In the process of designing your home or commercial space? Not sure what flooring choices to make? Here are a few things you may want to consider before making a final decision.
When it comes to tile, the possibilities are endless. From a wood look finish to a fabric, or monochromatic look, tile comes in many shapes and forms! Tile allows us to get the same look as other flooring surfaces but without the added maintenance, worry, or cost! It also offers a limitless palette of textures, colors, shapes, and styles to create original designs.
Aside from the many looks tile can offer, it is also durable. Ceramic tile, if properly installed, can maintain its original qualities and can last longer than other flooring or surfacing options out there. Tile is also chemical and weather resistant—from the hottest Miami day to a freezing Colorado winter it manages to withstand the different temperature changes. It has a sixty-year life span, can be placed anywhere in the home (inside or out), and is resistant to heavy foot and wheel traffic. Contractors have relied heavily on tile to meet the demand—proving that it not only offers high design, but maximum durability to any home or commercial space.
You may be wondering…what else can tile offer?

Its fade and frost resistance, durability, enhanced traction and cleanability makes it the best choice for exterior settings. Add the same tile flooring used in your indoor kitchen for the outdoor patio and create a seamless indoor-outdoor design!
