  • Decorative

Where to Use Porcelain Tile

Shower walls in bathrooms, backsplashes in kitchens, entryways and hallways are all excellent areas to consider porcelain tile. Porcelain tile is also heat-resistant making it a beautiful compliment to fireplaces and hearths.


As one of the most durable varieties of ceramic tile available, porcelain floor tile can stand up against most major stresses and is perfect for moderate to high traffic areas and commercial settings. Exterior rated porcelain tile is also a good option for outdoor spaces like patios, pools and gardens.


Textured porcelain tile is also a wonderful option for areas that need functional beauty. After all, there’s something special about the tactile aspect of porcelain flooring that makes a design seem almost three-dimensional. From a subtle wood grain tile to an interesting geometric pattern, non-slip textured porcelain tiles are ideal for mudrooms and front door areas that get wet or muddy. 


How to Choose Porcelain Tile Flooring

Porcelain tile is a good option for incorporating elegant or sophisticated aesthetic features into a room without cluttering or overwhelming the décor. Tile can give you that pop of color you are looking for, the perfect counterbalance to grand spaces or a subtle rustic charm. When choosing porcelain tile for your home consider:


Rating – from light to heavy traffic, porcelain tile has a rating for 

each space in your home or commercial project. Ask your 

Classique professional to guide you.


Color – you’ll find tile in almost any color, decoration, and design you could want 

from bold to neutral. Consider your tastes and style to 

create a beautiful space you really love.


Finish – different finishes and glazes change the beauty

and function of tile in a room and how it reflects light. 

High gloss, matte and natural looks create interesting

accents that harmonize a room.


Pattern – with a myriad of interesting ways to arrange your tile,

 even a simple rectangle can be set brick style, straight set or in a herringbone pattern to give

 a different look and feel.


Texture – textured tile can be made to look like tumbled

stone or wood grain, or installed in patterns that enhance

and pull together a room. 


Shape – there are endless possibilities with porcelain 

tile shapes. Beyond the classic standard shapes, many non-standard

 shapes such as rhomboids and hexagons are a 

perfect complement to your home decor.
