Types of Tile
Tiles are extremely popular on kitchen and bathroom floors largely because they can withstand moisture and foot traffic. But, did you know that tiles are not only suitable on floors? They can be used on walls, in showers, and even in custom backsplashes. Let the experts at Wrucks Carpet One help you make the perfect tile choice!
Floor tile is without a doubt the most popular flooring option in kitchens, bathrooms, and basements. The tiles will never expand or contract when exposed to moisture, and they also remain heat and stain resistant. Plus, floor tiles feature thick constructions, so they can handle heavy foot traffic.
Compared to floor tiles, wall tiles tend to be softer and less durable. Why? For one thing, wall tiles do not need to support foot traffic or other potential impacts. In addition, wall tiles are usually smaller and more design-oriented. It’s therefore no surprise to see glass tile and mosaic tile on walls.
Given its durability, wall tile should not be used on floors; it simply isn’t strong enough to support foot traffic. But, floor tile can be used on walls.
What about backsplashes? Backsplash tile is very similar to standard wall tile, but it features an even greater emphasis on style and design. Therefore, with backsplash tile, you can certainly create custom, one-of-a-kind backsplashes for your kitchen or bathroom setting.
