Choosing Your Tile
Ceramic vs. Porcelain
While ceramic tile offers a wide selection of colors, textures, and styles, porcelain tile is more durable, water resistant, and works for covered exteriors.
Size & Pattern
Smaller tiles can help a room feel less constricted, while larger tile brings order to open spaces. Likewise, patterns are best used in proportion to the space.
Form & Function
Ideal for kitchens and bathrooms, tile resists scratches, moisture, bacteria, and odors. Plus, it’s a beautiful design choice for countertops, backsplashes, mosaics, and walls.

Care & Maintenance Tips
After sweeping or vacuuming, damp mop tile with water only. Glazed, unglazed, stone, glass, and soft clay tiles require different cleaning agents.
Cover entrances with floor mats to prevent corrosives from being tracked in. Mats over frequent standing areas (like a kitchen sink) can help reduce tile wear.
Attach felt or protective pads to furniture legs, to reduce scratching and pressure. Add them to outdoor metal furniture, which can cause rust and staining.
