Tile continues to evolve with the time, with new products consistently introduced to the retail market. However, the most popular tile types remain some of the more traditional tiles: stone, ceramic, and porcelain. Consider your functional needs when choosing tile: indoors or outdoors, heavy use or moderate use, casual or formal. Ceramic tile is the most used tile on the market and is made of clay, which is then fired in a kiln. Ceramic tile is a popular choice for commercial use, since it can withstand heavy traffic. When ceramic tile is fired at a much higher temperature, it becomes porcelain. Porcelain makes for very dense tile that is tough enough to use outdoors, but also lends itself beautifully to kitchens, bathrooms, and other interior spots. Carved out of natural substances like travertine, marble, and granite, stone tile is a popular pick for patios, since it blends in so nicely with the natural landscape. Stone tiles are also a popular pick for foyers and fireplaces. You can find a wide selection of our tiles online.
