Tile Guide

Emerson Carpet One Floor & Home in Baton Rouge, LA has you and your home covered when you need tile. Tile allows you to get creative with your flooring in your home. You can have tile installed all over your home as well as your walls and outside of your home. Our flooring professionals are here to help you choose the perfect tile options for your next home project.

Tiles are made with natural materials like sand, clay, and stone. So, not only are tiles durable and naturally water resistant, they are also a green product, perfect for our environmentally conscious customers.

Below, Jim Aaron explains how to choose the perfect tile for your home.

Types of Tile

We have three main tile options to choose: ceramic, porcelain, and stone.

Porcelain and ceramic tile are two common options for both homes and businesses. They are both made from the same materials, but porcelain is different because it is rated by how dense it is compared to ceramic. Both types of tile come in an array of colors, styles, and patterns to choose from. Ceramic is a more lightweight option, and is also budget friendly. Since porcelain tile is denser than ceramic it can resist water and heat better. We also have natural stone tile, and because stone is quarried from different locations, no two slabs are alike which means you can have a truly custom floor.

Other types of tiles include wall and backsplash tile such as glass, mosaic, and sometimes even metal. Wall and backsplash tile is different from wall tile because it is more absorbent, and usually comes in smaller tiles to create unique designs.

Tile Installation

Knowing the room you want to install tile in can help you choose which type of tile you’ll need. Most any tile works well for your walls, but when it comes to floor tile you’ll definitely want a tile that is rated for moisture and wear resistance. If you choose to install tile outside, choose porcelain or stone because of their water resistance abilities and resistance to heat.
