Ceramic tile is a product you can count on.
It comes in a diverse array of colors and patterns. From the elegant, highly-polished marble look to even a simulated stone, it provides virtually unlimited options for your design needs. Ceramic tile is often compared to porcelain tile and viewed as inferior – but it isn’t necessarily the case! Not every home tile application requires the added characteristics of porcelain. Appropriately using ceramic tile instead on your interior projects can save the homeowner a pretty penny.
Porcelain tiles have really become an affordable product for the North State community. While porcelain has been used for making tiles for many years, only modern production methods and quantities has made the porcelain tile available for the average householder in recent years. You can’t go wrong with porcelain tile because of its properties including its suitability for both interior and exterior projects and it is highly abrasion resistant so it can withstand the traffic of a busy household. Though most porcelain tiles tend to lean towards a “natural stone” look, there are in fact many styles to choose from. Appealing to both classic and contemporary tastes, porcelain tiles can be a medium for any designer.

Just mention elegance in the tile industry and marble nearly always tops the conversation.
The word “marble” derives from the μάρμαρον (mármaron), from μάρμαρος (mármaros), “crystalline rock, shining stone”, or perhaps from the verb μαρμαίρω (marmaírō), “to flash, sparkle, gleam”. When you’re looking for that “marbled look” on your countertop, shower, floor or just considering a liner or accent, marble is king. There is nothing more captivating than adding marble to your project.
When it comes to architectural beauty, there’s just no subsitute for natural stone. Artfully installed granite tiles can change the whole dynamic of your project with just a touch of rock or a full piece on your countertop. Each piece of stone has it’s own unique pattern and look.
Most types of stone we work with are available in 12-inch by 12-inch pieces. So if you’re looking for the enhancement of beautiful stone on a budget, setting beautiful granite tiles is an excellent cost-saving option with stunning results.
Despite it’s trademark-sounding name, travertine is a form of natural limestone deposited by mineral springs, especially hot springs. The Romans mined deposits of travertine for building temples, aqueducts, monuments, bath complexes, and amphitheaters such as the Colosseum, the largest building in the world constructed mostly of travertine.
From a soft pillowed edge to a rugged chiseled edge, travertine is a material that became very popular during the building craze in the northstate in 90’s and has endured through the 2000’s until now. Aside of its soft elegant look, travertine is also easy to use to fabricate its own bullnose edging, eliminating the need for trim. From a designing perspective, adding contrasting accents and inserts with other natural stones makes a great look too.
