Tile is made of stone, ceramic, and luxury vinyl, and the best option for your home depends on many factors. When making a purchasing decision, consider the function of the space and amount of foot traffic. Also, keep in mind that thin and lightweight luxury vinyl, which mimics stone and ceramic, and wood, might be better than heavier natural materials for your application. A large selection of floor tile is available at Jamie's Carpet Shop. In addition, you can visit our tile shop in Amherst, Sandusky, and Elyria, Ohio, or our mobile showroom can come to your home. 
Natural stone 
Several quarried stones are used to create one-of-a-kind floors, and granite is one of the better stones. The durable floor covering, which can last for several decades, tolerates significant foot traffic. In addition, it's stain-resistant and easy to clean. For maximum durability, the floor must be sealed regularly. 
Only glazed ceramic tile is waterproof, while porcelain, a type of ceramic, inherently resists water. Ceramic tile is often found in standard sizes and neutral colors. More costly porcelain, the most durable variety of tile on the market, is available in many styles. In addition, designs that mimic stone and wood flooring are trendy. 
Luxury vinyl 
The best luxury vinyl tile has a thick (20-mil) wear layer to protect the image layer and a waterproof core layer. Flooring with a wood-plastic composite (WPC) core or a stone plastic composite (SPC) core is waterproof. Tiles can be glued to the subfloor or fit together at the edges floating above the subfloor.
