Ceramic tile is suitable for every square inch of the home you design. You know ceramic tile as the classic choice in kitchens and bathrooms for easy cleaning (a little water is often all you need) and the ability to withstand moist and high-heat environments (such as the shower or the cooktop area and backsplash). Ceramic tile is also the cost-effective choice for common areas, decorative walls, and outdoor applications with the strength to take on your family life. Your design will resist stains, damage, and rough and tumble wear for a lifetime.
Add maximum compatibility to your design using ceramic tile. It is ideal for pets and people, offers the best indoor air quality, no volatile organic compounds or toxic chemicals, is hypoallergenic, mold and bacteria resistant, and the safety of all family members is secure with slip-resistant options.
Another great durable option for the home is a rigid core luxury vinyl. Vinyl has come a long way over the years not only with realistic visual imaging, but in durability as well. Using a rigid core vinyl will result in a beautiful, durable, quiet and comfortable floor that takes little time to install. Since the core is thicker than standard vinyl flooring, it allows for a floating installation over almost any material (existing glue down vinyl, tile, concrete, hardwood, etc.). With it’s scratch resistant wear layer, vinyl can stand up to the most active households and is scratch & stain resistant even to pet traffic. The tight interlocking system makes it completely waterproof, and with an attached pad the product can dampen sound by 30%, making it a quieter and softer step than tile!
