Which tile is best for your home renovation?

Whether you’re wondering which tile is best for your bathroom, kitchen, flooring or backsplash, Paul Foster and Aaron Brown of River City Tile Company are here to guide you in the right direction. 

Tune in to find out the difference between ceramic, porcelain and cement tile, and get tips on how to choose the best product for your renovation project. 

When it comes to choosing the best tile products for a home, we love to walk our clients through the process. And yes, it’s a process! 

If you’re thinking of installing tile there are a few key questions that will ultimately guide your decision on which tile is best. Before you head to the store, consider the following:

What style are you going for?

There are so many design options for tile these days. The tile you choose for a clean, simple look will be different than what you would choose for a weathered, more unique feel. 

Do you need tile in multiple areas?

Location is everything when it comes to choosing the design elements in your home, including tile! The tile product that’s perfect for your kitchen may not fit well in your bathroom, so think about how you’ll piece those together to ensure your entire home flows well. 

What maintenance level are you comfortable with? 

Like everything you purchase for your home, you’ll need to be aware of the maintenance requirements. Does the tile need to be sealed? How fragile is it? Is it easy to keep clean? You’ll get a different answer depending on the tile product you choose.
