Which tile is right for you? Considering there are thousands of tile products to choose from, understanding the differences will go a long way in ensuring the best decision. While tile can also be made from materials such as mosaic, metal, and glass, the vast majority of products you’ll encounter are made using ceramic, porcelain, or stone.
Made using natural clays, porcelain and ceramic tile have similar origins. Since porcelain tile is made from denser clays and fired at a higher temperature, it’s more waterproof and durable than ceramic, making it a wonderful option for high-traffic settings like busy kitchens, bathrooms, and businesses. You can even use certain porcelain floor tiles in outdoor settings. Ceramic tile is light and versatile, ideal for both floors and walls.
Stone tile, made using natural minerals like marble and granite, are prized for their unique textures and organic durability. Popular natural stone tiles include limestone, marble, slate, granite, and travertine. Stone tiles typically need to be sealed in order to lock out moisture and stains. This type of tile fares well both indoors and outdoors and can last for generations.
Tile has potential to be used in many different types of environments, both indoors and outdoors. Since stone tile is naturally weather-proof, consider using stone for an outdoor patio, on your porch, or on your fireside hearth. Porcelain tile works great in commercial environments, while both porcelain and ceramic are offered up in a universe of styles and textures, presenting smart solutions for nearly any setting.
