Complete your home with ceramic & porcelain

A new floor covering should meet all the requirements your household necessitates, but it should also be an excellent part of your overall decor as well. When functionality and design come together in one material, it makes shopping a whole lot easier.

Both ceramic & porcelain are excellent in a variety of areas. They both offer excellent durability, are dense and hard, and have a great resistance to water. For this reason, they are a great addition in the bathroom, even inside the shower itself. If used this way, be sure to speak with your flooring professional about adding a slip resistant glaze for safety purposes.

Porcelain is the perfect material if you’re looking for something with an all natural look. Made with the highest quality clay, it offers a through body color scheme that helps to mask scratches or cracks that may occur. You can even choose each tile separately to make sure you have the exact look you want for your home.

Ceramic is also made with high quality materials, but does not offer the through body color that porcelain does. They are, instead, covered with brightly colored glazes and can be used for extensive design. They can be cut into a wide array of sizes and shapes, allowing you to create any look you like, even intricate mosaics for true originality.

Ceramic tiles

No one can argue the long term durability of Ceramic tile. It is not for everybody, especially those that like to lounge around on the floor and watch television. But for those who are looking for a nearly final flooring solution, ceramic tile is the perfect choice. At Jamies Carpet Shop we carry the largest selection of imported and domestic tiles, and because of our volume buying power, our prices simply can’t be beat.

And if you want to step outside of the standard tiled floor, Jamies Carpet Shop tile installers are renowned for making a ceramic tile floor look more like a piece of artwork than something that’s meant to walk on. Whether you’re looking for a durable solution or a floor that makes a profound and beautiful statement, Jamies Carpet Shop has the right ceramic tile floor for you.

Why ceramic?

  • Affordability: Thanks to the recent advancements in technology, ceramic tile is no longer affordable to just the "Rich and Famous". Today, ceramics are in the same price range as other better quality floor coverings.
  • Affordability: Because ceramic tile is considered a permanent product, the Real Estate Appraisal Guide lists it as a product that increases the resale value of your home; therefore, it is an investment, rather than a cost.
  • Cost: Ceramic tile is less expensive than most alternative products. While the initial cost may be higher than some, in the long run it is less expensive because it does not have to be replaced every few years.
