Expert Advice - Choose the Perfect Tile

Join our very own Jim Aaron, VP of Merchandising for Carpet One Floor & Home, for some information on the three basic types of tile flooring: ceramic, porcelain, and stone.

Types of Tile

Most tile on the market today is ceramic, porcelain, or stone tile. Determining the best tile for your home can depend on several factors like foot traffic, activity levels, rooms, and trends. Both ceramic and porcelain tile are fired under high temperatures. However, porcelain tile is heated at an even higher temperature than ceramic, making it increasingly durable and resistant to moisture. Because porcelain is more resistant to weathering, it can also be used outside. Both porcelain and ceramic tile are created with your unique home design in mind, which is why they are offered in so many styles. Stone tiles are luxurious, natural tiles made from genuine stone like marble or granite. Stone tiles can be an extravagant feature in your home when used in a large space, or an accent in a small space. Either way, stone tiles are known for their distinctive markings and sturdy nature.
