Tile texture, along with color, adds a unique flare to each room. Here are some of the most common tile textures that are available from Carpet & Tile Mart:

  • Smooth: Smooth tile has a flat, polished surface that is easy to clean and maintain. This type of tile is often used in bathrooms and kitchens for its sleek appearance.
  • Matte: Matte tile has a non-glossy surface that is slightly textured, providing a more natural and earthy look. Matte tiles are often used in rustic or contemporary designs.
  • Polished: Polished tile has a highly reflective surface that adds a touch of glamour and sophistication to any room. This type of tile is often used in high-end spaces such as hotel lobbies and luxury homes.
  • Textured: Textured tile has a three-dimensional surface that adds depth and dimension to a space. This type of tile is often used as an accent or focal point in a room, and can be made from a variety of materials such as stone, ceramic, or glass.

Tile is Tough

Today, most types of flooring have some sort of stain resistance and great durability. Tile exceeds all flooring types, as it is stainproof, scratch proof, and resistant to abrasion. Moreover, it doesn't fade over time and it is waterproof and resistant to fire. With good installation and some of the selection of tiles from Carpet Mart, you could see your tiles last anywhere from thirty to fifty years. Here are the characteristics of tile that makes it tough: 

  • Hardness: Tile is made from natural materials such as clay, stone, or glass that have been fired at high temperatures to create a hard, dense surface. This makes tile extremely resistant to wear and tear from foot traffic, as well as scratches, dents, and other types of damage.
  • Resistance to moisture: Tile is highly resistant to moisture, which makes it an ideal choice for areas that are exposed to water such as bathrooms, kitchens, and outdoor spaces. Moisture-resistant tile is also less likely to develop mold and mildew, which can be a problem with other types of flooring.
  • Resilience: Tile is able to withstand heavy loads and impacts without cracking or breaking, thanks to its inherent resilience. This makes it an ideal choice for high-traffic areas such as commercial spaces and busy households.

Tile is Trouble-Free

Additionally, outdoor tiles tend to repel UV rays and withstand harsh elements, often making them a better choice over stone, porcelain, or concrete. 

Indoor tiles also offer slip resistance and low maintenance. Indoor tiles that are rated for flooring offer great slip resistance. Additionally, indoor tiles are super easy to clean.
