Tile offers durability, easy maintenance, and time-less beauty – an ideal choice for both commercial and residential settings. Tile also happens to be a green choice for homeowners looking for an environmentally friendly floor. Most tiles feature low to no VOCs, are made from natural materials, and do not require harsh chemicals to be cleaned.



Types of Tiles

When most homeowners think of tile, they think of ceramic. Ceramic tiles are made from clay that is pressed together and baked in a kiln. Ceramic tile comes in natural tones and glazed options that vary in colour – meaning your choices are almost endless. Not only does the glaze change the colour of the tile, but it also helps to make it resistant to moisture and scratching. Ceramic tiles can be installed in kitchens and bathrooms, and are very easy to clean and care for.


Porcelain tile is a type of ceramic, but is more durable due to being fired in a kiln at a much higher temperature. Porcelain is both water and heat resistant, making it a great option for an outdoor patio. They are a great option for active households because they are resistant to water, heat, and heavy traffic. Since porcelain is so versatile, it can be installed in not just your kitchen and bathroom, but also hallways, entryways, or your laundry room.


If you are looking for a more natural look to add to your home, stone tiles area great option. It may be more expensive but you achieve a look of its own as well as adding value to your home. Our stone selection includes options like granite, marble, limestone and more. Since stone is such a beautiful tile to look at, we suggest installing in in places where your guests can see it right away like in entryways.



Tiles for Backsplashes

You can install tiles on more than just your floors; they are practical in other settings too. Wall tile is a great compliment to walls in kitchens and bathrooms, and can even be used as a statement piece or focal point.
