Types of Tile
While tile continues to improve and evolve, some things remain constant. Tile consumers can generally expect to choose amongst three major tile varieties: ceramics, stone, and porcelain.
Which tile is best for your home? Just a few facts to ponder:
Ceramic tiles built to last. They perform really well under pressure, as they’re made out of kiln-fired clay.
Porcelain tile is also made of clay, but is kiln fired at a higher temperature for a denser result. It’s a great choice for outdoor spaces.
Stone tile is made out of natural slate, granite, marble, and other stones. It’s a great choice for both indoors and outdoors.
