If your home’s a hub of activity, tile flooring is tough to top. Waterproof, stain, and scratch resistant tile never sells you short on stile. At Medallion Carpet One & Paint in Deerfield Beach, FL, we’re your local tile experts, offering the best tile brands and products in ceramic, stone, and porcelain.
Tile is truly timeless and easily adapts to changing home décor. Beyond a hard surface flooring option, it can also be used as a backsplash and in showers to break up the traditional look. Instead of having a basic shower, add a unique touch with elegant or rustic tile. A tile shower is easier to maintain and won’t show the watermarks and dirt left behind.
There are three main types of tile: ceramic, porcelain, and stone.
Ceramic tile and porcelain tile are the most popular residential options and ideal for kitchens and bathrooms. Both come from kiln-fired clays, but since porcelain is fired at a higher temperature, it’s denser and therefore, more resistant to heat, moisture, and humidity. Both ceramic and porcelain are available in traditional tile looks, as well as wood and stone look.
Stone tile is made from natural stone and offers unique, one-of-a-kind looks that add value to your home. Popular stone tiles include travertine, marble, slate, and granite. No two slabs are quarried from the same location, so offer distinct veining and shades. Stone is usually treated and sealed to protect against spills, stains, and scratches, so it lasts even longer. Stone, and even porcelain in some cases, are great outdoor flooring options.
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. Once intended to serve as a protective barrier between the wall and cooking splatter, counter spills, and splashed water is now a lovely focal point.
Wall tile can break up the linear arrangement of cabinets. It’s an efficient way to combat the moisture and mold problem endemic to kitchens and bathrooms. For those on a budget, it's an extremely simple step transform your kitchen or bathroom.
Where to Begin? Whether you're planning an entire kitchen renovation or a simple update, there are an infinite number of choices in material, color, pattern, texture, size, and degree of upkeep. From the simplicity of subway tiles to the intricacy of mosaics, it's yours for the choosing.
Subway tile proves white need not be boring. Pair with oversized industrial-design fixtures and gourmet appliances for the look of a professional kitchen.
Marble tile is an excellent companion to a marble countertop. Seek tiles with a similar shade and vein pattern of grey veins but occurring in a smaller pattern.
Sea green glass brings dreams of a summer beach home, adding an aura of sun, sand, and sea to your home, even if it's in a city high rise.
Mosaic tile makes a striking contrast to a granite countertop. Consider the other colors in your kitchen, then look for a mosaic design that will pull them all together.
An advantage of tile is its installation versatility. Tile can be installed anywhere in the home. Ceramic, porcelain, and even stone are especially popular in kitchens, bathrooms, and laundry rooms, but can also be installed in living rooms and basements. Porcelain tile is durable enough for outdoor settings such as patios and decks, and it can also manage the foot traffic you'd expect in commercial settings.
