Tile’s enduring tradition of beautifying and protecting our favorite indoor and outdoor spaces continues to evolve. Distinctive and durable, tile can be used anywhere in or around the home, with thousands of customizable options.


At Ruggieri Carpet One Floor & Home of Cranston, RI, we have you and your home covered when it comes to tile flooring. Our flooring professionals are here to help you choose the perfect tile for your next home project. We carry a wide range of tile brands including brilliant products by Emser, Bel Terra, Daltile, and others. Here’s what you need to know if you’re thinking of tiling your home or business.


Types of Tiles

We have three main tile options to choose from, including ceramic, porcelain, and stone. When looking for bathroom and kitchen flooring, we often lean toward ceramic tile. Ceramic tile is light weight, made from natural materials, and comes in a wide variety of styles. It is most popular in residential kitchens and bathrooms because of its affordability and range of style options. When covered with the right glaze, ceramic can be incredibly resistant to scratching, so it’s perfect for households where pets and children run around.


If you need a more durable tile option for high-traffic areas like mudrooms, consider porcelain. Porcelain is a type of ceramic tile, but because it is baked at a higher temperature it is denser and resistant to heat and moisture. Porcelain tile is more water resistant than ceramic and absorbs less than 0.5% of moisture. So, you can install it in places like your laundry room and even outside as a patio without worrying about moisture being absorbed and causing cracks.


Additionally, we offer natural stone tile. Since stone is quarried from all over, no two slabs are alike, meaning you can have a truly custom floor. Natural stone is unique and comes in a variety of colors. Natural stone tiles are heavy and durable, so you can have the installed inside and outside of your home. When sealed correctly, natural stone is stain and water-resistant.


Our wood-look tiles are made using porcelain and ceramic materials. Each tile is created with high-definition printing technology for a stunningly realistic outcome. The tiles also come in plank formats with textures that match the wood grain. Depending on the style and functionality you want, you can choose varying lengths and widths, along with diverse levels of slip, stain, and abrasion-resistance. You can also pick from a range of wood tile patterns and sizes, and we're able to install them in unique layouts such as herringbone or chevron.


Where to Tile

Depending on the type of tile you choose, tile can go anywhere inside and outside your home, though it’s a favorite for kitchen & bath. Any tile option works well for your floors, but you want to choose either a ceramic option or one made specifically for walls if you’re going vertical.


Tiles are usually difficult to install, but fortunately, we partner with teams of skilled installers who can tackle every project. We’ll help you to choose suitable grouts and glazes, and we’ll be sure that the result is precisely what you had in mind. We can even help with custom backsplashes.


Creating a custom backsplash can be fun and exciting when there are so many options to choose from. Expressing your style is doable with tile because there are so many sizes, types, and colors. Similarly, adding borders and specific tile patterns can be done to create a completely custom tile backsplash. If you’re feeling trendy, choose a textured tile or something with a pattern. Whatever you decide, our local tile experts can help you sort through all the ideas you have to help create something you love.
