Trends for 2017

Large Format Tile

Tile in larger formats, ranging from 16 x 16 to 36 x 24, will be increasingly popular in 2017. This format will be found in all rooms of the home, and commercial sites, on the floor as well as on the wall.

Vinyl Plank Flooring

Vinyl flooring has developed into an optimal choice for flooring with its incredible ability to mimic wood, stone, and tile. It can be used in just about any application, even in the bathroom or kitchen, due to the waterproof nature of the material.

Multi-tonal Carpet

Carpet with a heathered look is a smooth way to incorporate colors into the room without being too bold. This is great for those who want to add dimension and texture while remaining timeless.

Contrasting Cabinets

Why use a single color on your cabinets when you can utilize two? Two-toned cabinets have popped up, using one color for the bottom cabinets and a different one up top, or using one for the cabinets and another for the island. This look is a great way to incorporate both of the colors you cannot choose from.

Floor Warming

DITRA-HEAT combines the flexibility of loose heating cables with the ease of installation of mat systems. Cables can be placed wherever heat is desired, without creating height differences in the floor. Self-leveling compounds are not required to encapsulate the cables, significantly reducing installation time and effort.

Uncoupling

Tile has been successfully installed for thousands of years by incorporating an uncoupling layer, or forgiving shear interface, within the tile assembly. DITRA-HEAT provides uncoupling through its geometric configuration, which allows for in-plane movement that effectively neutralizes the differential movement stresses between the substrate and the tile, thus eliminating the major cause of cracking and delaminating of the tiled surface.

Waterproofing

DITRA-HEAT provides reliable waterproofing. Its polypropylene composition protects the substrate from moisture penetration, which is particularly important in today’s building environment where most substrates are moisture-sensitive.

Vapor Management

The free space on the underside of DITRA-HEAT provides a route for excess moisture and vapor to escape from the substrate that could otherwise cause damage to the tile covering above. Thus, DITRA-HEAT effectively manages moisture beneath the tile covering.

Support/load distribution

When placed on a solid foundation, columns or pillars can support tremendous loads. The same physical principle applies to DITRA-HEAT installations. Column-like mortar structures are formed in and between the studs on the surface of the matting. Loads are transferred from the tile covering through these column-like mortar structures to the substrate. Since DITRA-HEAT is virtually incompressible within the tile assembly, the advantages of uncoupling are achieved without sacrificing point load distribution capabilities.”

Ceramic vs. Porcelain Tile

 

Is there a difference?

T776_NA50_00Let’s start with this plain and simple fact:  all tile is ceramic. They are not two different things.

Although both are made from clay and other naturally occurring materials that are fired in a kiln, the clay used to make porcelain tile is more pure and refined. Porcelain is an extremely dense and hard material because it is fired at a higher temperature and greater pressure.

Capri_200Limestn_600Bronze_Rm
Ceramic

Ceramic tiles are used in pretty much every tile application. These tiles are softer and easier to cut than porcelain, meaning that they are more susceptible to wear and chipping. They are usually suitable for very light to moderate traffic for this reason. Ceramic tile is easy to clean, durable, and available in many styles, colors, and textures. If you have kids or pets, consider light grouts and textured tiles, as these are not as slippery and a safer flooring option.

Porcelain

Porcelain tiles have been fired at a higher temperature, making it a denser tile. These tiles are much harder and are more wear and damage resistant than non-porcelain ceramic tiles. They are excellent for light traffic and heavy traffic. Full body porcelain tiles carry the color and pattern throughout the entire depth of the tile, making them nearly impervious to wear and are appropriate for any application. Porcelain tile can cost about 10% more than the regular ceramic tile.

Before choosing a ceramic or porcelain tile consider where you are going to use it. Stay with a good quality ceramic tile if it is going to be in a high traffic area such as an entry way or heavy used hallway. For bathrooms or laundry rooms, use a porcelain tile. Not only is porcelain tile more durable because of their hardness, they are more resistant to moisture. It is the best choice for tiling bathroom floors, bathroom walls, shower stalls, and when tiling around bathtubs.

Porcelain tile is also an ideal product for cold-weather climates where freeze/thaw conditions are a concern, especially outdoors. Due to its low moisture absorption rate (.5 percent or less), porcelain is less likely to crack after freeze/thaw and is more impervious to stains.

No matter what your design style is, there’s a tile flooring option to bring your vision to life. Tile is not purely a trendy choice, either. It’s been appreciated as flooring for years and will continue to be a great way to bring lasting beauty and value to your home. Whether you have a traditional, contemporary, rustic, or modern home, there is a color and style of tile that will immaculately match it.
