Ceramic tile is a very popular choice for today’s homeowners. Its durability and ease of maintenance is perfect for any family on the go. There are five elements to consider when purchasing your ideal ceramic tile floor: size, shape, color, texture and pattern. Darker colors will give the appearance of a cozy space, while lighter colors can open up an entire room. Ceramic tile comes in a wide variety of patterns and shapes. From rectangular to hexagonal with separate corner inserts, you can create any look that you desire. Textured tiles are designed for fashion and abrasive tiles are designed for slip resistance, for use in areas that are prone to standing water, such as a poolside area. Tile is available in the following types; ceramic, glazed porcelain, thru-body porcelain, as well as natural stone, travertine, slate, marble, glass and metals.
Many tile companies have design tools to help you with tile layout and patterns, floor tile calculations, and general ideas. Here are a few example sites we suggest you check out when making decisions about ceramic tile.
