Here's some background information about the most popular types of tile:
Ceramic tile is made from clay that's been glazed and baked. It can withstand both high heat and cold, and can be utilized in virtually any room. It's easy to clean, making it a popular material for use as both kitchen counters and backsplashes. And unlike some flooring materials, it's suitable for damp areas such as bathrooms and laundry rooms because it's not affected by moisture. Ceramic tile is also a good choice for use in outdoor areas to make patios and porches more aesthetically pleasing. With proper installation, your floors will last for decades with little maintenance. Porcelain is a type of ceramic tile that is available in wood looks and large formats.
Natural stone tile is directly mined from the earth. It includes marble, granite, limestone, and travertine. Each of these gorgeous stones has a different use in your home or office. For example, marble isn‘t well suited for damp locations or high-traffic areas. While it's the most luxurious, it's also the softest of the natural stone materials, so it necessitates special sealing for protection. Granite, on the other hand, is one of the hardest materials -- just after diamonds. It's a popular, long-lasting flooring choice in most home and office areas provided that it's been properly sealed. Travertine is frequently used for pool surrounds and shower walls due to its high resistance to moisture absorption and the fact that it offers more traction to help prevent slipping.
Glass tile has a variety of practical uses. It can be included with other kinds of tile to create an eye-catching mosaic on your home or office floors or walls. As with travertine, it can also be utilized for certain applications in showers or pools. It's not recommended for shower flooring due to the fact that it's slippery when wet. Glass tile is frequently used for backsplashes or as an attention grabber on walls, floors, and countertops. It'll never fade due to exposure to direct sunlight or become damaged by dirt and water. This makes it a good choice for many outdoor applications.
