Tile needs little introduction. It’s a standard choice for kitchen and bathroom flooring in many homes, and with good reason. Tile is lightweight, durable, easy for a professional to install and simple to maintain. Not to mention, it’s beautiful to look at. Though it makes fantastic flooring, don’t discount tile as a potential material for bathroom or kitchen counters. Indeed, tile has a number of potential applications.


What sets tile surfaces apart? When it comes to floor coverings there are few potential options more durable than tile. This is partially due to weight dispersal and partially to the natural resilience of the material. It is also absolutely fireproof. Not only will it not burn when exposed to open flames, it won’t even give off smoke or fumes. Tile is ideal for both bathrooms and kitchens because of how easy it is to clean. And, finally, it is simply a beautiful material with fantastic color permanence, meaning that it won’t fade over time, even in direct sunlight.
