Tile on floors or walls is a long-lasting and durable option that offers a huge variety of choices and styles and is easy to maintain. Tile can have the look of wood, stone, porcelein, marble or a large selection of colors and patterns. Porcelain tiles are very hard and impermeable, which makes the tiles highly resistant to moisture, staining and wear.
