Why Floridians love tile floors

There's nothing like being able to stay cool in the hot blazing sun! That's exactly what tile flooring does; it's a great heat conductor so if the room is cool, it will draw heat away from your body, resulting in a chillier feeling.

That keeps energy costs down as well, and who doesn't like that? Also, tile is completely waterproof. In fact, for a long time, it was the only flooring material that was impervious to liquid, and in a stormy-prone, subtropical climate like Florida, that's a big advantage.

What's the difference between porcelain tile and ceramic?

Porcelain is made of clay, sand, and glass, fired at higher temperatures. That makes it heavier, denser, and better for flooring in high traffic areas like the kitchen.

It's also waterproof whether or not it's glazed and can withstand weather so people also use it on walkways, patios, decks and poolside.

A large-format, it can be made to look like anything, including wood and stone. Many find it to be a great solution for the wood flooring in the bathroom they always wanted, but couldn't have because of wood's moisture challenges.

Others find it ideal as stone because the fewer grout lines give it a more continuous, quarried look.

Ceramic tile is thinner and highly designed. When you walk into a tile store, you'll be pleasantly shocked by the colors, patterns, designs, shapes, and sizes.

Ceramics come glazed and unglazed, but it does need to be glazed to be waterproof. It is thinner but tough, and best for floors in low traffic areas in interior areas only. You'll also see it as backsplashes and accent walls.

All tile is durable and easy to clean. It's probably best to have it installed professionally as it can be heavy, unwieldy, and requires special saws for cutting.
