Whether residential or commercial, tile is one of the most desirable (and oldest) elements you can add to a project design. From floor to ceiling, this design provides endless possibilities in use, color, pattern, functionality, and application. As the number one commercial carpenter in Massachusetts, our team at Pro Plus Services is diving into the world of tile in honor of the upcoming National Tile Day!
The first tiles in history.
It comes as no surprise that the word ‘tile’ is universally used and recognized. Dating back to approximately 4000 BC, ceramic tiles were used for decorative purposes by the Egyptians. Made from clay, water, and other minerals, the resources were readily available and quickly became one of the most desirable materials.
Today’s most desirable types of tile.
With many variations of tile in today’s world, there are still a few that stand above the rest. When it comes to commercial and residential design, ceramic and porcelain tiles take first place in the most requested category. Providing an easier installation compared to other materials, these two variations provide a more affordable and versatile option. Further benefits of the two materials include:
- Fire Resistance
- Durability against stains and moisture
- Resistance to scratches
- Less strenuous maintenance requirements
- Most significant durability in high traffic areas
- Endless design options
- Allergen free
As previously mentioned, tile can be used in several different areas for many different reasons. Depending on the environment, functionality goals and appearance, your Massachusetts commercial contractor at Pro Plus Services, can take your space to new levels. Here are a few ideas:
- Customized Bar Tops
- Washroom Floors and Walls
