TILE FLOORING GUIDE

Tile is known as a durable and easy to clean flooring solution. Tile allows you to let your creative side free and create a custom look in your home. Tile can go anywhere in your home including walls, showers, and outside. Our sales professionals at Designer’s Carpet in Mississauga, Ontario, are here to help you make the right selection when it comes to tile.

 

We often refer to tile as a “green” flooring product because it is made with natural materials and features no VOCs. Tile is a durable and long-lasting option that is easy to care for and is also an allergy friendly option for those who suffer from them.

 

Types of Tile

 

We carry several different types of tile including porcelain, ceramic, and stone options.

 

Ceramic tile continues to be top of mind for homeowners. It is an excellent choice for a variety of spaces for many different reasons. Not only can you install them as flooring but also tile backsplashes in your kitchen or bathroom, custom shower niches, and low-traffic flooring in your living room or bedroom are just a few of the areas where ceramic tile works well. It is a budget-friendly option that can mimic wood or stone and will help to elevate your home design.

 

If you are looking for a durable tile that can handle more than just moisture, consider choosing porcelain tile. It is made with high heat and sturdy materials that make it ideal for high traffic areas. Porcelain tile can be installed in living rooms, bedrooms, mudrooms, custom showers, and even laundry rooms because it is waterproof. Along with its incredible durability, you can find porcelain tile in a variety of designs so that you can get beauty and performance with your tile floor.

 

Stone tile is a natural option for tile in your home. With granite, slate, marble, and travertine being just a few of the stone tiles available today, you can truly find a unique stone tile to suit your space, whether it’s a custom bathroom or a cozy entryway. With stone tiles, no two tiles are identical. Because of this, they bring elegance and beauty to any home.

 

In addition to floor tile we also offer wall and backsplash tile. These tiles are smaller and light weight, and come in many different material options. Wall backsplash can be made from a combination of tile, glass and metal, to create a more dimensional look, and can make a long wall more visually appealing. Backsplash tile is easy to care for and can protect your walls in your kitchen from accidental food splatter.

 

Where Can Tile Be Installed?

 

Tile is traditionally installed in bathroom and kitchens. There are several other places around your home you can install tile in as well. Since tile can go on your walls, installing them anywhere in your home as an accent wall is an option. You can also install tile in finished basements, laundry rooms, and entryways to your home.
