What Are The Three Types of Tile?

Before you decide on the style of tile you prefer, consider the type of tile that works best for you. The three types of tile to consider are porcelain, ceramic, and stone.


Porcelain & Ceramic

  • Porcelain and ceramic tiles are both made from natural clays, but porcelain is the more durable of the two.
  • Porcelain is heated at a much higher temperature, which makes it denser and more moisture resistant. This tile can be used for heated flooring, fireplace surrounds, shower surrounds, and more!
  • Ceramic tiles are lightweight, affordable, and versatile in color and style. Because Ceramic is a lightweight tile, it can also be installed on your walls.


  • Stone tile is naturally derived from the earth and can be used to create rustic and contemporary looks.
  • Some stone tile options can be used for outdoor patios and walkways
  • If sealed and maintained properly, stone tile can last for years to come

Tile for the Home

If you’re looking for flooring or backsplash that is durable and beautiful, tile is the clear winner. Plus, tile is offered up in a whole universe of materials, and it is a popular addition to any home in our area thanks to its water-resistant properties!


  • Use tile for backsplashes to prevent spills on kitchen walls.
  • Create custom bath, shower & fireplace surrounds.
  • Mudrooms and laundry rooms will always be a breeze to clean with tile walls and tile flooring.

Wood-Look Tile

If you’ve been dreaming of a luxurious hardwood look that is easy to clean and waterproof, look no further than wood-look tile.


  • No more warping, water damage, or scratches that need to be buffed out!
  • Wood-look tile options are available in all types of plank styles, e.g., whitewashed, rustic, worn, and more!
  • Save on budget and stress with installation costs and upkeep.

Where Can My Tile Be Installed?

Thanks to its versatile and durable nature, tile can be installed indoors and outdoors, if chosen carefully. In general, porcelain tile is best suited for most projects in our area.


Tile has very few limits when it comes to areas of installation:

  • Tile is a traditional option for kitchens and bathrooms.
  • Specific tile flooring options can be installed in basements, laundry rooms, and entryways.
  • More durable tiles like stone and porcelain can be installed outside, creating a striking patio or walkway.
  • Backsplash tile and wall tile can be installed on your kitchen and bathroom walls and your shower.
