How to find the right tile flooring

Tile is a favored flooring material because it's durable and water-resistant as well as attractive. In addition, tile does not harbor dust or dirt, so it's both environmentally friendly and easy to clean. Tiles are made of ceramic and porcelain, a kind of ceramic. There's a large selection of each type of tile for every decorating style. You can find the tile flooring that is right for your home at Sharon and Son's Flooring & Cabinets, a tile store in Santa Ana, California.


If you're looking for a floor tile upgrade that won't break the bank, consider ceramic tile. It's composed of coarse clay that is hardened in a kiln. Tiles range in size from mosaic to large format. Standard sizes, such as 12-inch x 12-inch, are typical. Often, colors are neutral, and designs are simple. Ceramic tile is durable, but porcelain tile is superior. Porcelain is the most durable tile material available.

Porcelain is a hard and dense material that is made of fine kaolin clay. It's hardened in a kiln at a higher temperature than ceramic. Tiles are available in a wide range of shapes, sizes, colors, and designs. Porcelain tile that mimics hardwood and stone flooring is trendy. Unglazed, or through-body, porcelain is the same color throughout, while glazed, or color-body, porcelain has a pattern on the surface and a solid-colored body.
