We carry a great selection of tile for your bathroom—read on to learn more about our top picks for your home.
Ceramic and Porcelain
Whether you’re looking for a classic subway design or a large format, modern design, ceramic and porcelain tile are two of the best materials to choose. Both types of tile are made from clay that is glazed and fired in a kiln. They both come in a wide range of shapes, sizes, and colors to help you achieve the perfect look for your bathroom.
Porcelain is technically a type of ceramic and is made from much finer clay and cooked at a higher heat. The resulting tile is only able to absorb up to 0.5% of its weight in water, making it one of the most impervious materials you’ll find. It’s also a much stronger material and will provide you with superior strength, even if you choose tiles upwards of 24 inches in length.
By now you’ve most likely heard of luxury vinyl tile, and it’s no surprise it’s become one of the top flooring choices in New Jersey today. Not only does the 100% vinyl construction make it water-resistant, modern technology combines graphic design, realistic texture, and rugged durability to make incredibly versatile flooring. What’s more, if you want to explore the world of wood-look tile, luxury vinyl plank flooring is a great choice to consider.
Natural Stone Tile
Stone tile has been used around the world for centuries. It’s well known for its strength, classic design, and resistance to water. Whether you choose marble, granite, or slate, you’re guaranteed to have beautiful and long-lasting floors. Natural stone is also a great choice for showers and backsplashes, and these tiles are a great option to create a unique mosaic design that hails back to ancient Rome. Just be aware that natural stone often requires special finishing or treatments that prevent discoloration over time. Depending on the finish you choose, natural stone can also be very slippery when wet, so we recommend a non-gloss surface for safety.
