There are a number of options available when it comes to selecting the type of flooring you are able to choose from for the flooring of your home. One of the most popular, as well as the most versatile, options would be that of tile flooring. Available in a variety of sizes, colors, and materials, there is a lot to consider when it comes to what you have available to you. Tile flooring is considered to be especially appropriate in certain rooms of the home where moisture is an important consideration, like the bathroom; or for higher traffic areas that require easy cleaning on a regular basis, such as the kitchen.

The beauty of tile is that you are not limited to using it only in your kitchen or bathrooms. Unlike some flooring options, like that of hardwood, which is not necessarily appropriate for all rooms in a home, or for the lifestyles of all homes. Tile allows for more versatility, and may possibly give you much more creative license when it comes to customizing your home.

A subtype of ceramic tile, porcelain is a popular tile choice for many homes. Porcelain is an ideal tile choice for most residential projects, because it has a high quality and level of durability, and there’s an almost limitless potential for design options because of the way the tiles are manufactured. Made from clay and other minerals, porcelain tiles tend to also contain about 50% of something called feldspar, which is a white, crystalline dust or sand that melts into a material that is almost glass like during the kiln-drying process. The feldspar helps to bond all the ingredients of the tile together. Porcelain tile also tends to have less porosity than non-porcelain ceramic tiles.
