Tile flooring in St. Croix Falls, WI from Cascade Flooring

Which tile flooring products are best for the kitchen?

If you love design, you’ll love tile flooring. Not every tile works in every installation. The right or wrong type will impact your remodeling.

Kitchens are considered essential rooms in the house. Tiles need to be highly functional and stylish.

Porcelain: the best choice for kitchens

Porcelain and ceramic tile are often used interchangeably, but that needs to be corrected. Porcelain is a type of ceramic, but the two behave very differently.

Its composition also includes sand and glass fired at higher temperatures. As a result, it's heavier, denser, and non-absorbent, ideal for floors in busy rooms like the kitchen.

Consider porcelain when you are exploring tile in St. Croix Falls, WI. Porcelain comes in many colors and styles and can be made to look like anything, including wood and stone.

Mosaics: tiny but durable

Mosaics can be used on any floor, including the kitchen. They can be the field tile or an accent.

Mosaics are tiny but durable, glass-coated, and highly decorative. They are also resistant to mold and mildew.

Category 3 ceramics

Each type has different strength and absorbency levels. Therefore, they are categorized on the label as C-1 or above.

The higher numbers indicate greater strength. The best one for residential use is C-3 or C-4.

When you walk into our tile flooring store, read the labels thoroughly. Also, tell the staff exactly how you plan to use it.
