Tile is an excellent choice for use in any office or commercial building. The durability and style afforded by tile will create a long-lasting and appealing space for employees and clients alike to enjoy. Contact Tile For Less in Seattle or Bothell to find out how we can help you realize your next commercial tiling project on any budget.
Your tile flooring should blend naturally with the décor in your building. Tiles are available in a range of colors, so consider your building’s existing palette to find the best match. If you’d like a floor that features depth and texture, natural stone or inkjet-printed tiles are an excellent choice. Because tile can look very different in a showroom than in your building, bring a few samples back to see how the tiles will look in your building’s lighting. This can help you determine which colors and patterns will look best in your company’s environment.
Commercial buildings need flooring that is durable and able to withstand great amounts of daily wear. You want to choose a tile that will stand up over time against foot traffic, wheeled delivery carts, and other abuse. Ceramic tiles are a popular flooring choice in business and manufacturing environments because they are both durable and water-resistant. A ceramic tile floor will not only look great for years to come with very little chipping and wear, it will not absorb liquid and is easy to clean as well. Many natural stone tiles are more porous, meaning they will pick up stains and damage more easily unless they are sealed.

Porcelain tiles are a type of ceramic tile ideal for use on floors and walls. These tiles offer better water resistance and greater durability than other types of ceramic tile. If you’re wondering whether porcelain tiles are right for your home, keep reading to learn some of the factors you should consider when selecting the best tile for your project.
Porcelain is fired at very high temperatures, granting it the ability to stand up to much rougher treatment than plain ceramic tiles. Porcelain tiles are colored all the way through, rather than having a colored glaze like other ceramics. Any chips that do occur are rarely visible, while a ceramic tile will show the natural color of the tile underneath any defect in the glaze. It is this durability that makes porcelain a popular choice for high-traffic areas of your home, indoors or out—including your garage floor.
Porcelain tiles are extremely water resistant. These tiles have a water absorption rate of 0.5% or less, meaning they are waterproof and frostproof. Porcelain is denser and less porous than ceramic tile, making it less susceptible to moisture and cracking. These properties make porcelain tiles an excellent choice for bathrooms, kitchen, and even outdoor spaces that must endure daily weather and wet conditions.
Because porcelain is more durable and less susceptible to moisture absorption than other types of ceramic tiles, it is typically more expensive. In many cases, porcelain offers durability far beyond the requirements of normal everyday wear in a typical household. These factors are both important to consider if you are thinking about using porcelain tile in your home. Ceramic tiles are also long-lasting and water resistant, although most non-porcelain ceramics should not be used for outdoor applications.
