Tile flooring brings a clean, upscale look to a room
Tile is a good wall and
floor covering choice for any homeowner. If you're an interior designer at
heart, you can combine them with different shapes, sizes, and colors to create
a unique, spa-like bathroom or luxury kitchen. Or, if you favor no-fuss
decorating, you can choose standard ones to create a clean, upscale look in a room.
Regardless of your decorating style, you can find the one that meets your needs
at Gowdy Flooring. Our tile flooring
store is located in Amarillo, Texas.
Ceramic is composed of
coarse clay that is hardened in a high-temperature kiln. Many ceramic brands
are neutral in color and standard in size, although there are more unique
designs. Apply colored grout between them for added visual interest. Ceramic is
a porous material, so only glazed ones are waterproof. This clay-based material
is less dense and harder than porcelain. Thus, it is easier to cut, which may
positively affect the amount of time needed to install a floor.
Naturally, waterproof porcelain is a type of
ceramic that is made of kaolin clay. This refined clay is hardened in the kiln
at a higher temperature than ceramic. Porcelain is a durable material that
stands up to heavy foot traffic. It is very resistant to stains and scratches
and is superior to ceramic, so they are more costly. Many colorful designs are
available, including wood look and stone look tiles that expand decor options.
High-quality tile floors never needs to be replaced.
