Don't let moisture bring you down

Ceramic and Porcelain Tiles


Moisture certainly cannot be avoided in rooms such as kitchens, laundry rooms, and bathrooms.  But, moisture doesn’t mean that you cannot achieve a stylish design.  Choosing the right selection of tiles can make a great design a possibility.  Tiles are strong, easy to clean, and, most importantly, water resistant.

Ceramic tiles are typically best for indoor use since they offer the most design options.  They are available in a variety of colors, shapes, and sizes, so they can certainly accommodate any room’s design.  Plus, ceramic tiles can be used to create custom designs, which are great for walls and backsplashes.  For added looks and durability, ceramic tiles can be layered with glaze.  The layer of glaze adds color and shine, and it also protects against spills and stains.

Porcelain tiles and stone tiles are better options for outdoor use.  They offer more strength and water resistance, so they are able to handle tough weather conditions.  They also remain non-slip even when wet.  But, porcelain and stone tiles are usually more difficult to install, and they also do not offer ceramic’s design versatility.
