Tile Flooring in Florida
Throughout history, tile has been gracing homes, businesses, and public spaces, and today, there are more ways to enjoy tile than ever before. Then and now, one thing has been constant: tile’s amazing staying power continues to dazzle us, offering us options for both indoors and out. At Carpet One Floor & Home of Central Florida we’re your regional tile experts and can help match you with the perfect products to take on your unique style, while holding up against the Florida heat.
While it’s impossible to include a complete list of every single tile being offered today, there are some universal truths. Tile’s traditional favorites are generally comprised of ceramic, porcelain, or stone. Ceramic and porcelain tile are cut from the same cloth: in fact, both are formed from natural clays, which are then kiln fired. Porcelain tile is fired at a hotter setting, so it is much denser. Choose porcelain over ceramic for outdoor uses, although both are durable and resist scratches. Stone tile can be made from a number of organic minerals, and can be used indoors and out.
Today, there are tile options suitable for all types of settings, uses, and styles. Tile is generally resistant to moisture, and is very low-maintenance. For those situations where extra protection is needed, there are many types of 100% waterproof tiles. With all the on-trend colors, patterns, designs, and textures available, it’s easy to customize your tile composition. There are even tiles that look and feel exactly like natural hardwood, allowing you to enjoy this timeless style regardless of how high the humidity levels creep.
Tile is inherently enduring, but with so many different types to consider, it can be challenging to narrow down your options. We recommend paying careful attention to your tile’s PEI rating when it’s time to determine function capabilities. This handy tool, created by the Porcelain Enamel Institute, hints at how flooring will fare any respective setting. Sturdy tiles would merit a “5” rating; while a “1” rating is for products intended for fashion rather than function.
