Carefully crafted for several lifetimes of enjoyment, tile is truly a floor for the ages. Adorning the inside and outside of homes and gathering places for centuries, tile goes well beyond any fleeting styles or trends. Renowned for its staying power – not to mention its ability to distinguish your floors and ceilings- tile is always a great choice for your next residential or commercial project. At Chilliwack Carpet One Floor & Home in Chilliwack, British Columbia, we carry an extensive inventory of both indoor and outdoor tile, including tile for kitchen and bath, backsplashes, showers, and wall plank tile. Are you considering tile flooring or wall tile? We have you covered when it comes to tile.
With so many types of tiles to choose from, the thought of picking one can be overwhelming at times. We can help here’s what you need to know about three of the most popular tile types and where to best install the tile.
Ceramic Tile: Ceramic tile is a popular flooring option for many reasons, including the fact that most homeowners are most familiar with the term ceramic. Much of this popularity is attributed to how affordable ceramic is and the vast array of style options. You can choose from many different designs, styles, patterns, and more! You are only limited by your style. These tiles can resist moderate traffic, moisture, and heat. Ceramic tile is ideal for indoor settings and not recommended for outdoor use. A ceramic tile is a great option for your floors as well as your walls.
Porcelain Tile: Porcelain tiles are made from the same materials as ceramic, but they are heated at a much higher temperature. This baking process makes the tiles denser and water-resistant. Porcelain is not only an indoor flooring option but can also be installed outside too. 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.
Stone: In addition to affordable flooring options, we also have flooring solutions for our high-end customers. Stone tiles are completely natural and are quarried in slabs. Each stone tile features unique mineral patterns. Stone flooring is long-lasting and beautiful but can become expensive depending on the size of the area you plan on covering. Most stone tile is rated for indoor and outdoor use and can be treated to be stain resistant.
Backsplash tiling can take your kitchen or bathroom space to the next level. We can help you custom design and install a backsplash that’s completely your own. We have a wide array of tile patterns, colours, textures, shapes, and sizes. Our in-house design team can help you mix and match styles and find the right grout and edging. Whether you want a timeless white subway tile, a serene coastal blue backsplash, or a homey Tuscan farm-style pattern, we have you covered. Our team will also walk you through which tile designs are easiest to sanitize and clean, as well as those that are most crack and stain-resistant.
A large advantage to backsplash tiling is that it protects your vertical spaces in busy, moisture-prone rooms like the bathroom and kitchen. Thanks to its water-repellent, durable nature, tiles will repel splashes, stains, humidity, and more. This is especially useful behind sinks and vanities. Backsplash tiles will also prevent dents and marks from appliances.
Another reason to love backsplash tiling is that it's very simple to maintain. It requires minimal time and work to stay looking beautiful. It’s also easy to install and repair if a tile gets damaged. And because backsplash tiles are made from smaller pieces, it’s usually an affordable home update project.
Truly, there’s a whole lot to love about tile. Made to make a colorful and creative first impression, tile’s vivid shades and textures help distinguish your space. Tile can be traditional, classical, or ultra-modern since new introductions to the tile industry are always offering up more design and application options. It’s 100% customizable, which means it’s easier than ever to create a one-of-a-kind space that’s completely your own.
Tile is one of the most versatile home products. It can be installed on floors, walls, and backsplashes, among other places. Tile flooring is strong enough to handle foot traffic and other impacts, while wall and backsplash tiles are usually smaller and less durable. But wall and backsplash tiles are more designed-focused. Regardless of the type of tile you choose, you can take advantage of a seemingly endless number of looks. If you want the natural looks of wood or stone, you're covered with tile.
Tile is moisture and wear-resistant, so it can pretty much be installed anywhere in the home. It is especially popular in kitchens, bathrooms, and basements, and there are ultra-durable options that can be installed on outdoor patios. We offer some of the best tile installation services in the region. If you are seeking a traditional tile floor, a wood-look tile floor, or a tiled kitchen or bath, we can fulfill all your needs.
