Top Tile Flooring Options for DFW Homes

Tile flooring can enhance the beauty and function of your home flooring. This is because it is a very dependable type of flooring, that comes in a variety of colors and styles. Whether you’re renovating your home or choosing floors for a new home, choosing the right type of tile is important.

From natural stone to ceramic and porcelain tiles, we have a wide range of options that are sure to meet your needs.


Exploring Different Types of Tile

Tile flooring is well loved because it is versatile and durable. This makes it a popular choice with homeowners in the DFW area. Here’s a look at some popular types of tile:

  • Porcelain Tile: Is known for being durable and water resistant. Porcelain floor tiles are perfect for high foot traffic areas in your home. Since porcelain has a lower porosity, they are a great option for both bathroom floors and the kitchen backsplash.
  • Ceramic Tile: These are often grouped together with porcelain, but they are usually softer and less durable. Ceramic is good for lighter foot traffic areas, because it isn’t as strong as porcelain. Though they may not be a great choice for a high traffic area, they are still stain resistant and easy to clean. They are a great choice for lighter traffic areas and backsplash.
  • Natural Stone Tile: Marble tile, travertine tile and other natural stone tiles are great options as well. They bring a touch of elegance and uniqueness to any room. Since each piece is slightly different in pattern and color, you can be sure that no two floors are exactly alike.
  • Glass Tile: You will typically use this in smaller areas like kitchen backsplash or on shower walls. Glass tiles add a modern look and can help brighten up a room. This is because there are reflective properties with glass tiles.

Benefits of Tile Flooring

Choosing floor and wall tiles for your DFW home comes with many benefits:

  • Durable: One benefit of tile is that it is tough and can handle all of the wear and tear that comes from daily life. It does a great job of naturally resisting scratches and stains and is an obvious choice for high-traffic areas.
  • Water Resistant: Most tile is water resistant, with porcelain offering the most water resistance. Since it naturally resists water, it is ideal for bathroom floors, kitchen areas, mudroom areas and entryways.
  • Easy to Maintain: To easily keep your tile floors clean, we suggest regular sweeping and mopping. That is all it takes to keep them looking clean and new. Since tile has grout lines, those can require a little extra upkeep to prevent discoloration. There are sealant products that can help maintain the appearance of the grout lines.
  • Health Benefits: Tile does not harbor allergens or bacteria. This makes it a great choice for those concerned about indoor air quality. If you suffer from allergies, choosing tile may be a wise choice, since it won’t hold onto dust and debris.

Installing Tile Flooring

Professional installation is very important for achieving the best results with tile flooring. Here’s what you need to know about tile installation:

  • Preparation: You need to make sure that the subfloor is prepared properly. This is to make sure that its capable of supporting the tile floors. Our installation team will assess your subfloors and prepare them. This process might involve the use of backer boards or other materials to create an ideal base for your new floors.
  • Installation: There are different adhesives and methods used to install tile. This can depend on the type of tile you are using for your floors. For example, natural stone might have different setting materials than ceramic or porcelain. We will ensure that the correct setting material is used for the job.
  • Finishing Touches: Applying grout and sealant is an essential part of the installation process. This is to make sure that the tile surface is protected from moisture and stains. You will want to trust an experienced professional to make sure these steps are followed properly.

Tile Design Tips

Here are a few things we recommend when you are considering upgrading your tile floors:

  • Scale and Proportion: Larger tiles can make a small room appear bigger, while smaller tiles, like subway tile, are great for detailed designs.
  • Color and Pattern: Choose colors that complement your home’s overall style. Consider using darker grout lines for a dramatic effect or lighter ones to create a seamless look.
  • Slip Resistance: For areas like bathrooms and kitchens, choosing tiles with slip resistance is a key safety feature.
  • Coordination with Home Decor: Ensure your new tiles complement the overall design theme of your home. Consulting with a professional interior designer can help you make choices that fit seamlessly with your existing decor.
