If you’re looking for the right flooring for any space, you will want the right materials to do so. That is what our flooring stores in Glendale want to set you up with, so let’s take a look at some of our offerings.
Porcelain has always been a popular material when it comes to tiles, and that’s for a reason. It has been used to make tiles since at least the 15th century, continuously proving to be a resistant and durable material that’s harder than ordinary ceramic tiles. And sure, it is a material with a centuries-long history, but recent developments in production have allowed it to be as strong and as accessible as ever. Porcelain tiles have been for walls or floors, commonly well-regarded for their low absorption rate, which protects them from water and temperature damage. Because of this, porcelain tiles are an ideal choice for the flooring of kitchens, bathrooms, and showers, protecting the surfaces and themselves from excessive moisture. The material is additionally very versatile in terms of decoration and styling.
There are as many different kinds of stone tiles as there are tastes and styles, and each one of them has different decorative possibilities. In terms of more polished and elegant options, you have slate, which is dark and sophisticated, marble, which is lighter and classical. If you’re looking for a more natural look, you have limestone, marble’s less polished cousin, travertine, which has a sandier, rougher look, and granite, which evokes the randomized patterns of natural rocks, as well as their uneven coloration. All these stones will each come with their distinctive look, texture, and feeling. Your choice of floor tile will end up determining the general aesthetic of any room, its light distribution, and its temperature.
Now, if you’re looking to tile your outdoor spaces, be it in a patio, a terrace, a driveway, or a courtyard, you will need tiles that are ready to handle it. After all, not all tiles are built for outdoor light, moisture, and exposure. You don’t want to end up picking the wrong options and having to deal with cracked or worn down tiles sooner than you’d hope. You will have to consider both the intended foot traffic and the best material for the surroundings. Tiles that will have a car’s tires go over them will need different strengths than the ones seeing barefoot traffic around a pool. That is why our catalog will have all sorts of different tiles that will be good to use in your outdoor flooring.
