Tile Guide

Tile is without a doubt one of the most versatile products for home settings. It’s available in a seemingly endless number of styles and designs, and it also can be installed pretty much anywhere in the home. We at McDonald Carpet One Floor & Home in Boulder are therefore happy to offer one of the area’s best selections of tiles. We, for example, have traditional floor and wall tiles, and we also have decorative tiles that are great for custom designs.

Popular Tile Options

For floors, ceramic tile and porcelain tile is most popular. Both ceramic and porcelain are water resistant and strong, and they also remain easy to clean and maintain. Stone tile is also a suitable flooring option, and compared to ceramic and porcelain, it offers more natural style and character.

What about walls? Wall tile typically has a ceramic or porcelain construction, but these tiles tend to be smaller and less durable than floor tile. Nonetheless, wall tile can be installed in kitchens and bathrooms. For some extra style, you can add decorative tiles to walls. Decorative tiles, such as glass tile and mosaic tile, are definitely design-focused.

Decorative tiles are perfect backsplash tile options as well. You can use glasses and mosaics to add unique style to your custom backsplashes, and you can certainly combine these with metals, stones, and anything else you have in mind. Be sure to work with our talented designers to make your design dreams a reality!

Tile Installation

Where can tile be installed? For the most part, tile can be installed anywhere in the home. And, there are durable porcelain tile options that can be installed on outdoor patios. Tile, however, is most popular in kitchens and bathrooms. Kitchen tile and bathroom tile are perfect for floors and walls, and, as we mentioned before, they can be used to create custom backsplashes.

Tiles are usually difficult to install, but fortunately we work with teams of skilled installers who can handle any and every project. We’ll work with you to choose the right grouts and glazes, and we’ll be sure that the end result is exactly what you had in mind.
