Great Flooring Options in Home Improvement:
There are so many choices when it comes to the flooring renovation of your home. One of the more popular flooring choices is tile, which alone contain three types of tile material: porcelain, ceramic and travertine. Here is a glimpse of all three tile types:
Porcelain and Ceramic:
Porcelain tile is actually ceramic tile made from a finer clay which is fired at a higher temperature. Porcelain is tougher than ceramic and less likely to stain because it is not as porous as ceramic. Porcelain is very easy to clean and maintain. Even if the tiles wear down with use, the design will remain as it is bake all the way through the tile. Ceramic tile is easier to cut and install. If you buy ceramic tile in a higher rating it will last as long as porcelain tile but cost less. Both tiles come in a wide variety of lovely patterns.
Travertine is actual stone. It is a form of limestone which only comes in various shades of tan and cream. If there is enough iron present in the stone, it can also run to gold and darker tones. It is actually formed from hot springs and is most often found at the mouth of caves or near hot springs. It is not only found in Texas, Oklahoma and Arkansas; but also in Europe. Some very famous buildings have been constructed completely in travertine such as a 1000 year old castle in Burghausen, Germany and the Getty Center in Las Angeles. The tiles reveal gorgeous patterns in the stone, but the stone is pourous and somewhat soft which makes the stone more difficult to finish and maintain.
