Select Tile Flooring the Easy Way!
1. We make it simple to navigate the many tile flooring options available today. We’ll help you target the right product for your lifestyle, aesthetic and budget! Before heading to our Portland showroom, let’s cover some tile vocabulary.
Floor Tile Vocabulary
Thanks to modern manufacturing technology, both ceramic tile and porcelain tile can simulate stone, cement tiles and even wood. Since ceramic and porcelain tile can be look-alikes to the untrained eye, be sure you understand the performance differences prior to making your purchase and discuss your needs with one of our experts.
Ceramic Floor Tile
Ceramic floor tiles are often a more budget-friendly option than porcelain tile, however, because ceramic tile is fired at lower temperatures than porcelain tile it can be more susceptible to cracking or chipping if a heavy or sharp object impacts the tile surface. While ceramic tiles can range in size from small mosaics on up to 18”x18”, a common size for ceramic tile is 12”x24”. Large ceramic tiles are best suited to shower walls or lower traffic areas such as guest bathroom floors.
2. Now that you are familiar with the two basic types of man-made floor tile, determine the visual you are interested in and discuss quality and price ideals with a flooring expert at our Portland showroom to make an informed tile flooring decision you’ll be happy with for years to come! For best results, consider how your new floor tile will relate to adjacent flooring, wall colors, cabinets, countertops and furnishings. 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, heated floors and baseboard molding to complete your new tile flooring installation.
