The Classic Gleam of Ceramic Tile
This type of tile is made from clay that is fired in a kiln, which makes it strong and durable, an ideal choice for a busy home with lots of foot traffic. Ceramic is softer, lighter, and less dense than porcelain or slate tile flooring, making it easier for cutting and tile flooring installation.
Ceramic is one of the most cost-effective choices for tile. It costs less than porcelain or slate. If budget is one of your priorities in choosing flooring, we recommend that you consider ceramic tile. Ceramic tile is also available in contemporary wood-look fashions.
Durable, Moisture-Resistant Porcelain
Porcelain tile is dense, strong, and highly resistant to moisture, making it a versatile and desirable flooring option. Porcelain is harder than ceramic and a bit more versatile because it can be made to look as glassy as granite or marble. The way porcelain is made gives it a clean, modern look that works well with any style of décor. Our flooring showroom provides you with hundreds of styles and colors of porcelain tile that enhance any room.
