In this video, you will learn about residential tile. When you are choosing tile for your home, it can be challenging to decipher between all of the options. There are a few things to keep in mind such as size, material, and how it should match the design of the house. Generally speaking, tile encompasses both floor and wall.
There are materials for tiles that can be used on both the floor and wall such as ceramic and tile. You are going to want to steer clear of using glass tile on the floor, as it can crack and stain easily. If you are looking for something that is more porous, and easier to clean, going with porcelain can be a good option. Though it may be higher in price, it is known to last longer.

Choosing the best tile for your home can depend on budget, lifestyle, and style preferences. Keep watching this video for more information!
