Undeniably, the design component with the most impact on your finished project is the tile specification. Tile has the ability to convey mood and energy. It sets the scene for how a space will be used and how people will feel when they are in it. The chosen tile finishes can reflect an individual’s personal tastes or provide a clean canvas to support other design features like art and accessories.
Presently, the world of tile is having a genuine Renaissance. Waterjet technology, digital imaging and accelerated advances in chemistry are just a few areas that are helping to propel porcelain, ceramic, glass and stone tile surfaces to the front of our minds and the top of our wish lists. Visit our tile store in Rochester, NY to see our selection.
Porcelain tile is a dense, high-fired, man-made material, impervious to water absorption and freeze/thaw conditions. It is the preferred choice for tile flooring because of its durability, low maintenance, relative in-expense, and infinite color/pattern variety.
Ceramic tile begins as a clay that is then fired at a lower temperature than porcelain. It’s more commonly used to tile walls and low traffic floors. Today’s handmade ceramic tile manufacturers have taken this timeless guild and elevated it to fine art status.
Glass tile is made from new and recycled materials to make a variety of sizes, shapes, and colors that have many applications. While much of the tile being sold today is neutral, glass tile is a great way to add color and sparkle to a kitchen backsplash or other installation.
Marble, slate, travertine, granite, quartzite, and limestone are all examples of natural stones that are durable, versatile options for tile applications. Suitable for indoor, outdoor, floors, and walls, stone tile is a timeless, beautiful choice for most any design style.
