Ceramic tile is the most well-known option and is popular in both residential and commercial settings. There are multiple sizes, shapes, colours, and patterns from which to choose. Ceramic tile resists water and heat, and can withstand moderate levels of traffic. It is also a budget-friendly option for those who are price conscious. If you are looking to add style to your home, ceramic tile is a great option. Ceramic tile is ideal for indoor settings and not recommended for outdoor use.Shop Ceramic
Porcelain is the second most popular tile option. Porcelain is more durable than ceramic, and is resistant to moisture, heat, and humidity. It can handle anything from heavy foot traffic to changing weather conditions, and it will rarely crack. Since porcelain is typically installed in areas with a lot of moisture, they feature a slip-resistant surface for your protection and peace of mind. Porcelain can be used for both indoor and outdoor applications.Shop Porcelain
Consider exploring our stone tile collection if you are looking for a high-end flooring solution for your home. Stone tiles are quarried and come in slabs, and since no slab is quarried from the same location, each stone tile features a pattern that is unique. Stone flooring is long lasting and beautiful, but can become expensive depending on the size of the area you plan on covering. Most stone options need to be sealed for stain and moisture resistance.Shop Stone
