Formed using natural clays, which are then glazed and fired, ceramic tile is bold and colorful, making it a wonderful choice for wall or floor accents. The textured ceramic varieties also bring added slip resistance, making them a great addition to the bath or shower area.Shop Ceramic
Porcelain tile - which is a type of ceramic that is fired at a higher temperature - is denser and thus considered more moisture resistant. It is a popular choice for backsplashes, among other spaces.Shop Porcelain
Stone tile is made using natural minerals like marble, granite, quartz, and slate. Stone tile is extremely durable and can go both indoors and outdoors. Since each stone is completely unique, this tile is a great way to distinguish your home or office.Shop Stone
