Ways to Incorporate Denver Porcelain Tiles in Your Home


April 19, 2017

Denver porcelain tile complements any interior and is loved by homeowners across the country because of its durability and affordability. This versatile tile comes in many different colors and styles, so you can use it in various places throughout your home. Where should you begin? Here are some ideas to help you determine how you can incorporate porcelain tile in your home:

Outdoor Kitchen

Many homeowners use porcelain tile in their indoor kitchens, but what about their outdoor kitchens? Porcelain tile is very difficult to scratch or chip, so it’s the perfect material for the outdoors where it may be exposed to harsh environmental elements. Porcelain is also not as vulnerable to freeze and thaw cycles as other tiles, which is why it is a better choice than ceramic tile for the outdoors. If you’re thinking of installing an outdoor kitchen, you should consider using porcelain tile for your countertops.

Bathroom Walls

Porcelain tile is often used on bathroom floors, but if you want to incorporate it even further into your home’s design, add it to the bathroom walls as well. Use large porcelain tiles on your bathroom walls to make the entire room look sleeker and edgier. This design isn’t just stylish—it’s functional, too. Porcelain tile is more resistant to water than other options, including wallpaper. If you want to limit the damage that water does in your bathroom, then adding porcelain tile to your walls is a smart decision.

Don’t forget to add porcelain tiles to the walls inside your shower, too. Because this area is exposed to more water than any other wall space in your bathroom, porcelain tile is the right choice to protect your walls.

Fireplace

Do you have a fireplace in your living room or bedroom? There’s no better way to draw attention to it and make it the centerpiece of the room than by surrounding it with porcelain tile. There are so many colors and designs of porcelain tile that you can create virtually any look that you want. Right now, it’s very trendy to choose a metallic porcelain tile to use around the fireplace. This style will make the fireplace look more dramatic, while using porcelain tile that resembles wood will make the fireplace look more rustic and natural. See 10 stylish tile options for your fireplace surround.

Patio

As previously mentioned, porcelain tile is a great choice for outdoor spaces because of its durability. So if you plan on redoing your patio, you may want to use porcelain tile flooring. You can use porcelain tile that resembles wood or natural stone to give your patio a more authentic, outdoorsy feel.

The Pros and Cons of Denver Porcelain Tiles


March 22, 2017

If you are remodeling your home, it’s important to do your research and learn about every option that is available to you. When it comes to choosing materials, you may have heard of glass and even ceramic tiles being used in kitchens and bathrooms, but what about porcelain? Here are the pros and cons of using Denver porcelain tiles in your home:

Pro: Durable

If you want a low maintenance material for your home, porcelain may be the right choice for you. Porcelain will last for years and will rarely require any sort of repair. Unlike other flooring materials, porcelain is easy to clean, so it’s a great choice for the kitchen or bathroom. It also doesn’t absorb much moisture, so if you spill a liquid, you don’t have to worry about it seeping into your floor and leaving a stain. Instead, just grab a soft cloth and quickly wipe up the stain.

Con: Temperature Changes

Some flooring materials are more sensitive to temperature changes than others, and one of these materials is porcelain. If the temperature drops outside, the porcelain in your home may feel a bit chilly underneath your feet as a result. If this is a major problem for you, but you don’t want to give up the look of porcelain, simply lay down throw rugs. The rug will protect your feet from brushing up against cold porcelain so you don’t have to worry about how the outside temperature will affect your floors indoors.

Pro: Looks Like Other Materials

Many homeowners love the look of hardwood, but don’t love the price tag that comes along with it. Instead of giving up on their dream to have hardwood floors, they have the option of choosing porcelain tiles that are designed to look similar to hardwood. Although the two materials may feel different, your guests will never know the difference just by looking at your floor. There are also porcelain tiles that look identical to travertine, so keep this in mind if you love the look of travertine but don’t think the material is a good fit for your home.

Con: Requires Professional Installation

If you were planning on installing porcelain tiles on your own, you may want to reconsider. Porcelain is a very dense material, which makes it difficult to cut using tools that you may have at home. You also have to use a special setting material when installing porcelain, and many do-it-yourselfers don’t have this material available. If you want porcelain in your home, it’s in your best interests to leave it to the professionals. Learn more about the pros and cons of porcelain tile.

