Tile Option Info
Porcelain: This material is a denser, less porous and durable option that offers incredible stain and water resistance. Porcelain tile would be a great choice for a shower, since it's made from a finer clay and fired at higher temperatures than standard ceramic tile. This makes porcelain tile stronger, more durable, and less porous than regular ceramic tile; these qualities are important in a shower, since it means that porcelain tile will absorb less water than other types of ceramic tile.
Glazed Ceramic : Glazed Ceramic tile has a hard protective top layer that makes the tiles resistant to water and most stains. Ceramic flooring is extremely tough, and the tiles are difficult to crack. A quality installation can last for hundreds of years if the floor is well-maintained. If a single tile does crack due to a severe impact, the process of replacing a tile is relatively simple.
Travertine: Natural stone has always been considered a luxury . One of these natural stones being travertine, which is a magnificent natural stone from the limestone family. It is famous for its unique appearance, timeless look and versatile pattern and color options. You can use travertine in your bathrooms and keep it safe from harm by choosing the right finish and sealer. First of all, travertine in smooth finish can be slippery if wet, so it is better to avoid placement of such tiles in places like bathrooms and showers. Opt for the honed travertine tile if sleek and refined is your preference otherwise, you can use the naturally textured and rustic looking tumbled travertine tile. These two finishes are more effective in wet places. Once the finish has been selected, a good sealer should be used to properly seal the tiles. This will provide the adequate protection against the absorbent nature of travertine.
Marble: There’s no doubt about it, marble enhances any space, upgrading it to a high quality of luxury. Like many other stone tiles, has very high maintenance requirements. Marble is also porous, which means it can be stained, scratched and worn easily. Although it can be manufactured, marble is originally an organic substance. Much like a snowflake, there aren’t any duplicate patterns. There are many pros and cons to this options, but really it comes down to a homeowners own personal opinion.
Mosaic: Primarily known to be used as decorative accent or design tiles in your shower or tub space. They are generally smaller tiles made up of various materials, including but not limited to glass, natural stone, metal and porcelain. Mosaic tiles also come in many different shapes as well including square, penny round, arabesque, mini brick, basket weave, hexagon, chevron, herringbone, and more! The mosaic tile is a great addition to any tile shower and really gives it that extra, eye catching look! Recommended as a vertical or horizontal "decorative band" on your shower walls or even use them on your shower floor!
