How to find the right tile flooring

Each type of tile flooring has different characteristics. Styles available, durability, upkeep, and water resistance are some of the factors you may want to consider when making a purchasing decision. The flooring specialists at Flooring Express, a tile store in Cooper City, Florida, can help you find the best product for your home improvement project.


Since ceramic is porous, only glazed ceramic tile is waterproof. Typically, this budget-friendly floor covering comes in standard sizes and neutral colors. Sometimes it is paired with colored grout. Ceramic is made of coarse clay that is kiln-fired at a lower temperature than porcelain.


Porcelain is made of fine kaolin clay and is harder and denser than ceramic. It is also inherently waterproof. Color body porcelain tile has a glazed design on the surface and a solid-colored body. Through body porcelain is unglazed, and the entire tile is the same solid color.

Natural stone

Popular quarried stones include marble, travertine, slate, and granite. Most stones are porous, so a stone floor must be sealed and then resealed throughout its lifespan. Installers can advise on the feasibility of heavy stone tile for a particular application.


Glass mosaic tile is installed on the floor and walls to create spa-like bathrooms, and it’s commonly used to design colorful backsplashes. Glass tile captures and then reflects light. Mesh sheet mosaic tile is available in many patterns, colors, and shapes.
