Smith & Purvis Carpet One Floor & Home in Hammond, LA has you and your home covered when it comes to anything tile. Tile is one of our most versatile products because not only can you have it on your floors but also your walls. Our flooring professionals are here to help you choose the perfect tile options for your next home project.
Below, Jim Aaron explains how to choose the perfect tile for your home.
Types of Tile
We have three main tile options to choose from including: ceramic, porcelain, and stone. Ceramic and porcelain are popular options for both kitchens and bathrooms. Ceramic tile is light weight, comes in several different colors and styles, and is a budget friendly choice. Porcelain is a denser tile and is more water resistant than ceramic. With porcelain tile you can place heavy appliances on it knowing it can handle the work load.
Stone tile is a natural option and is cut from slabs and quarried from different locations so not all are alike, giving you the option to have a truly custom floor in your home. Stone may come at a higher price but with the right sealer it will last a long time.
Depending on the type of tile you choose, tile can go pretty much anywhere inside and outside of your home. Porcelain and stone tile are durable and can be installed outside as a patio or walkway. Any tile option works well for your floors, but when it comes to tile on your walls you want to choose either a ceramic option or a tile that is specifically meant for walls.
Tiles are usually difficult to install, but fortunately we work with teams of skilled installers who can handle any and every project. We’ll work with you to choose the right grouts and glazes, and we’ll be sure that the end result is exactly what you had in mind.
