Tile flooring is a very popular flooring choice for plenty of applications. Tile comes with a variety of options in color, texture, size, and composition. It can even mimic the appearance of hardwood floors! Sometimes the climate of a region or simply the type of room in a house will lend better to tile flooring. In bathrooms, for example, hardwood floors can’t stand up to the constant moisture that is generated from showers. Laundry rooms, or mud rooms might also lend better to tile flooring. Tile flooring is mostly divided into the categories of ceramic, porcelain, and stone.
When choosing a tile, consider the overall end result you are hoping to achieve. Because of the variations in color and texture, you must first decide how much variety you like in each tile. For example, tiles marked with low color variance and texture will give you a more uniformed result. Boxes rated with higher shade and texture variance will require carefully blended tiles from different boxes to insure an aesthetically pleasing result.
Tile flooring is also available in an array of sizes. You may select one size for the entire space, or you might choose to vary the sizes to create decorative areas or geometric patterns. Consider the size of the room when choosing the size of your tiles. Large tiles in a small room may make the space appear smaller, whereas small tiles in a large room can create a busy effect due to all the grout lines. The width of grout lines can play an important role as well with the overall appearance of tile flooring. Corlew and Perry can help you select the size of tile and grouting lines that will surpass your desired results.
Composition is another area of consideration when choosing tile flooring. Ceramic tile is easy to clean and is resistant to scratches, odors, and stains. Porcelain tile is more dense than ceramic because it is made of clay and minerals. This also makes it more water resistant. One of the most popular stone tiles is travertine. Travertine tile is used as floor tile in both residential and commercial settings. Each type boasts great qualities, so let the team at Corlew and Perry assist you in choosing the best tile solution for your space.
