Porcelain, Ceramic and Stone Tile

Ceramics are an ancient craft that dates back to some 4,000 years, originating in Ancient Egypt around 4,700 BCE “Ceramic” comes from the Greek word “keramos,” or pottery The word “tile” originates from Latin “tegula” and its French derivative, “tuile”

Usage of tile spread west from the Middle East and became popular in Europe during 11th century, when mosaic floorings and panels became prevalent.

Ceramic tile is a popular flooring choice due to aesthetic appeal, as well as durability and easy care as Grade III and IV tiles are extremely scratch resistant. There are many colors, shapes, sizes, and glazes available to create outstanding designs today.
