Backsplash Tile

Wall tile is a more durable option than paint or wall paper. Wall tile, or backsplash tile, is a great way to break up a long boring wall with something stylish and eye catching. It also protects your walls from grease splatters behind the stove top. Wall tile is incredibly easy to clean and very easy to design, meaning you can choose a totally custom look for your space.

Ceramic, Porcelain, and Stone

The three most popular tile options are ceramic, porcelain and stone. Each is suitable for home settings and even most commercial settings.

Ceramic Tile

Ceramic tile is one of the most common tiles used in both residential and commercial settings. Ceramic tile is perfect for both kitchens and bathrooms, is light weight and comes in several different colors, patterns, and designs. Ceramic tile is also eco-friendly because it is made with natural materials such as clay and sand. When covered with the right glaze, ceramic can be incredibly resistant to scratching, making it a great choice if you have pets in your home or for use in high traffic areas.

Porcelain Tile

Porcelain is a type of ceramic tile, but is classified different by how dense it is. Porcelain features water and heat resistant qualities, so you can install it in places like your laundry room and even outside as a patio without worrying about moisture being absorbed and causing cracks. For the best spill protection, choose a dark color, which will hide problem areas between cleanings.
