Sheets of organized tile pieces on a mesh backing, generally used for back-splashes in kitchens and bathrooms. Mosaic tile is most commonly glass, but you can find mosaic sheets in just about any material if you look for it.
Ceramic is one of the most common types of tile because it's both affordable and durable, and it's rather easy to clean and maintain, compared to natural materials. It comes in thousands of shapes and colors.
Porcelain tile is very similar to ceramic tile in design and style. However, porcelain is a bit denser than ceramic, making it a better choice for outdoor applications. The same variety of shape and color exists for porcelain.
Marble tile is arguably the most elegant and refined option available, but as you can guess, it's probably the most expensive. While it is absolutely beautiful, and can add value to your home, it requires the most upkeep.
Natural stone includes a few different types of tile: Limestone, Granite, Slate, Travertine, etc. These options are for those looking for a more subdued, earth-toned, natural look and feel.
Is Tile Flooring a Good Choice?
