As the tile industry continues to expand, selecting a tile that's right for you can seem overwhelming. It's always smart to consider the unique attributes and benefits of different tile types, considering that some are better suited for specific settings than others. Here are the three most widespread tile types and what you should know:
Ceramic tiles are made from natural clay, sand, and other materials that are fired together in a kiln. Ceramic is typically the lightest of the tile types and frequently used for wall tiles and backsplash materials. A gorgeous ceramic mosaic tile creates the perfect backdrop for your kitchen and bathroom space. Ceramic wall tiles also help protect your walls from moisture, stains, and other forms of damage.
Meanwhile, porcelain tiles are made similarly to ceramic, but with denser clays and fired at higher temperatures. The result is an extra durable and waterproof surface that's perfect for floor tiles. Porcelain is often too heavy for vertical applications, so you won't find it used on walls as frequently. White porcelain tile is a classic option for kitchens and hallways, including in busy commercial environments. You can even use some porcelain products in outdoor settings. It should also be noted that many modern tile manufacturers make ceramic products that are just as robust as porcelain.
Lastly, stone tiles are crafted from slabs of natural rock, making them a popular pick for outdoor patios, commercial settings, and fire hearths. Each stone tile is completely unique with its own sediment patterns, mineral deposits, and textures. Popular stone tiles include marble, granite, slate, travertine, and quartz.
