Versatile ceramic tiles can be installed on floors and walls

Ceramic and porcelain are common flooring and backsplash materials. The versatile tiles do not harbor dust or pollen so they promote a healthy environment. What's more, the extremely tough and hard to crack tiles can be installed in any room of the house. First, tiles are glued to the backer board or installed on top of cement and then joined together with grout. A.W. Bergey & Sons Inc. is a tile retailer that has a showroom in Harleysville, Pennsylvania. We offer superior brands that are both stylish and practical.

Ceramic flooring

Ceramic tiles, which come in many shapes and sizes, are made of clay and then fired in a kiln at high temperatures. This material is porous, and thus, tiles installed in kitchens and bathrooms are usually glazed. Tiles often come in solid colors, and earth tones are common. In contrast, popular ceramic subway tiles are stark white. Tiles can be enhanced with colored grout.

Porcelain flooring

Porcelain is a type of ceramic that is inherently waterproof. It is denser, harder, and tougher than ceramic, and it can withstand heavy traffic throughout its long lifespan. It is more costly than ceramic, but worth the extra expense since it is the most durable tile flooring available. Tiles come in bold colors and subdued hues. Varied patterns include wood look and stone look.

Ceramic backsplash

An easy to clean and maintain ceramic tile backsplash complements ceramic tile flooring. Regardless of where it is placed, glazed ceramic is a desirable material because it resists stains and repels water. It is also heat resistant so the steam from the shower or a boiling pot causes no damage. Scratch-and dent-resistant ceramic is naturally resistant to mold and mildew growth.

Porcelain backsplash

Like a ceramic backsplash, a porcelain backsplash gives a kitchen or bathroom an upscale look. Mosaic tiles in numerous shapes are popular, and glossy white and bright color designs are particularly striking. To create an eye-catching backsplash, focus on color, size, shape, pattern, and texture. A full-wall backsplash may be a good idea, especially in a small room.
