Creative Uses for Porcelain Tile

We are constantly amazed at the creativity of our customers - whether they are do-it-yourselfers (DIY), or contractors, or professional decorators, folks are always coming up with creative designs for their floors and walls.  They can be attention-grabbing full installations, such as dramatic flooring patterns covering a whole room or corridor, or simply eye-catching accents, drawing attention to part of a wall or section of floor.  Some really creative-minded types find ways to use leftover materials from jobs, such as porcelain tiles, and it isn’t always limited to just floors and walls.

Which brings us to the topic of this post.  We’d like to share some fantastic, creative uses for porcelain tiles which really make the most of this versatile surfacing material - for both floors and walls - and maybe even more.  Read on.

Creating Different Looks With Porcelain Tile

One amazing thing about porcelain tile is its ability to mimic other material types.  These wonderful finished flooring looks, for example, include:

  • Wood
  • Stone
  • Marble 
  • Slate
  • Mosaics

There’s no need to tell anyone the floor they’re looking at or standing on is not what it looks like.  They’ll never be able to tell!  Porcelain tile is that good, and that adaptable.  Plus, it comes at a price point that makes it exceptionally competitive against other surface types and materials.  

Here for example, is a small selection of the mosaic tiles we carry.

Porches, Fireplace Surrounds, Pet Showers & More

Folks can get really creative with uses for porcelain tile.  Basically, you’re limited by only your imagination, but some fantastic applications for porcelain tile include:

Outdoor porches and other outdoor uses.  Homeowners are constantly on the lookout for ways to increase living space, and it doesn’t have to be restricted to the home interior.  Porcelain tile flooring is a great choice for a porch or patio floor covering.  It’s attractive, durable, and easy to clean.  You could increase your home’s living space by several hundred square feet by simply taking advantage of some of your backyard.  Porcelain tile can help make it happen.

Fireplaces - porcelain tile has become a popular, affordable surfacing choice around fireplaces, and that’s not limited to just floors.  Because of its excellent heat resistance qualities - porcelain is manufactured using very high heat to begin with - it is perfect in higher heat settings, such as fireplace surroundings.  We also carry some amazing decorative stone mosaics.  Dazzle your guests with some really cool tile choices.

Pet Showers - one of the more creative and extravagant applications we’ve seen for porcelain tiles is for Fido or Rover.  Pet showers have become commonplace, and if you think about it, for good reason.  Bath time for a pooch can be a challenge and a mess, whether Fido enjoys it or not.  Creating a separate stall for your dog makes perfect sense - and to make that member of the family feel even more special, give your new pet shower a gorgeous finishing touch with porcelain tiles, for both horizontal and vertical surfaces.  Porcelain is a proven tile choice for bathrooms; it’s sure to be perfect for your doggie bath stall as well.
