Some say the kitchen is the heart of the home and the room that reflects the homeowner’s personality. Regardless of the reasons, the bottom line is, you want it to look good.

Here are some of the tile options to consider:
Porcelain & Ceramic Tile
Porcelain and ceramic tile are both great choices for the kitchen. They are durable and can withstand the abuse they may receive in such a busy area with hard pots and pans and hot items. Their glazed finish makes them impervious to just about everything. Because they are available in a wide variety of colors and styles, you can usually find what you’re looking for. Porcelain and ceramic tile manufacturers even make tile that looks like natural stone tile but is much more durable.
Natural Stone Tile
Natural stone tile includes granite, marble, travertine, slate, limestone and more. While natural stone provides a beautiful look, it is less durable than some other choices. It requires more maintenance and can chip and scratch and stain more easily than other types of tile. It is probably better suited for rooms with less traffic and use. Luckily, manufacturers have created tile from other substances that mimic the look of natural stone but also provide the durability.
Glass tile lends a contemporary, look and feel. We have a really great selection of all kinds of glass, glass blends, and glass/stone blends. Glass and glass blends can create a stunning look in your kitchen. If you have a fireplace in your kitchen, they are also great for accenting focal points.
Metal tile gives a contemporary update to any kitchen. Choose from chrome, brushed aluminum, copper, silver, bronze, and more. These tiles come in a variety sizes as well as finishes including raw, low gloss, shiny, brushed, stamped patterns and more. You can create an entire backsplash or sprinkle in a few smaller tiles like the 2” square tiles as unique accent pieces.
