for its ability to help us explore our artistic side.

Here’s what you need to know about this beautiful flooring option:

Types of Tile

There are many, many tile varieties for you to consider, including:

Ceramic – Made from naturally sourced clay and other minerals, ceramic tile is durable and low-maintenance. Textured ceramics tend to offer the most traction, making them work well in busier spaces.

Porcelain – Denser and more thick then ceramics, this tile is fired at a higher temperature to produce a water-resistant product.

Stone – Made from stones such as granite, slate, and marble, no two tiles are alike, making your space a truly unique work of art.
