Add Elegance To Any Room
The right tile flooring brings a grandeur and elegance to any room. Tile flooring includes a wide array of different materials, such as porcelain, natural stone, and glass, giving you the flexibility to introduce a luxurious look to any room. These water-resistant, resilient materials are adaptable to inside and outside areas including kitchens, bathrooms, patios, and more.
Depending on the material you choose most tiles fall into neutral tones of greys, creams, browns and beiges, though you can opt for bolder choices in dramatic onyx, honey, emerald, and red hues. Grout colors can either contrast or blend with your chosen colors.
Choose from a large selection of shapes and sizes to craft your own custom design. Petit squares and lean rectangles are popular for backsplash and border accents on walls, while oversized squares are trending in tile flooring. Choose solid or patterned tiles, or combine the two.
The texture and surface type also affect the overall appearance of ceramic and porcelain tiles. Create the style that’s perfect for your room─from a smooth, flat surface and high-gloss coating to a natural stone texture and matte finish.
Ceramic and Porcelain
Ceramic tile can best be characterized as either porcelain or non-porcelain. Traditional ceramic tile is non-porcelain and is made from white, red, and/or brown clay and other minerals. Porcelain ceramic tile is made from clay and minerals as well, but it also contains 50% of a white dust or sand called feldspar. Feldspar is a type of crystal found in rock that acts as a "flux" during the kiln-drying process, melting into a glass-like material and bonding all of the molded ingredients together. Minor modifications to the ingredients of ceramic tile or the kiln-drying process create enormous variety in the appearance and characteristics of manufactured ceramic tile flooring products.
Natural Stone Styles
Natural stone is a versatile product and can be installed in most rooms inside and outside the home. Because different stones have different properties, some types are preferred in specific settings. For instance, slate may be preferred for a patio or atrium, whereas travertine may be preferred for a family room or living room. When it comes to the finish on stone tiles, there are many options. Different finishes can give entirely different looks to the same piece of stone.

Endless Possibilities of Glass Tile
Glass tiles are becoming increasingly popular as decorative materials for the home due to their versatility and their water-resistant properties. Aside from their functionality, they are prized for their aesthetic value.
While glass tiles are available in a broad range of colors, styles, textures, and sizes, they are essentially categorized into three product groups; cast glass tile, fused glass tile, and low-temperature coated glass tile materials. These classifications are based on the temperature of formation which the glass raw material is subject to during the manufacturing process.
Easy to Clean and Resistant
Whatever material you choose for your tile floors, know that cleaning them will be a painless process. All tile floors should be swept and vacuumed regularly, and mopped with warm water according to manufacturer specifications. Grout should also be cleaned periodically, though some build-up and fading in color is inevitable.
Natural stone is a little more sensitive than other types of tile, so make sure to avoid food spills, as anything acidic can leave serious etching and stains. The same goes for acidic cleansers, like those containing lemon or vinegar. Scouring powders and creams can also leave lasting damage.
When it comes to glass tile, a simple vinegar-water cleanser can do wonders for accumulated mildew. Let the mixture sit for ten minutes so it can break down the filth. If you need to scrub out the grime, use a soft bristle with gentle force, and buff with a towel so the glass keeps its shine.
