At Mercer Carpet One Floor & Home we’re fully committed to helping you bring your tile dreams to fruition. We carry an expansive inventory of tile and offer creative, custom tile installations. Before you start shopping, let’s spend a moment going over tile basics. Depending on your project, it’s important to select the tile to meet your needs. Not to worry we’ve compiled a quick overview here:
While there’s not enough space here to focus on the many tile types available today, what we can tell you is that our bestsellers are made from ceramic, porcelain, or mosaic glass. We also have stone, glass, and metal tile.
Ceramic tile is made from clay and finished in a hot kiln. It’s one of the more affordable tile options and is often used in bathrooms.
Porcelain tile is also made from clay but is fired at a hotter setting. It’s denser than ceramic and can also be used outdoors.
Mosaic glass tile is most often used for countertops, walls, and backsplashes, but it can be used as flooring in certain settings as well. Available in assorted sizes, mosaic glass tile is easy to clean, and resists mold and mildew. It’s also sustainable since it uses less energy to manufacture than ceramic or porcelain. It can even be made using recycled or reclaimed glass!
The modern tile industry offers up products suitable for all sorts of indoor and outdoor settings. Tile can be tricky to install- especially if you opt for a variety that requires grouting- but once in place, its care requirements are quite minimal. We recommend professional tile installation and offer services onsite.
There are waterproof tiles fit for spa-side, and colorful tiles that give your private spaces the look of an exclusive and exotic retreat. Tile can also be installed as a custom shower, tub surround, on your fireplace, in front of a kitchen island, and as an accent wall.
Just how durable is that new tile you’ve been admiring? We highly recommend paying close attention to the tile’s PEI rating. Created by the Porcelain Enamel Institute, this crucial tool is used to clarify your tile’s respective abilities. Rated on a scale of 1 – 5, the sturdiest tile would obtain a rating of 4 or 5, while those with ratings on the lower end might best be saved for decorative accents.
Offering unlimited opportunities for creativity, tile backsplash might be just what the doctor ordered when it’s time for a wall update. A fully functional alternative to paint or wallpaper, backsplash tile can truly transform.
Since there are thousands of ways to tile, it’s easy to ensure that your tile backsplash is completely one-of-a-kind. Choose your favorite materials, patterns, textures, and shades. You’ll find tile made from a variety of materials in our store, including ceramic, porcelain, glass, marble, and more. We have the best tile brands like Emser Tile and Glazzio Mosaics.
Tile is always in style. Marble tile and marble-inspired patterns remain quite popular. Herringbone patterns are also highly coveted, with mosaic and rectangle-shaped tiles used to customize striking installations. For bathrooms and backsplashes, decorative tiles with painted designs bring colorful focal points.
