Tile in Waldorf, MD
Tile flooring is an enduring choice popular in both residential and business settings. Water-repellent, durable tile represents endless potential and incredible staying power. It can be timeless or trendy, both indoors and outdoors.
At Avant Garde Carpet One Floor & Home in Waldorf, Maryland, we provide one of the best tile selections in the region. Our collections include floor and wall tiles, backsplashes, shower tiles, bath tiles, heated flooring systems, and commercial tile in all the best tile brands.
Tile flooring is manufactured in various materials and styles. However, the bulk of our tile inventory is made from traditional materials like ceramic, porcelain, and stone.
Ceramic and porcelain are very similar, since both are made from clay, which is then kiln-fired.
Porcelain tile tends to be denser and more waterproof than ceramic, making it the better of the two for outdoor tiling and busy areas. Both can be used in your kitchen or bathroom.
Stone tile adds a luxurious appearance and ongoing value. Stone can be used indoors and outdoors. Since no two stone tiles are alike, you can have a completely custom floor with this tile type. Among the different stones used to make tile are slate, marble, quartz, and granite.
Natural hardwood isn’t the best option for every space or setting. Since ceramic and porcelain tiles are renowned for endurance and ease, wood-look tile is a compelling alternative. Wood-look tile achieves a consistent look in the bathroom or kitchen, particularly where real hardwood is heavily present in other rooms.Advances in digital imaging bring ultra-realistic textures, finishes, and patterns inspired by all the trees of the forest, or finely grained marble. Wood-look tiles come in both plank and traditional shapes, creating a unique, one-of-a-kind composition on the floor or wall. Rest easy knowing that this medium is made with your busy lifestyle in mind. Simply wipe away splatters and spills and get on with the day, knowing that no stains will linger on.
Tile is extremely versatile since most types withstand moisture. A tile backsplash or accent wall looks great in any room. Tile can be installed around your shower, or on your fireplace, as well. Porcelain tile is exceptionally sturdy and dense, making it popular for commercial flooring. Popular spaces for tiling include kitchens, bathrooms, mudrooms, hallways, basements, laundry rooms, and more.
Durability is one of tile’s most beloved attributes. How do you determine your intended product’s durability level? A good place to begin is your tile’s PEI wear rating (Porcelain Enamel Institute), which can accurately gauge your product’s suitability in various settings. A rating of five is the sturdiest tile, for example, while a rating of one or two is best suited for lighter use, such as a decorative accent.
Colorful, enduring, and protective, tile backsplashes are a wonderful alternative to wallpaper and paint. We’re passionate about offering décor solutions that are as beautiful as they are functional. With more tile options available today than ever before, it’s easy to create a backsplash that’s custom-tailored to your space, budget, and style.
Ceramic, porcelain, and glass tile fare well on walls and offer unique options. We can help you create a bold backsplash that incorporates your favorite colors, textures, shapes, and materials. Your tile backsplash is made to last and has the amazing ability to protect your walls as well as it does your floors.
Easy to clean, tile resists cooking splatters, soap scum, grime, and dust. In the rare event that your tile does chip or crack, the affected tile can be replaced individually, as needed – a much less disruptive route than a whole new paint job.
We have indoor and outdoor tile products, with choices to please everyone. As members of a national flooring cooperative, we’re locally owned and offer unbeatable purchasing power, so we can pass lower tile prices onto you.
