Not only can you get tile flooring in a plank format but also a choice of many tile styles from which to choose since it is so popular.
Floor Store, a tile store in Rancho Cordova, CA, has the porcelain or ceramic tile you need for your home improvement project. We carry the latest styles made by top companies like Dal-Tile and American Olean.
Ceramic vs. Porcelain tile
Ceramic and porcelain tiles are made of clay and then hardened in a kiln at a high temperature. More specifically, ceramic is made of coarse clay, while porcelain is composed of fine kaolin clay.
Harder and denser porcelain is superior because of its makeup and the higher temperature it is exposed in the kiln.
Ceramic tile styles tend to be simplistic in color and design; therefore, most plank-like tile floors are made of porcelain.
This durable material resists abrasion and stains, and it is naturally waterproof and rugged enough for high-traffic areas in the home. Like hardwood, porcelain is a long-lasting, high-quality material that adds value to your home.
Floor layout patterns
Because wood-look plank tile flooring is smaller than planks, they work well with the floor layout patterns that are trendy today. Homeowners often choose the herringbone design with a repeating V or W pattern.
Offset tiles revise the traditional grid pattern, while more complex patterns like basketweave, windmill, and chevron add visual interest to a tile floor.
