From entryway flooring application to kitchens, detailed bathroom designs, and even outdoor flooring, porcelain tile offers an endless variety and wide range of styles, colors, and textures to suit any type of luxurious décor - from classical to contemporary. Although typically more expensive than ordinary glazed ceramic tile, porcelain is denser than ceramic tile, and it is nearly impervious to stains, chipping, scratching, odors, dirt, and damage due to temperature changes. 

This exceptional durability makes porcelain a great choice for anything from heavily trafficked hallways to sun rooms, and exposed outdoor patio areas. Of course, for kitchens and baths, nothing offers the kind of beauty and lasting quality that porcelain tile provides. And cleanup is a breeze – most messes can be eradicated with nothing but a damp mop. Porcelain tile will outlast and outperform practically any other floor-covering product, so costly repairs and replacements won’t be an issue. If unexpected damage does occur, you can simply replace the affected tiles. Other floor coverings, from carpeting to hardwoods, are virtually impossible to spot-repair without leaving unsightly evidence.


Porcelain’s incomparable array of colors and textures makes it one of the most versatile tiling products available. As the leading Chicago porcelain tile specialists, Home Carpet One offers everything from high gloss to matte faux-travertine textures. For shower floors and bathrooms, rough-textured faux stone porcelain tiles offer the perfect combination of beauty and sure footing. Colors options are practically infinite, ranging from solid rainbow hues to speckled and grained stone patterns that can be indistinguishable from marble, linen, or whatever type of stone best matches your home’s aesthetic. Porcelain tiles are also available in a wide variety of sizes, ranging from tiny one-inch squares to tiles that measure 20 inches or more on their shortest edges.
