Have a small room you want to look bigger? Use a trellis pattern with color-matched grout to enlarge its appearance. How about a large room that could use some visual trickery to break up a monotonous expanse of floor? Blend colors in a lacework pattern with contrasting grout to add texture and interest.

Selecting your tile

Floor and wall tiles can be made out of many different types of materials. Each one offering it’s own special characteristics to your project.


Porcelain Tile


The densest of all tile types.
Color goes all the way through
the tile. Withstands temperature
extremes. May be used outdoors


Glazed Tile


Coated with glass-forming minerals and ceramic stains. Available in finishes such as matte and semi-gloss. Stain- and moisture-resistant. Ideal for food preparation surfaces such as countertops.


Ceramic Mosaic



Generally 2" x 2" or smaller. Offers great potential for the use of two or more colors in a tile design.


Natural Stone

Select from the choicest stone from the finest quarries in the world. Now finding your favorite granite, marble, travertine, limestone and slate options is as easy as making a call to the name you already trust for ceramic tile; Daltile.


Unglazed Quarry Tile

Hard and dense with a uniform composition. Available with various surface treatments and textures. Does not offer as much protection against stains as glazed tile. Often used outdoors.

 

Get your questions answered to some of the most frequently asked questions.

  • If I drop something on my kitchen floor, is it going to crack the tile?
    It depends, ceramic tile is very durable, if you drop a glass or dish, the glass or dish will most likely break, the tile will probably chip or crack
  • Why can some of the semi-gloss colors be used on counter tops, when others cannot?
    Countertop applications are more susceptible to scratching because of their daily use, and scratching may be more noticeable on darker colors.
  • Can ceramic tile be used outdoors?
    To be used outdoors, the tile must be frost proof and unglazed for floor use. Make sure the absorption rate is 0.5% or less
  • What type of tile can be used around a fireplace?
    Any tile can be used on the face of a fireplace. I would not recommend putting the tile directly In the firebox.

Routine Care Of Ceramic Tile

Contaminants and spills on a glazed ceramic tile are, generally, easier to clean than other, more impervious surfaces. Glazed tile products should be cleaned routinely with an all-purpose, non oil-based household or commercial cleaner. The product chosen should also be grout joint cleaning compatible. The type of product may vary depending on the tile application and use. A multipurpose spray cleaner, which removes soap scum, hard water deposits, and mildew designed for every day use, can be used on wall tile areas in residential baths and showers

The entire area should be cleaned and scrubbed with cleaner solution through the use of a cotton mop, cloth, sponge, or non-metallic brush. The entire area should be rinsed with clean water to remove any cleaning solution residue. Remember that you should sweep or vacuum floor areas prior to cleaning to remove any dust or debris. Routine cleaners should never contain acids or ammonia. Acids can damage the grout and the glazed surface of the tile, and ammonia can discolor the grout.

Unglazed tile should be cleaned routinely with concentrated tile cleaners that have a neutral pH for safe regular use. These cleaners are better suited at removing grease, oils and normal spills from unglazed products. Again these products will vary depending on the application, amount of traffic and the use. The product chosen should also be compatible with cleaning the grout joints at the same time.

Removal of Sealers/Waxes/Floor Finishes:
If you need to remove a topical sealer or floor wax from a ceramic tile you should use a Tile Sealer & Adhesive remover. Always test a small area first. Apply a liberal amount of undiluted sealer & adhesive remover to a manageable area. Allow setting without drying until coating or residue softens. Reapply if necessary until sealer softens and can be removed. If necessary, agitate with white nylon scrub pad. Wipe up the residue with a cotton towel or sponge. Rinse thoroughly with clean water. Do not use on natural stone products.
