Tile is a ‘whole home’ flooring material

Tile is a ‘whole home’ flooring material

Floor tile is durable and waterproof that works well in every room. Colorful abstract and geometric designs are numerous, and stone and wood-look designs are available, too. City Tile & Floor Covering is a tile store in Murfreesboro, TN, that carries a variety of ceramic and porcelain tiles suitable for every home space.

Moisture-prone rooms

Tile is often installed in moisture-prone areas like mudrooms, bathrooms, laundry rooms, and kitchens. Porcelain is a naturally waterproof material, while ceramic is waterproof when glazed. The two materials are made of different types of clay hardened in a kiln at different temperatures, and because of the differences, porcelain is the better material.


Ceramic and porcelain floor tile can be installed in basements, but it's a good idea to invest in a radiant heating system at the same time. Tile is a great heat conductor, so under-the-floor heat is an excellent option for other rooms. Usually, tile is glued down to the cement subfloor with an adhesive, grout is placed around each tile, and the floor is covered with a water-barrier sealer.

Bedrooms and family rooms

More and more homeowners are opting to place floor tile in non-traditional areas of the home like bedrooms and family rooms. In addition, room decor is often enhanced with area rugs, including layered rugs made of different materials. A solid-colored sisal rug paired with a smaller and more colorful nylon rug is a good option.
