Surface Art Tile
Pioneer Carpet One Floor & Home in Twin Falls, ID is your local source for all things tile, including name brand products such as Surface Art. Tile is a versatile product, so you can use it for several different projects like flooring, showers, and even walls. We offer a wide selection of tiles that are traditional and also tiles that follow the latest trends. Tile is one of the oldest surface materials in the world, and although styles and aesthetics have changed, the manufacturing process has not.
Tile manufacturing has been the same for hundreds of years and will more than likely never change, using raw materials like sand and clay and firing the materials in a kiln. Chemicals are added to the tile to give them shape, and glass is used to create a glaze on most tiles. Tiles are not meant for just flooring, you can also use them on walls and in showers.
Surface Art Tile Products
The ceramic tile Surface Art manufactures is inherently absorbent. These types of tiles can absorb a lot of moisture and can only be installed inside of your home as a wall tile. They can only be used on walls, and if you need a tile that is scratch and stain resistance use a porcelain glaze. You typically only see ceramic tile used in residential settings. Ideally you can install ceramic tile in places like your kitchen and bathroom.
Surface Art also manufactures durable porcelain tile. Their porcelain collection comes in two different options, one can absorb some moisture and the other is almost completely moisture resistant and can be installed in bathrooms, kitchens and laundry rooms as well as outside as a patio or walkway.
