Types of Tile
Hawaiian Carpet One Floor & Home in Kahului is your local leader when it comes to tile. We offer a great selection of tile brands, including popular names such as Daltile and Bedrosians.
As part of our selection, we offer ceramic tile, porcelain tile, and stone tile.
The three types of tile are ceramic, porcelain, and stone. Ceramic and porcelain are popular in home settings such as kitchens and bathrooms, mainly because they can handle moisture. Both ceramic and porcelain can be installed on floors, walls, and backsplashes.
Natural stone tile is also durable, but it is better-known for its natural appearance. As such, stone can add value to your home.
Ceramic tile is probably the most popular type of tile.
It can handle moisture and heat, so it is suitable for
kitchens, bathrooms, and other indoor settings.
What's great about ceramic is its design versatility.
There are simply so many different sizes, shapes,
and patterns available, so nothing is considered off limits.
For the most part, porcelain tile is the same as
ceramic, but it is harder and denser. As a result,
porcelain tile is more durable than ceramic. It can
handle extreme moisture and foot traffic, and it
also can be installed outdoors. Porcelain is unlikely to crack even when exposed to changing weather conditions.
If you're looking for natural style, be sure to consider stone tile. Unlike ceramic and porcelain, stone tile is made from real stone and nothing else.
So, stone offers a variety of authentic, one-of-a-kind looks. Stone tiles can be treated and sealed to handle scratches and spills.
