I bet you have been looking at tile and are confused on what tile to choose. Well that all depends on where you are laying the tile. Each area has certain elements you want to take into account before selecting a tile.

Porcelain Tile

Porcelain tile is a stain resistant tile. Therefore, this tile is more suited to be laid in the kitchen. Since it is a high traffic area with many spills and stains you may want to also choose a grout that is a little darker. This will hide any staining.

Natural Stone Tiles

Natural stone tiles are great to use outdoors because they can withstand the elements. You can use these tiles for walkways, outdoor kitchen areas, around your pool and any other outdoor space. You will want to make sure you choose the outdoor tile properly due to the texture and design of the tiles. If you choose marble or any other smooth natural stone it can become slippery when wet. If you have any questions on the perfect tile for your outdoor area you can call one of our experts.

Vinyl Tile

Many people will go with Vinyl tile since it is the lightest of all tiles. Depending on your home type heavy tiles may cause structural concerns. You will not want to use vinyl tiles in the bathroom or basement due to the moisture concerns. You may end up with lifting in those areas. There are many designs and colors you can choose from, even tiles that look like wood.

Small Mosaic Tiles

As a general rule when tiling smaller spaces you will want to use smaller mosaic tiles.  That will make the room appear larger. Mosaic tiles have become a trend for 2017 especially in bathrooms. We have some amazing beautifully made mosaic tiles that would be perfect for your bathroom. And because they are smaller in size they are much easier to install.
