All About Tile in North Carolina

A & B Carpet One Floor & Home in Kitty Hawk and Buxton, North Carolina, has you and your home covered for your next tile project. Tile allows you to let out your creativity and create a totally custom design. We can install tile on more than just your floors, we can also install on your walls and outside! Our flooring professionals are here to help you choose the perfect tile options for your next home project. Since tiles are made with natural materials, we like to refer to them as a “green” option for your home. Not only that, but tiles are also incredibly durable and allergy friendly.


Types of Tile Options


We have three main tile options to choose from including: ceramic, porcelain, and stone.


Porcelain and ceramic tile are popular and common options for kitchens and bathrooms alike. Both are made from kiln-fired clay and other natural materials, but porcelain is usually fired at a higher temperature. This makes it more durable and waterproof. Ceramic tile is budget friendly, and comes in a wide variety of styles. It’s a good option for walls because it’s light and versatile. Many porcelain tile collections are strong enough to use outdoors and as flooring and high traffic settings. Natural stone is another durable flooring choice. Made from slabs of marble, limestone, granite, travertine, and beyond, no two stone tiles are alike. You can have a completely custom floor with stone. 


Tile Installation


In order to know what type of tile you need, you’ll need to know what room you are installing the tile in. Tile comes in different densities and some are denser and can handle wear and moisture better than others. Even the glaze on a tile can determine how stain resistant it is. Tile is a great choice for kitchen and bathroom flooring. For bathroom and kitchen tile, choosing something that is dense and slip resistant is definitely a good way to go.


Our Tile Selection


When you shop with us you’ll find a collection of both name brand tiles in addition to Carpet One Floor & Home exclusive brands. As your local flooring store, we can help you find the perfect floor for your home. Our selection includes unique tile styles, like wood look tile.
