Ceramic and porcelain tile –long-lasting beauty for your home

Tile can be used anywhere in your home for a beautiful unique look. Tile is extremely popular in kitchens and bathrooms because it resists water and does not absorb bacteria or odors. Tile comes from several different types of rock including travertine, slate, ceramic, marble, granite and more. It is available in a wide range of colors, sizes and designs. Your tile will need to be installed on a subfloor that’s smooth, flat and strong. At Standard Tile, we can help you think through your design plans to determine what the best option is for you.

If you’re looking into a durable, waterproof, and stylish installation for your home, you may want to consider adding ceramic or porcelain tile. Regardless of high traffic, tiles can maintain their luster and beauty, making them a great option for busy households. One of the most popular and trusted flooring installations, tile comes with a long list of advantages. Not sure if it’s right for your renovation? Here are some great reasons why stylish tile is a huge hit!

Scratch and stain-resistant

At our tile flooring store, the first thing we'll highlight about tile is it is scratch and stain resistance. These characteristics are a major plus, especially if you live in a house with children and pets that run amok. Hard-wearing and durable, these tiles can also resist heavy loads, fading, heat, and many chemicals.


Thanks to their waterproof capabilities, ceramic and porcelain are the ideal installation materials for rooms that experience significant humidity or moisture. Washrooms, basements, kitchens, and mudroom scan all benefit from a flooring material that is impenetrable to water and other liquid substances. Tiles are the best option for these water prone areas or any other room you’d like to have the extra security of water resistance.

An endless array of style choices

The choices of styles, designs, patterns, colors, and sheens are virtually endless. There are so many options to consider that the only downside to this installation is how hard it is to pick your favorite tile! Also, our tile flooring retailer carries various imitation alternatives, like marble and wood grain.

Easy to keep clean

Porcelain and ceramic tiles, due to their very low water absorption rate, are incredibly easy to keep clean. That means you won’t be wasting so much of your precious time scrubbing and steaming your installation just to get it to look nice. All you’ll need is a damp mop to wipe the tiles down –no sealing, waxing, or polishing necessary!
