Ceramic and porcelain tile flooring sparks creativity

 
In the past, porcelain and ceramic tile flooring were primarily installed in kitchens and bathrooms. But today, many homeowners are opting to place the tile in other living spaces because styles are appealing and functionality is excellent.
 

Ceramic flooring

 
Ceramic tile is often solid in color or simple in design. The flooring is available in many shapes and sizes, but square and rectangular tiles in standard sizes are most common. Budget-friendly ceramic tiles are best for medium traffic areas are waterproof only when glazed. 

Porcelain flooring


While ceramic tile is made of coarse clay, naturally waterproof porcelain tiles are refined clay hardened in a kiln at a higher temperature. As a result, ceramic is very serviceable, but denser and harder porcelain is superior. Porcelain is the most durable tile material available, and thus, you can expect your new floor to last many decades. 

Wood-look porcelain


Porcelain tile flooring mimics wood and is popular because it can be installed in moisture-prone spaces inappropriate for hardwood. In general, this wood-look flooring is rectangular and more petite than planks in size. What attracts many homeowners to this floor covering is its ease of use when layout patterns create a focal point in a room.

Layout patterns

 
The retro-inspired checkerboard layout pattern looks great in contrasting colors, including classic black and white. Basketweave, chevron, and herringbone are just a few more perennial favorite flooring patterns. In addition, creative homeowners update signature looks using mosaic tiles, often combined with larger tiles or non-traditional tile shapes like octagons.
 

Mosaic tiles

 
Mosaic tiles are often square in shape and 2-inches or less in size. Porcelain and ceramic mosaic tiles:
  • Usually have a mesh backing, so installation is less time-consuming.
  • Can be combined with mosaic tiles made of other materials such as glass or stone.
    If you favor using only mosaic tile mesh sheets to create your new tile flooring, consider opting for the timeless penny-round design.
