Select Tile Countertops and Backsplashes the Easy Way!

1. With the myriad tile options available today, selecting finishes for your countertops, backsplashes and feature walls has the potential to be overwhelming. Before heading to our Portland showroom to choose your new tile, let’s cover some basic types of man-made tile. Then come on in and we will help you find just the right tile for your new countertops and backsplashes!

Common Tile Options for Countertops and Backsplashes:

Ceramic Tile
Ceramic tile is widely utilized for countertops, backsplashes, shower walls, wainscots and fireplace surrounds. Ceramic tile is available as either handmade or machine-made and can mimic the look and feel of natural stone, wood or cement tiles. Because ceramic tile is fired at lower temperatures than porcelain tile it can be more susceptible to moisture and cracking or chipping if a heavy or sharp object impacts the tile surface. Some ceramic tile requires sealing prior to grouting.

glass tile

Glass Tile
Glass tile makes a wonderful addition to backsplashes, fireplace surrounds, showers or feature walls. Glass tile options range from glossy to frosted and can be solid color or variegated. Some glass products are consistent from tile to tile while others have inherent color and texture variation.

Glazed Brick Tile
Brick visuals provide texture on fireplace surrounds, feature walls and floors, but the thickness of true brick can be a problem for some applications. Glazed brick tile is a perfect solution, simulating the look and texture of real brick in the convenient thickness of ceramic or porcelain tile that can be installed on both walls and floors.

Metal Tile
Metal tiles range from industrial stainless steel to vintage bronze. When designing wet or hot applications such as showers or fireplace surrounds check to make sure the specific product you select is approved to be installed in these areas.

Mosaic Tile
Mosaics are a workhorse in the tile world— they can be used anywhere from floors to backsplashes. Conforming to drainage slopes and providing slip resistance makes mosaics the ideal choice for tile shower pans too. Mosaic tiles are typically mounted on a 12×12 sheet for straightforward installation and can be cut apart to create a decorative feature for your tile backsplash, shower, fireplace or floor. Our mosaic offerings include ceramic, porcelain, glass, metal, shell and natural stone.

Porcelain Tile Porcelain tile can mimic the look and feel of natural stone, wood planks, cement tiles or even slab countertops. Being fired at a higher temperature than ceramic tile means porcelain tile is more moisture resistant.
2. Now that you are familiar with the most common tile countertops and backsplashes, determine the visual you are interested in and discuss quality and price ideals with a tile expert at our Portland showroom to make an informed tile decision you’ll be happy with for years to come! For best results, consider how your new countertops and wall tile will relate to your cabinets, flooring and wall colors. Be sure to bring a picture of your space along to your appointment!
3. Last, your project manager will help you determine additional options such as grout color and trims to complete your new tile installation.
