Lasting, contemporary elegance
Tile is a great flooring option for families with children or pets. It can give you the gorgeous look of wood, natural stone, and a myriad of other materials with incredible durability and easy maintenance. No matter how your family lives, tile can take it.
Tile’s hardness is a fantastic asset when it comes to your maintenance and durability needs. Keep in mind, however, that a hard surface isn’t the most forgiving. With that in mind, pair your tile floors with a few well-placed area rugs to create softer spaces to stand, walk, and play.
Strength & style
Let’s talk ceramic vs. porcelain tile. The two are very similar. Both are made of clay material, and both falling under the broader umbrella of ceramics. The biggest difference is that porcelain tile is fired at higher temperatures, which makes the tiles denser and more impervious to water. This quality is especially important in outdoor applications where water could get into the tile, freeze, and cause the tiles to crack.
