There are many options to choose from in the world of tile, including mosaic, wood-look, and glass tile. However, the three main tile options are ceramic, porcelain, and stone.
Ceramic is made from natural materials like sand and clay and it is then fired in a kiln.
Benefits of Ceramic
Porcelain tiles are made from similar materials; however, they are kiln-fired at a higher temperature. This makes porcelain a denser option that is perfect for interior and outdoor settings. Plus, porcelain is heat-resistant, water-resistant, and scratch-resistant. There are tons of different porcelain options, including wood-look tile, which is made to look just like natural hardwood.
Stone tile is a natural choice for all types of indoor and outdoor use. Stone is mined from the earth in large slabs and is therefore a significant investment. However, stone is made to last, and it can enhance your space with a touch of elegance. If sealed properly, stone can last for years. Options include tile made from slate, marble, and granite.
