Enjoy the beauty of tile flooring

Tile has been a popular building material for centuries, and tile flooring continues to make a stunning design statement.

Come into our tile store in Dunnellon, FL, to explore our inventory, including wood and stone looks, mosaics, textures like pebble and slice honed, and more.

Browse porcelain and ceramic tiles

Something is considered a ceramic tile if it includes clay, even sand, and glass, resulting in every ceramic behaving differently in specific installations. For example, porcelain tile is heavier, denser, ultra-strong, and ideal for heavily foot trafficked floors, both indoors and outdoors. In addition, the large format tile comes in countless colors and designs and is suitable for walls and tub/shower surrounds.

The 4 X 4 high designed, often-glazed squares are best for moderately foot trafficked indoor rooms, as well as walls, backsplashes, counters, and tub/shower surrounds. Mosaics are tiny, durable, often glass-coated and decorative, and trending hot for bathroom floors, while, today, terracotta tiles are being used just as much for indoor use as well as out. This is most likely because they work so well in rustic farmhouse decor, another craze.

Subway tiles are the formerly all-white rectangles that now come in all shapes, sizes, and colors. These can be used in indoor, low-traffic rooms, like the bedroom. Whatever your style, add some "Wow!" factor to your design with Listellos, bands of border tiles used as accents.

Shopping for tile floors

The right or wrong tile flooring can impact your project, so be sure you choose the right type. There's a big difference between a wall or floor tile; this is marked on the box and tells your flooring expert exactly how you plan to use it. Wall tiles are thinner, not able to withstand the weight of foot traffic, and more slippery and, although you can use a floor tile on the wall, it's never recommended to use wall tiles on the walking surface. 

Look also at class or category, which is also on the box. This is a one-to-five system developed by the Porcelain and Enamel Institute that, as the numbers increase, so does the strength. For example, Class 1 refers to an indoor wall tile, while Class 4 is for heavy foot trafficked residential rooms, even some light commercial applications, and can be used outside.
