For those who are searching for flooring that looks natural, stone tiles won’t disappoint. In addition to being durable, these tiles offer timeless beauty and luxury, with every tile showing its own unique characteristics.
Because stone flooring is made using natural materials that don’t require as many harsh chemicals as laminate flooring or carpeting, it’s an eco-friendly choice. On top of that, this flooring is great for Denver homes because it’s a thermal conductor that can absorb and release heat during the winter, thereby helping to reduce heating costs.
Porcelain can be confused with ceramic, but these tiles have been placed in a kiln at a much higher temperature, and the materials that they’re made of are more refined. Plus, porcelain is denser than ceramic.
You can choose from through-bodied and glazed porcelain tiles that come in a wide range of styles to suit every design scheme. No matter what, you’ll have a durable, lovely floor.
Classic and sophisticated, no two marble tiles are the same. Choose from polished, honed, or sand marble, but keep in mind that this is the most porous of all of the natural stone tile offerings. Also, this flooring does require a bit more care and maintenance than other options, but it’s the top choice if you want an elegant appearance.
You can have your marble tiles treated regularly to prevent stains and damage from moisture and spills. If you spill anything acidic on this flooring, it should be cleaned quickly to avoid corrosion.
Granite tile looks like marble, but it’s denser and harder. Because it’s a natural material, it doesn’t require harsh chemicals to manufacture this flooring, and granite tiles will vary in thickness, grain, finish, and water absorption.
It’s important to purchase granite tiles that are properly sealed, as that will make the flooring highly resistant to heat, moisture, stains, acids, and scratches. This flooring will adapt to all climates, it’s a great heavy-duty choice for indoor and outdoor spaces, and it won’t crack or become damaged in freeze-thaw cycles. For these reasons, it’s a fabulous choice for Denver homeowners that can experience hot summers and frigid winters.
A high-grade alternative to stone tiles, ceramic is a great choice for bathrooms. Plus, because ceramic tiles are made from sand, natural materials, and clays that are molded into shape and placed in hot kilns, they’re considered an eco-friendly and hypoallergenic choice.
While hardwood flooring, laminate flooring, and carpeting can fade over time, ceramic floors will retain their resilience and color even with sun exposure. You can choose from glazed or unglazed ceramic tiles, but most homeowners opt for glazed flooring that’s easier to maintain and more resistant to moisture.
Tile Flooring Installation
Choosing the right tiles for your home is only the first step, as the installation process is also extremely important. With a quality installation, your tile flooring will be long-lasting and look like new for years to come.
Keep in mind that certain types of tile flooring, such as granite, can be difficult to install, and proper subfloor preparation and underlayment is necessary. When not properly installed, tiles can bend and crack, so calling in the experts at Denver Carpet & Flooring is the best way to ensure you’re getting the look you want and the durability you need from your tile floors.
At Denver Carpet & Flooring, we’re committed to providing high-quality flooring products, fast installation, and competitive prices. Our specialists will review your design preferences, functional needs, and current flooring, and then we’ll advise you on the best-fit tile flooring installation.
