With its versatility, durability, and cool elegance, it's no wonder tile floors are so popular. Once reserved for busy entries, baths, and kitchens, tile is making its way into every room in the house. Tile can look rustic or cutting edge, and it can be installed in virtually any pattern. Made from natural materials like ceramic, stone or glass, tile is environmentally friendly. Some manufacturers even offer tile that uses recycled content.
Ceramic Tile. Crafted from a mix of clays. Because the material is porous, it is finished with a protective glaze. Ceramic tile is slightly more prone to wear, cracking, and chipping than porcelain tile.
Porcelain Tile. Made by firing finely ground clays and minerals at extremely high temperatures, is harder and denser than ceramic. Porcelain is better at resisting water and stains and is often used outdoors as it won't crack in cold temperatures. However, it is harder to install than ceramic tile.
Natural Stone Tile. Usually made from travertine, limestone, marble, granite, or slate. Stone is the most durable, improves with ages and lasts a lifetime. However, it is the most expensive option.
