At Whitt Carpet One Floor & Home in Salem, Virginia, we bring you the best tile selection around town for you and your home. We have trained flooring experts at our showroom to help you choose the perfect tile for your next kitchen or bathroom project. Shopping for tile can be stressful, you want to find something that is the perfect style, size, and color or design while also being durable. So how do you know which one to choose? No stress, whether you just started shopping around or already have a tile in mind We make the tile selection process easy because we have gathered all the information you need to know.
Depending on the room you plan to install tile flooring in, there are different options you can choose from. We carry an array of tile products like glass, mosaic, and others, but the three main types of tile we will focus on right now are ceramic, porcelain, and stone. Ceramic and porcelain are made from a natural clay mixture that is kiln-fired and glazed. Porcelain is fired at a higher temperature to create a denser product. Stone tile, on the other hand, is derived entirely from natural rock slabs. These three types of tiles come in a variety of styles, colors, textures, and sizes, so the possibilities are endless. There remains just one question – which one is right for you?
Great for flooring and walls
More durable than ceramic
Great for indoors and outdoors
Can be expensive
Unique veining and color
Great for high-traffic areas
Great for indoor and outdoor use
Wood-look tile is an incredible innovation in the flooring industry. It combines the gorgeous look of hardwood with the durability and low maintenance of tile. Wood-look tile is a great alternative to traditional wood floors because it can be installed in more places and fairs well in our hot, humid climate. We offer a variety of styles, colors, and sizes of wood-look tile, so if this is something you are interested in, we have you covered.
Tile is for so much more than just flooring. We have tile for kitchen or bathroom backsplashes, as well as for custom tile showers, tubs, and even fireplaces. You can create a uniform look in your kitchen or bathroom by using complementing wall and floor tiles together. For a bolder look, you can mix and match different tiles to create a look truly special.
A tile backsplash is an extension of your countertops up to the base of your cabinets or up to the ceiling. In most homes, backsplashes are installed in kitchens surrounding sinks and stoves. The original purpose of backsplash tile was to protect the walls from water stains, grease splatter, and other damage caused by the things you leave out on your countertops every day, but they have quickly become a way to bring design and class to your home.
The right backsplash will draw attention to the busiest part of your kitchen or bathroom. It can round out textures, colors, and design patterns. You can install backsplash tile along with new countertops or you can install them later on. Tile backsplashes can also be added to bathrooms behind toilets and sinks, and even surrounding showers. You can even choose to install a backsplash in a custom tiled shower as an accent or niche for your shower products. We have the experts here to help you design your next project.
The best tile for a kitchen backsplash is based on your personal style, as well as how much you want to spend. To make the biggest impact we suggest choosing a glass mosaic tile that includes the same color scheme as the rest of your kitchen or bathroom.
