Tile Design Ideas
In addition to the natural beauty of tile, it is also timeless and easily adapts to changing home décor. Tile’s versatility goes beyond its timeless appearance; it can also be used as a backsplash and in showers. A tile backsplash adds a pop of color to your kitchen as well as texture. Choose from modern, traditional, or coastal backsplashes to match your kitchen’s style.
Tile is also used in showers to break up the traditional look. Instead of having a basic shower, add a unique touch with tile. Go for elegant, rustic, or anything in between. A tile shower is easier to maintain and won’t show the watermarks and dirt left behind.
Types of Tile
There are three main types of tile: ceramic, porcelain, and stone. Ceramic tile and porcelain tile are the most popular residential options, and they are among the first flooring choices for kitchens and bathrooms. For the most part, ceramic and porcelain are the same, but porcelain is denser than ceramic. The denser the tile, the more resistant it is to heat, moisture, and humidity. So, it is actually practical for outdoor settings such as patios. Both ceramic and porcelain are available in traditional tile looks, as well as wood and stone looks.
Stone tile is made from natural stone found in the ground, so unlike ceramic and porcelain, it offers unique, one-of-a-kind looks that can add value to your home. No two slabs are quarried from the same location, so most stone tiles feature their own unique looks. Stone is usually treated and sealed to protect against spills, stains, and scratches, so it will last a long time if properly maintained.
Where Can Tile Be Installed?
An advantage of tile is its installation versatility. Because it can withstand moisture and heat, tile can pretty much be installed anywhere in the home. Ceramic, porcelain, and even stone are especially popular in kitchens, bathrooms, and laundry rooms, but they also can be installed in living rooms and basements. Porcelain tile is even durable enough for outdoor settings such as patios and decks, and it can also handle the foot traffic you'd expect in commercial settings.
