Tile is one of our traditional flooring options as well as one of the most versatile options we offer. It is a very versatile product when it comes to style as well as application. At Harry’s Carpet One Floor & Home in Quincy, MA we are excited to offer one of the area’s best selections of tiles. For example, we have traditional floor and wall tiles, and we also have decorative tiles that are great for custom designs.
Below, Jim Aaron explains how to choose the perfect tile for your home.
Types of Tile
When choosing tile, you have three different options: ceramic, porcelain, and stone. Ceramic and porcelain tile are both popular options for kitchen and bathroom flooring. Ceramic is a cost effective option that comes in several different color and style options. Porcelain is denser than ceramic, and can resist moisture making it a very durable bathroom option. You can even install porcelain outside as a patio.
Stone tile is another option, and it is very durable and resistant to water, stains, and heat. Stone tile is perfect for outdoor settings, and when it comes to inside the home, you can have a truly custom one of a kind look.
Where Can Tile Be Installed?
When it comes to tile types, some are meant for floors and others meant for walls. Lighter ceramic tile options are used for backsplash and wall tile because they are not as heavy as porcelain. Tile is also a good option for kitchen and bathroom flooring, and you can install it in your laundry room and mudroom due to its easy maintenance features.
Tiles are usually difficult to install, but fortunately we work with teams of skilled installers who can handle any and every project. We’ll work with you to choose the right grouts and glazes, and we’ll be sure that the end result is exactly what you had in mind.
