Tile Flooring in Ponderay, ID

Tile has a long history of beautifying residential and commercial settings - a history spanning generations. Offering a reliable barrier against everyday elements, while holding tight against temperature fluctuations, tile is as fun as it is functional.


Are you contemplating tile for your upcoming project? We at Sandpoint Carpet One Floor & Home in Ponderay, Idaho, are here to help you with things you should keep in mind while shopping for your new tile.


What Are the Different Types of Tiles?

While new types of tiles are constantly being added to the market, most tile is made from ceramic, porcelain, and stone.


What Is Ceramic Tile?

Ceramic tile is made from clay, sand, and water, which is then fired in the kiln. Though not ideal for outdoors, ceramic tile is a popular option for homeowners because it is:



What Is Porcelain Tile?

Porcelain tile is made of clay, sand, and water, just like ceramic, but is fired at a higher temperature, making it 100% waterproof and extremely durable. Porcelain tile is a great choice because it:



What Is Stone Tile?

Stone tile is made from slabs of natural stone, like slate, granite, and marble. Here are just a few things to know about stone tile:



What is Wood-Look Tile?

Wood-look tile takes the beautiful aspects of hardwood and combines them with easy features like durability and moisture resistance, making wood-look tile a popular choice for busy homes and those with pets or children.


Thanks to its durability, wood-look tile is ideal for areas exposed to the outdoors, spills, and even dogs' nails. It can be installed in nearly any room of your home. For example, living rooms, mudrooms, stairs, kitchens, and bathrooms are all areas where wood-look tile would benefit homeowners.


What Are the Benefits of Wood Look Tile?

Wood-look tile flooring allows you to make a standout statement expressing your unique style, even in hard-to-fit areas.


We love wood-look tile because it: 



Where Can Tile Be Installed?

Extremely versatile, tile can truly go just about anywhere, with its only limit being your imagination.


Tile floors can endure extreme moisture, heat, and cold, so they work well for your laundry room or even in a finished basement. They're easy to repair since tiles can be replaced individually as needs dictate, making them a great flooring option for high-traffic areas and commercial settings.



What Else Can Tile Be Used For?

In addition to flooring, tile works great as a backsplash or even a custom-tiled shower. Protect your kitchen and bathroom walls from the everyday splatter and splashes that come with cooking or bath time.


Backsplash tile is smaller than flooring tile but made of the same material, so it is durable and low-maintenance. We love backsplash tile because it allows you to create a space that is truly special to you with endless designs, colors, and styles. We even offer custom backsplash tile!



Planning Your Tile Installation 

If you need answers to the most common tile installation questions our installation guide is here to help.


When installing tile, keep in mind that dust, grouting, and moving appliances can get a little messy—which you don’t need to worry about since our team takes care of that. It takes at least two days to set the tiles, and then the team moves on to grouting.


Depending on the project and its size, installation can take anywhere from a few days to a month to complete.
