Tile flooring is one of the most popular options for bathrooms and kitchens. While there are a couple of different types, ceramic and porcelain are the most durable and reliable. And for the discerning homeowner looking to create the perfect space, there’s a seemingly endless amount of styles to choose from when it comes to tile flooring. Learn more about the inventory available at Macadam Floor and Design, and visit our Portland Design Center to view the options in person.
Ceramic Tile vs. Porcelain Tile
Here at Macadam Floor and Design, we carry both ceramic and porcelain tile. We often get asked which one is better. Both are extremely long-lasting to withstand heavy foot traffic. After all, kitchens and bathrooms are some of the most used rooms in a home.
However, porcelain tile tends to be slightly more water resistant than ceramic, which helps keep it from cracking and staining. However, when installed and sealed properly, ceramic floor tile is comparably impervious. Both are easy to clean and maintain over time and are better for the environment than other flooring options. When it comes to cost, ceramic tile is typically more affordable.
So Many Styles to Choose From
One of the beautiful things about tile flooring is that there’s a style for every room. You can use tile to create a simple, monochromatic bathroom, or a vibrant washroom with lots of personality. Thanks to the wide range of colors, textures and designs, it’s easy to find one that coordinates perfectly with your overall theme. For example, if you love the rustic farmhouse style, you can choose tile flooring that looks like distressed wood. And if you prefer something a little more luxurious, there are tiles available that resemble marble and granite.
At Macadam Floor and Design, you’ll have access to hundreds of different options. We work with a large selection of top brands in order to provide as much variety as possible. This gives you plenty of design opportunities to play around with, so your creativity and personal style never have to feel limited.
