Types of Tile

Selecting tile involves more than picking the right color.

Kermans is a popular tile store in Indianapolis because we carry a variety of tile and have experts on staff to help you select the type of tile that best fits your home and budget. Tile flooring used to be synonymous with ceramic tile. Not anymore! Tile flooring today comes in a beautiful array of materials and styles. Whether you are looking for tile flooring for your kitchen or bathroom, your entryway or your all-purpose room – or perhaps a backsplash – there is a tile type that is just right for you.

One of the most attractive features of tile is its easy maintenance. This is a floor that can stand up to traffic, moisture and spills with ease. But tile has much more to offer than quick cleaning – tile comes in a wide variety of colors and textures that add something special to any room. The material of the tile itself also lends a strong design element, from the traditional look of ceramic to the contemporary feel of stone to the colorful mosaics of glass tiles.
