Tile has a storied tradition of gracing our homes and gathering spaces, which certainly rings true today. With its sturdy build and enduring elegance, tile flooring and wall tile remain a favorite. It’s easy to customize and constructed to stand the test of time.
At Dick’s Carpet One Floor & Home of Oakland, California, we love helping you discover tile’s true colors, and our tile flooring and wall tile collection span all of the latest looks. There are tile options for every setting, including flooring tile and tile for walls, backsplashes, and beyond. Are you considering a tile installation in the coming months? Here are things you should know.
Which tile type will fare best in your home or office? There are thousands of tile options to consider and understanding how each tile type works will help ensure all objectives are met. Tile is made from a wide range of materials, but most tile is made from ceramic, porcelain, or stone.
Wood-look tile is a smart choice for those who wish for hardwood looks with tile’s strength and waterproofing assets. If you have your heart set on hardwood in your kitchen or bathroom, wood-look tile is something you might consider!
Wood-look tile makes it possible to experience all the things you love about natural hardwood- the intricate wood grains and patterns, for example – along with the ease of care and flexibility that comes with vinyl, porcelain, or ceramic tile. Like all tile, wood-look tile is made to withstand moisture, heavy foot traffic, climate extremes, splashes, and spills, and its care requirements are minimal. Damaged tiles can be individually replaced, making repairs more economical as the years roll on. For these and other reasons, one might argue that wood-look tile is even better than the real thing.
Tile isn’t only for floors: the perfect accent wall or backsplash makes a statement that can’t be accomplished with paint or wallpaper. Your new wall tile will automatically draw the eyes and break up the monotony of a drab, boring wall.
A tile backsplash is a marvelous option for distinguishing your space with bold colors and patterns – the perfect thing when you need to accentuate a certain part of your room.
Since tile is heat and water-resistant and, in most cases, waterproof, it’s also a wonderfully stylish way to protect your walls from bathtub splashes and kitchen splatters. It’s a cinch to take care of- usually, you’ll be able to just wipe it clean- and it will stay new for much longer than other mediums, like paint or wallpaper.
