TILE TYPES

Consider the following when searching for your hardwood flooring style:

Ceramic Tile

Made from a mixture of different clays and other natural materials, fired in a kiln at extremely high temperatures until hard. They are then either left in their natural white or red unglazed state, or glazed with a colored top layer. 

Porcelain Tile

A type of ceramic tile, but much more dense due to being fired at even higher temperatures. Porcelain is harder, more resistant to moisture and staining, and has color that runs throughout the body of the entire tile.  

Natural Stone Tile

Another decorative option, available in designs made from real slate, marble, limestone, granite, and travertine stone. Much like with ceramics, different stones have a unique look, with lots of variation between individual tiles. 

TILE CARE

Because of tile’s incredible hardness, you’ll get many years of durable beauty out of your tile floors. Cleaning tile can be simple, but you need to know how to do it properly. Follow these tips to keep your tile well-maintained.

Vacuum weekly

to remove surface-level dust and dirt particles, which can damage your fibers when ground in by foot traffic.

Use mats or area rugs

to cover and protect high-traffic areas, such as entryways. These should be cleaned regularly as well.

Spot clean spills

to remove stains immediately and keep your tile floors looking new for a long time.

Rotate furniture

to cover and protect high-traffic areas, such as entryways. These should be cleaned regularly as well.
