Below are the different types of tiles we offer at our showroom. Continue reading and learn about what makes each type of tile unique and which would be best for your next project.


Wall Tile

Ceramic and porcelain tiles can be also installed on your walls, but wall tile is usually thinner than floor tile. Wall tile is thinner because strength and durability against foot traffic is not an issue. For most kitchen and bathroom settings, ceramic is appropriate given its design versatility. In fact, stylish mosaic tile is often preferred for beautiful designs. However, for areas such as showers, porcelain tile that absorbs less than 0.5% moisture is a better option since it is more water and heat resistant.

Ceramic Tile

Ceramic tile is a great choice for residential kitchens

and bathrooms. We recommend ceramic tile for

indoor use given its design versatility. There are multiple

sizes, shapes, colors, and patterns from which to choose,

so no design is impossible! Plus, ceramic tile resists water

and heat, and it remains strong enough to support moderate

foot traffic. Not only that, but ceramic tile can be installed

on your walls as a backsplash. So, if you want to add style

to a kitchen or bathroom, ceramic tile is a great option.





Porcelain Tile

For outdoor and commercial settings, porcelain tile

is more appropriate. Porcelain is more durable than

ceramic, since it is totally water and heat resistant. It can

handle anything from heavy foot traffic to changing

weather conditions, and it will rarely crack. Since

porcelain is typically installed in areas with a lot of

moisture, they feature a slip resistant surface for your

protection and peace of mind.

Stone Tile

We also offer high-end stone tile options as part of our

tile collection. Stone tiles are quarried and come in slabs.

Since no slab is quarried from the same location, each

stone tile features a pattern that is unique. Stone flooring

is long lasting and beautiful, but can become expensive

depending on the size of the area you plan on covering.
