Porcelain & ceramic tile FAQs

Porcelain & ceramic tile FAQs

No one makes a flooring purchase without asking a few questions, and we answer many of them every day. To make your shopping experience more worthwhile, we offer a few of our most frequent answers for your consideration.

Frequently asked questions about floor tile

Are porcelain and ceramic floor tile the same thing?

Porcelain is made of high-quality clay and fired at scorching temperatures, while ceramic uses clay mixed with other all-natural materials. That gives the porcelain a bit more density and water resistance, but many homeowners find that they can use the two interchangeably in many home areas.

Is tile flooring a durable option?

Few floor coverings stand up to heavy traffic, stains, allergens, and fading the way that tile flooring does. However, they can easily withstand average wear and tear and offer commercial-grade protection for options that cater to any durability need.

What are my design options with tile flooring?

The sky is the limit when it comes to designing with tile, which provides a wealth of colors, patterns, designs, formats, and installation options, all geared towards meeting your specific décor-matching requirements. Many homeowners even add areas rugs for an added visual layer and warmth and softness, making it a worthwhile floor covering for every room.
