Tile Guide

If you are looking for a floor that is both versatile in application as well as style, then take a look at tile flooring. Its unmatched durability as well as unique style is what makes tile such a popular option in virtually any room of your home. In addition, tile comes in a variety of price ranges to help fit your budget. Kenny’s Carpet One Floor & Home has what you need when it comes to tile.

Although you most commonly see tile installed as a floor, you can also install tile on your walls. Wall tile, or backsplash tile, adds a splash of design on an otherwise mundane and plain wall. Not only that but it protects your walls from accidental floor splatter in the kitchen, and is incredibly easy to care for. There are even tile options strong enough to handle being installed outside as a patio.

Types of Tile Flooring

There are three types of tile options for you to choose from which includes porcelain, ceramic, and stone. You’ll commonly see porcelain and ceramic tile in bathroom or kitchen settings. Ceramic tile comes in a large variety of styles and colors for you to choose from and make great kitchen floors. Porcelain tile is baked at a higher temperature, making the denser and dimensionally stable, so you can install them in heavily used areas of your home.

Stone tile is a natural material and is incredibly durable, but it does come with a higher price tag. Stone is usually treated and sealed to protect against spills, stains, and scratches, so it will last a long time if properly maintained.

When you think of tile, you normally imagine it in bathrooms or kitchens. You can install tile in many other areas of your home as well. Consider installing a porcelain tile in your mudroom or laundry rooms. The frequently see high temperatures and a lot of moisture, so a durable tile is a great option.
