Innovative styles make tile a popular flooring choice

Tile flooring is an exciting flooring option, especially if you have a flair for room design. Innovative patterns, colors, and designs can be paired with furnishings and accessories to create a striking look. Tile blends seamlessly with decor that ranges from shabby chic and rustic to minimalist and urban modern. McLean Floorcoverings is a tile store in Wilkesboro, North Carolina, that installs flooring and custom tile showers as well as custom window treatments and awnings. We provide the latest styles for all your home improvement projects, including a large assortment of ceramic and porcelain tiles.


Ceramic tile is made of clay that is formed into many shapes and sizes and then fired in a kiln. While this floor covering is less durable than porcelain, it is also less expensive. Typically, tiles come in solid colors. This easy-to-clean stain and scratch-resistant flooring is a favorite for kitchens. The floor is waterproof when the ceramic is glazed. Unglazed ceramic has a high absorption rate so it should not be used in moisture-prone spaces. Further, unglazed ceramic works well in areas that have heavy foot traffic as well as in outdoor spaces in milder climates. Tiles are cut and installed on a cement board subfloor and then joined together with grout.

Porcelain is a flooring option that is always worth considering. It's both practical and aesthetically pleasing, and best of all, it is the most durable tile available. This floor covering features designs that range from vibrantly colored patterns to a wood look. Porcelain is a type of ceramic that is fired in the kiln at higher temperatures. It is made of a more refined clay than ceramic. Because of the difference in heat and materials, the tile is harder, denser, and less porous. Porcelain will not sustain damage even if it is covered with water for a prolonged period. Porcelain tile installation is not a DIY project. It is brittle and hard to cut.