The Best Natural Stones for Denver Tile Floors


April 12, 2016

Natural stone tile floors can enhance the appearance of your floors, improve the atmosphere of your home, and increase the value of your property. However, when designing tile floors, you first must decide which stone materials to use. If you are interested in installing tile floors, you should learn about the best tile floor materials that premier Denver natural stone companies can provide.
  • Travertine can be ideal for your Denver tile floor. Travertine tiles often display a classic, elegant, and graceful beauty. Travertine is especially beneficial because of the exceptional versatility of the stone. You can choose from a diverse range of options regarding the colors, shades, styles, and designs of travertine tiles. The versatile and extensive options should enable you to select the particular type of travertine tile that would be most appropriate for your flooring needs and that would most effectively complement the other features in your home. Additionally, travertine is also revered because the texture is relatively softer than many other stones. The softer texture can be beneficial for when you are walking around barefoot, sitting on the floor, or for when your kids are playing around the house.
  • Marble appeals to many homeowners because they appreciate the remarkable aesthetic value. The marble slabs often feature strong colors, elaborate designs, and a brilliant shine. As a result, the powerful appearance and magnificent splendor radiated by the marble tiles can adorn the luxurious beauty of your floor and enrich the ambiance of your home. Additionally, marble is highly adaptable, which enables the tiles to easily match the other colors and design patterns of your home. Although marble is generally a more expensive option, they can be cost-effective because the gorgeous and high-quality material can substantially enhance the appearance and value of your property.
  • Slate can also work for your Denver tile floors. Many advantages accompany slate tiles, such as attractive colors and light tones that can make the rooms appear more spacious. This makes slate an especially appropriate choice for smaller rooms and cozy living areas. The smooth texture and appealing design patterns on the slate tiles also provide a very comfortable, warm, and inviting appearance. This enables the slate tiles to perpetuate a pleasant and delightful atmosphere that should satisfy your family and impress your friends.
  • Porcelain stone is fired at extremely hot temperatures, making it an exceptionally hard and durable material. The hard texture allows the tiles to withstand hard blows and resist incurring any cracks, scratches, dents, or chips. Porcelain is also less porous than many other options. The low porosity prevents the tiles from trapping liquid stains, harboring bacteria, or from displaying dirt streaks and smudge marks. Additionally, the superb durability of porcelain can save you money in the long run, as each tile should retain its exceptional quality for an extensive period of time without becoming damaged or needing to be replaced.

Contact Natural Stone Sales for your tile floors. Our expert staff has over 30 years of combined experience and is revered throughout the Denver area for providing superior and personalized natural stone services. We can handle any of your natural stone needs, we use the best products on the market, and we would be happy to provide you with stone tiles that can enhance the beauty of your floors and maximize the quality of your home.

Using Porcelain Tile in Denver to Update Your Bathroom


February 2, 2016

While many people love to use a natural stone like marble or travertine in their bathrooms, there’s another great tile choice that helps you achieve a fresh, updated look, and that’s porcelain. Porcelain tile comes in an impressive variety of styles and colors these days, and it can be engineered to give the look of wood and stone. With the following porcelain tile design ideas, you’ll have a bathroom that looks and feels brand new:
  • Accent your walls – Have a wall in your bathroom that you don’t know what to do with? Use porcelain tile to turn it into an accent wall. Install the tile from floor to ceiling to make a big statement (and to also make a low ceiling feel taller). If you have time and/or budget constraints, install the porcelain only halfway up the wall and then try this technique: match the tile grout to the wall color. These design ideas work well if you’re not shy about color, so feel free to get creative with blue, green, red, yellow, or even pink. You’re only limited by your imagination.
  • Re-think your floors – Consider adding a section of porcelain tile to your existing flooring, such as a border around a bathtub or a pedestal sink, or even an inlaid section in the middle of the floor. A mixed-material floor not only brings the beauty of texture and interest to your bathroom, but feels wonderful underfoot, too. For another idea, choose a porcelain tile that’s made to look like weathered wood and install it on your floor in an interesting pattern, such as herringbone. The combination of the look of wood with the unique pattern will give your bathroom a flair all its own.
  • Jazz up your backsplash – Porcelain tile makes an excellent backsplash since it’s so durable and water-resistant. But for design interest, try mixing and matching different colors and patterns of porcelain tile in the backsplash. Or, if you have an otherwise crisp, all-white bathroom, go for the boldest color choice you can make in the backsplash tile. But if a bold statement is not your cup of tea, pick a neutral-colored porcelain tile to extend from your backsplash down over your countertops. Blending your backsplash with your counter will give a calm, understated effect.
  • Bring style to your shower – Thinking about re-tiling your shower? To achieve a sleek, luxurious feel, choose a porcelain tile with the look of stone. Today’s realistic imaging on porcelain, especially if you select a larger size of tile, will make your shower tile seem as if it’s been custom-cut from the finest natural stone slabs—without the hefty price tag.
