Tile Guide 

Mazzullo & Sons Carpet One Floor & Home in Oneida, NY is here to help you find the perfect tile for your next project. Tile is a very versatile product when it comes to style and application and can allow you to let your creative side out. Tile comes in a range of styles, colors, patterns and more for you to choose from and create a custom look all your own. Our flooring professionals also have an eye for design and can help you make your dream space a reality.

Tiles are made of natural materials like sand, clay, and ground stone and since tile is made with mostly natural materials, it is known as a “green” product. Not only are you purchasing a long lasting floor, but also one that makes a small impact on the environment.

Below, Jim Aaron explains how to choose the perfect tile for your kitchen and bathroom.

Types of Tile 

When you shop with us you can find all types of tiles including porcelain, ceramic, and stone.

Ceramic and porcelain tile are two of the most popular options, and for a few good reasons. The first being they come in a wide variety of styles, and the second they are both durable flooring options. Porcelain and ceramic tile are made from the same materials, but porcelain is classified by its density. Ceramic is a light weight option, and is also budget friendly. Porcelain tile is much denser than ceramic and 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.

Tile Installation

The room you choose to install tile in can help you determine the type of tile you will need for that room. Wall tile and floor tile can have some similarities, but both are specifically made for their own functions. Wall tile is lighter and more absorbent so it can adhere to walls better, whereas floor tile is meant to be wear resistant and long lasting.

After production when the tiles are glazed can help you also determine where that tile can be installed. Tiles with certain glazes are more slip resistant and stain resistant, making them good options for kitchens and mudrooms. Tiles that are denser and have a high moisture resistance are ideal options for places like your bathroom and even outside as a patio or walkway.

Since most tiles are made to be water and wear resistant, they can be installed in several places of your home where other types of flooring are not well suited such as kitchens, mudrooms, laundry rooms, and entryways.
