Tile is known to be a versatile and durable flooring product. You can even install tile on your walls in showers. Commonly tiles are installed in bathrooms and kitchens, as well as laundry rooms and mudrooms. Before your installation begins, our installers will do a moisture test in those areas to determine what type of tile would be right for that space. We always recommend talking to one of our flooring experts about what tile is best for places with a lot of humidity and moisture.
Porcelain tiles are best for bathrooms and laundry rooms because they have a lower absorption rate and will not expand due to contact with moisture. Tiles are normally dry-laid first to make sure they are correctly sized to the room, cut if needed, and then adhered to the floor with tile cement and grouted.
Tile is a good option for bathrooms because it is
both heat and moisture resistant, which is common
in bathrooms. Tile can be installed on your bathrooms
floors as well as walls and custom shower stalls. For
bathrooms there are different types of tiles, choosing
a textured tile is a good idea because they are more slip
resistant, and bathroom floors tend to be slippery.
In kitchens, tiles are common on both the
floors and walls. Kitchen floor tile is popular
because it can stand up to a lot of foot traffic, and
is easy to clean when spills or accidents happen. Kitchen
wall tile, or backsplash tile, not only adds a focal point in
your kitchen, but it also serves as a protective barrier
between your wall and accidental food splatter
and heat from appliances.
