Types of Tile
Modern-day tile presents an endless banquet of options, however some things remain unchanged. Then and now, ceramic, stone, and porcelain are the most popular tile materials. What type will you choose? Well, it depends on your preferences and needs:
Ceramic tiles are molded from natural clay and kiln fired- resulting in an enduring and sturdy tile.
Porcelain tiles are also made out of natural clays, but get finished at higher temperatures in the kiln, for denser tile that works well outdoors.
Stone tiles are made of marble, granite, and other types of stones for a tile that works great in entryways and on hearths.
