Tile in Huntsville, ON
Tile is a popular home flooring solution because of its natural resistance to moisture. In warmer climates, homeowners choose to floor their entire home in tile. In colder regions like ours, however, tile is best suited for laundry rooms, kitchens, or bathroom in most cases. New tile trends are helping to expand where in your home you can install tile.
Taylor Carpet One Floor & Home is your locally owned tile flooring expert. In addition to porcelain, ceramic, and stone tile flooring we also offer wall tile, backsplash tile, waterproof tile, and even outdoor tile.
We’ll not only help you pick out the perfect tile, but also help you design your space around it.
Best Types of Tiles
The two most common tile options are ceramic and porcelain, although stone tile holds a healthy third place.
Each type of tile boasts its one unique list of perks and features.
- Ceramic tile is one of the most popular tiles because it’s well known and commonly used in kitchens and bathrooms alike. Not only is ceramic tile durable, but it’s also incredibly affordable. There are multiple sizes, shapes, colours, and patterns from which to choose, so no design is impossible! Ceramic tile resists water and heat yet remains strong enough to support moderate foot traffic. If you’re looking to add style to a kitchen or bathroom, ceramic tile is a great option. Certain ceramic tile options can even be used on your walls. Ceramic tile is ideal for indoor settings, but isn’t recommended for outdoor use.
- Porcelain tile is a type of ceramic that’s more durable and is rated for indoor and outdoor use. Porcelain tile is sturdier than ceramic because of the way it’s baked in the kiln during the manufacturing process. It can manage anything from heavy foot traffic to changing weather conditions, meaning porcelain tile will rarely, if ever, crack. Since porcelain tile is typically installed in areas with moisture, they're generally waterproof and feature a slip resistant surface for your protection and peace of mind.
- Stone tiles are quarried and come in slabs. Since no slab is quarried from the same location, each stone tile features a unique pattern. Stone tile flooring is long lasting and beautiful but can become expensive depending on the size of the area you’re covering. The stone tile options in our showroom include marble, granite, and limestone. Our selection includes high-end options that are quarried in the form of slabs, and then cut into tiles. Stone tile can be treated to be stain and water resistant and can even be installed outside of your home.
Tile That Looks Like Real Hardwood
Wood look tiles bring you all the benefits of tile along with the gorgeous appearance of natural wood flooring.
Unlike real hardwood flooring, wood look tile is waterproof and highly spill and stain resistant. You can use it as an alternative to hardwood flooring in humid climates, as well as high-moisture settings.
Wood look tile bathrooms create a gorgeous spa-like setting to relax and reset at the end of a long day. Porcelain and ceramic wood look flooring is also ideal for commercial settings like restaurants, bars, cafes, and downtown offices thanks to the sophisticated and inviting atmosphere it creates. Wood look tile is hypoallergenic, easy to clean, and you can choose extra slip-resistant options.
We carry wood look tile in the form of long planks, as well as traditional square shapes. Beyond flooring, we also have wood tile backsplash, wood look tile shower materials, and more.
Where Else Can I Install Tile?
With options for a full range of spaces and styles, tile can truly be installed anywhere.
Modern tile has beautiful and reliable options for every taste, including classic and contemporary selections. There are plentiful colours and patterns to add distinction to each and every tile installation.
Since tile comes in such a variety of designs, let your personality stand out by installing your favourite products. You can dramatically transform a room with the right tile. Subtle pops of style like accent walls can make a dramatic difference.
