The 4 Different Types of Tiles and Where to Use Them
Updating the floors of the bathroom or any room in the house? Well, tiles are the way to go. Not only are they so chic, they are also easier to maintain and durable enough to last anyone years of service. But, the question is which tile is the best fit for the job? Well, let’s dig deep into that and learn the types of tiles and where to use them on.  

Generally, there are at least four types of tiles to choose from. Let’s discuss them one by one.
  1. Ceramic Tiles
Arguably one of the most versatile types of tile, the ceramic tile has been chosen by many homeowners because of its durability and ability to withstand foot traffic and moisture as well as affordability. It’s perfect for the bathroom, kitchen, and even the front entrance.
  1. Porcelain Tiles
The more durable cousin of the ceramic tiles, the porcelain tiles are available in a wide array of patterns and colors. Though often more expensive than their cousin, they are one of the prime choices because it can look like anything the imagination can dish out. However, it’s not advisable for DIY projects and needs a professional’s touch to place them.
  1. Glass Tiles
The more glamorous choice, the glass tile holds, out of the four types of tiles,  the highest level of stain resistance and can withstand the wreckage of red wine stains and even the acid from lemon juice. One of the downsides to this tile is that it’s not as strong as other tiles so it chips easily. This makes it perfect for wall placements, away from any falls.
  1. Natural Stone Tiles
Natural stone tiles are, as just what the name suggests, made from natural stones like marble and granite. These two are one of the common but expensive choices to use in order to uplift and really amp up any room they’re placed in. Luxury is the keyword here.

Tiles have been the choice of many homeowners to upgrade their room’s floors and walls. They are the obvious choice because they are reliable and will last anyone a lot of years before the need to replace them. All there is to know is what type and what works best for what room.
