A tradition spanning the generations, tile adds vibrant color and creativity to all your favorite spaces. Whether you are looking to update your floors, or brighten up your countertops or backsplash, tile offers endless possibilities. There are, literally, thousands of tile options to choose from, with new products constantly being added. We at Carpet One Floor & Home in Farmington, New Mexico, know that can be overwhelming and can lead to a lot of uncertainty. Here is some helpful information to get you started down the path to the perfect tile!
Crack, chip, and dent resistant
Tile has been around for many years, and it proves itself a top choice if you want a long-lasting material on your floors, walls, and sometimes, even outdoor spaces. Because tile is a hard-surface product, you can rely on it to handle exposure to high-traffic, high heels, as well as pets or kids. Even in these situations, the tile isn’t likely to crack, chip, or dent. Tile is also one of the easiest materials to clean and maintain. Dirt and dust settle on the surface, so cleaning it up with a vacuum is a breeze. Also, if a liquid or solid spill occurs and it goes unnoticed, it can usually be scrubbed with a cloth or sponge relatively easily. Keeping grout lines clean is also simple, as you only need to wash them occasionally. Tile is also cool to the touch, so you can enjoy a sigh of relief as soon as your feet hit the floor after a long day in the heat.
Tile consumers can generally expect to choose amongst three major tile varieties: ceramics, stone, and porcelain. Ceramic tiles are built to last. They perform well under pressure, as they are made of kiln-fired clay. Porcelain tile is also made of clay but is fired at a higher temperature for a denser, more durable tile. Lastly, stone tile is made of natural slate, granite, marble, and other stones.

Wood look tile combines the benefits of tile with the look of hardwood. One of the primary benefits of wood-look tile is its ability to mimic genuine wood without the required maintenance. Tile doesn’t need to be refinished like hardwood floors do after they get worn, and they don’t need to be cleaned as often – and when they do, cleaning is a breeze. Also, unlike traditional hardwood floors, wood-look tile can be installed in areas where there is high moisture, like kitchens, bathrooms, entryways, and laundry rooms.
Tile has long been favored as flooring in bathrooms, kitchens, and mudrooms, thanks to its waterproof qualities. We also offer tile for spaces beyond your floors. We specialize in beautiful tile backsplashes, wall tiles, shower tiles, bath tile surrounds, and much more. Our showroom also features a variety of commercial tile products that feature enhanced slip, crack, and stain resistance. These collections are designed to hold up, even in your most challenging spaces. Additionally, we carry outdoor-grade tiling for patios, pool sides, walkways, and more.
Depending on the size of the project, tile installation can take anywhere from a couple of days to a month. First, the installation team will move furniture and appliances out of the way. Next, the existing floor will be removed, and if necessary, the subfloor will be leveled. An underlayment will be put down, and after that, it is time to set the material and grout. When it comes to tile installation, there is sure to be some dust and mess for a little bit, but the results are beyond worth it! Our installation team pays special attention to detail all while working in a timely and efficient manner and all labor and setting material are included in the overall cost.
