Expert Advice - Choose the Perfect Tile

Join our very own Jim Aaron, VP of Merchandising for Carpet One Floor & Home, for some information on the three basic types of tile flooring: ceramic, porcelain, and stone.

What Are the Different Types of Tile?

There are thousands of tiles on the market today, but some things remain unchanged: stone, ceramic, and porcelain are still the most popular tile materials. It’s easy to understand why, since all of them are extremely durable, come from natural sources, and have been used to create tile since ancient times. Which type of tile is the right choice for your space? While there’s really no wrong choice here, there are some differences to consider.

Both ceramic tile and porcelain tile are made from kiln-fired clay. While both are extremely durable and can be quite colorful, porcelain tile is a denser product. Both work well both indoors and outdoors.

Since it is made from nature’s strongest substances, stone tile can readily stand up to weather and extreme temperatures. Slate and granite tile is a great choice for the garden walkway, while marble tile can make a dramatic statement as a luxurious indoor floor. Stone is especially exceptional since no two tiles will be exactly alike.
