TILE IS A CONTEMPORARY WALL AND FLOORING MATERIAL

 
Stylized and clean, artistic and colorful, and dramatic and sophisticated are a few of the 'looks' that can be achieved with this hard surface. It is often used to create dramatic backsplashes, shower walls, and kitchen and bathroom floors. You can find what you need for any application at Paramount Rug Company. We are a tile flooring store that serves the South Shore and Cape Cod, Massachusetts, area. You can find a wide selection of high-quality products in our Brockton and Hyannis showrooms. We also provide a shop at home service.
 

CERAMIC

 
Ceramic is a favored material that is composed of coarse clay. The clay is molded into various sizes and shapes and then fired in a high-temperature kiln. Ceramic tends to come in neutral colors, and standard square and rectangular sizes are the norms. Unlike porcelain, ceramic is porous, and therefore, it is only waterproof when it is glazed.
 

PORCELAIN

 
Porcelain is a type of ceramic that is composed of kaolin clay. Not only is porcelain made of a more refined clay than ceramic, but it is also fired in the kiln at a higher temperature. Thus, it is harder and denser than ceramic. Colorful porcelain designs are plentiful. Styles that mimic wood and stone are in vogue at this time. Porcelain is the most durable type of tile available today.
 
 
 
 
 
 

COLOR BODY PORCELAIN

 
Color body porcelain is a type of glazed porcelain tile with a decorative pattern or texture on the surface, while the body, or bisque, is a solid color. In contrast, the color on the top goes all the way through an unglazed through-body porcelain type. In general, through-body porcelain is found in solid colors and simple patterns.

GLASS

 
Glass wall tile displays a contemporary look. Sincetranslucent glass reflects light, it creates a bright 'background' that makes a room look larger. While individual ones are a perennial favorite for backsplashes, two-inch and smaller mosaics set on a mesh backing are popular. To create a sophisticated, high-end bathroom, choose mosaic glass tile flooring.
