In which room will tile flooring work best?

While ceramic and porcelain tile works well in any room, you should take full advantage of these waterproof materials by placing them in a space that will likely get wet.

Hard-to-stain and scratch but easy-to-clean tiles are an attractive and practical option for a bathroom or kitchen. Various styles that range from dramatic to subtle can be found at our tile store in Wattsburg, PA.

Porcelain vs. ceramic tile flooring

Both porcelain and ceramic tile are placed in the ceramics category since each type is made of natural earthen clay and hardened by heat.

Porcelain tile is made of finer clay and set in a kiln at a higher temperature, so it is denser, harder, tougher, and less porous than ceramic tile. Porcelain is the most durable tile material available today.


Glazed tile can be slippery underfoot, so it's important to note a product's dry and wet Coefficient of Friction. (COF) The DCOF AcuTest, published by tile manufacturers, is the system used to rate the slip resistance of tile flooring.

It has been determined that tile flooring that is walked on when wet, such as in a bathroom, should have a damp DCOF of 0.42 or greater.


Tile flooring stands up to heavy foot traffic and spills, and it doesn't harbor bacteria or absorb odors, so it's ideal for kitchens. Moreover, you can create a unique design with two or more tile styles to boast a one-of-a-kind kitchen floor.

Sweep up dirt and debris daily and mop once a week, and your new floor will maintain its like-new look for years to come.
