Tile: Easy Style for Edmonton Living 


Alberta winters aren’t for the faint of heart, but fortunately the same can be said for tile.



Tile makes a hefty, stylish, and functional floor that’s appeal goes far beyond fashion. With Edmonton's single-digit winters, a tile floor that resists moisture, freezing, thawing, and temperature shifts is a necessity and tile certainly fits the bill.



Concerned about snow, sleet, and salt being tracked into your living room when the thermometer plumets? Tile floors are easy to sweep clean, with an occasional mop making them shine.



Best Types of Tiles


Tile is made using various materials, but the most popular options are made from ceramic, porcelain, and stone.



Ceramic and porcelain are close cousins, with both being made from kiln-fired clay. Stone tiles are carved from slabs of natural minerals like granite and slate.




  • Ceramic Tile is very versatile and durable. There are tons of colours and styles, and all are moisture resistant.


  • Porcelain Tile is a denser type of ceramic that’s fired at a higher temperature. It resists extreme cold and is waterproof, so it fares great outside and inside.


  • Stone Tile brings luxurious beauty to all spaces. While it must be treated to be completely waterproof, once treated it performs great indoors and out.



What Is Wood-Look Tile?


Wood-look tile combines high-end hardwood textures with tile’s performance ability.



Wood-look tile is usually made from ceramic or porcelain. Modern printing techniques bring a layer of realistic wood photography, creating a convincing pattern in all your favorite textures and species.



Though you still can’t install natural hardwood floors in the bathroom or laundry room, wood-look tile works wonders. Use this heat-resistant, water-resistant products everywhere: it’s also great for wall-to-wall consistent looks in a home already heavy on hardwood.

Best Shower Tile & Backsplash Tile


Tile can be installed both vertically and horizontally.



Want to go beyond a fresh coat of paint when prettying up your kitchen & bath?  Tile works wonders on walls. Customize your kitchen area behind the counters and stove with a custom tile backsplash.  Or, you can make your shower cleaner and more creative with a custom tile shower.



Most wall tiles look identical to floor tile but are lighter in bulk for easy installation.  There are countless options, from bold, eye-popping patterns to neutral colours, and everything in between.



Wall tiles are easy to replace, affordable, durable, and a cinch to clean. They can be replaced individually in the rare instance a tile cracks or dents. Like all tile, they resist high heat, extreme cold, and moisture.





Can I Install My Own Tile?


It might seem like a cheaper option, but as time goes on, you might actually end up costing yourself significantly.



Professional tile installation is almost always the best idea. Flooring installers boast decades of experience and can finish the job better, faster, and more efficiently. You’ll also rest easy knowing your space has been moisture tested and properly prepared- and you won't worry whether or not your warranty will be honored down the road.
