Ceramic tile is made from clay and other natural substances. It is highly durable and can withstand all kinds of wear and tear in a variety of environments. Ceramic tile is frequently found in kitchens and bathrooms because it’s able to withstand constant moisture.
Carpet tiles are tiles in name only. They are actually just pieces of carpet cut into squares. This makes for a potentially easier installation alternative to standard carpet rolls. Many homeowners also use carpet tiles to create checkerboard patterns on their floors.
Travertine tile is a beautiful flooring tile option. It’s actually a type of limestone created by mineral springs. You might notice one of travertine’s defining characteristics: the holes within the stone, which are produced by carbon dioxide evasion. The most common colors of travertine tile are brown, gray, gold, and beige.
Tile is not just used for kitchen floors – it’s also becoming a staple of kitchen backsplashes. Tile is a great choice for backsplashes due to its resistance to spills and splatters. Many homeowners opt for creative and adventurous patterns with their kitchen backsplashes and often match their tile backsplash to the tile countertops.
Modern technology has led to resurgence in glass tiles. They can be breathtakingly beautiful additions, especially in bathrooms and kitchens. Glass tile is becoming increasingly popular as a decorative accent and as a backsplash centerpiece.
