Transform Your Toronto Home with Porcelain Tiles

Are you looking to remodel your floors with tiles, but are not quite sure where to begin? Well to start, you need to decide on what type of tiles you want. This can be rather challenging considering there are many options to choose from. We will be discussing the benefits of porcelain tiles as they are one of the best choices for homes in Toronto and the GTA.

The Benefits of Porcelain Tiles

Porcelain tiles are the perfect decision for those with children and larger families as they are extremely safe and durable. These tiles are far more resistant to scratches and stains meaning that they can hold up to the everyday wear and tear of your children constantly running around the house. In addition, porcelain tiles are less likely to absorb bacteria and germs and prevent slipping. Usually something this durable isn’t always the most attractive option, right? Well, with porcelain tiles you get the best of both worlds as there is unlimited design potential. Not only can you create a gorgeous design on your tiles, the colour runs down throughout the surface. This means that it will look exactly the same over the years and the pattern will not wear down. In addition to porcelain tiles being an investment for your home, SS Tile & Stone offers porcelain tiles at wholesale prices. We want to ensure you won’t have to tap into your child’s college fund for this designer look!

Porcelain Tiles Should not be a Weight on your Shoulders

The only point of caution when it comes to purchasing porcelain tiles is how much they weigh. Each individual tile is considerably heavier than normal tiles meaning that patience and skill is needed when installing them. If not, a tile can easily break if it mishandled or dropped. This shouldn’t turn you off of porcelain tiles as they are still one of the most successful options in the industry. SS Tile & Stone recommends forgoing the DIY installation and allow us to work with you and suggest a skilled installer that is professionally qualified to install your porcelain tile with ease.

How Designer Wallpaper can Change your Toronto Home | SS Tile & Stone

Beautiful wallpaper rarely goes unnoticed; whether it’s the bold pattern or the unique design of the wallpaper. As opposed to a painted room, a room decorated with wallpaper can inspire a mood or ambience with the designer’s unique patterns.

In the 1970’s and 80’s wallpaper was at its peak. It was considered a popular option for many houses in North America. Its popularity waned due to exaggerated and “tacky” patterns that took over the market. In 2018, this has changed. Now more people are choosing wallpaper and it is evident that designer wallpaper is making a huge come-back among home owners, interior designers and the younger generation in search of more meaningful and personalized decor.

At SS Tile & Stone we understand that many first time buyers of wallpaper are not exactly sure how to match wallpaper design with furniture or the overall aesthetics of a room. This is why SS Tile & Stone offers you excellent customer service and advice on your selection when you are in our showroom. Below, we provide four tips on how to choose your wallpaper.

Designer Wallpaper | Tone with Tone

When you are decorating an entire room with wallpaper that has a strong pattern, color or both, a good ground rule is to use the same color of the wallpaper with other objects in the room. You can still vary the prints with other objects in the room but the general color of the wallpaper needs to be the same as predominant objects. This avoids the feeling of the room being cluttered.

Be Creative | Break the Design

Another option when trying to tone down a strong pattern of wallpaper is to put the wallpaper in panels so the patterns have a break between spaces. This allows for more neutral space in the room, which softens the strong patterns of the wallpaper.

Choosing Patterns | Stay with Neutrals

Neutrals usually match together perfectly, giving a more serious upscale look to any interior design. Having a strong pattern usually takes up all the attention in a room and having neutral colors help the focus remain on the aesthetics of the design and patterns.

Choosing Colours for Wallpaper | Colour Contrast

One of the designers’ favorites is to play around with textures and colors. Strong patterns with neutral colors can provide stylish looks by implementing a splash of vibrant colors like red or green into a room. Contrasting colors can also have a powerful effect in your home’s interior, because it makes a statement and can also make a room look more spacious.

Tiles have the advantage of not becoming electrically charged when you walk on them which can result in friction unlike other flooring options such as carpeting which will expose this phenomenon around you and your house.

Tiles are Hygienic and easy to clean

Usually carpets hold a large quantity of dust inside your house. Tiles are easy to clean and remove any bacteria out of the surface of your home. Tiles are very effective for hygienic purposes.

Exceptionable durability

When you want your room to project an open concept or another style which conveys spaciousness, tiles are a perfect choice. Available in a wide range of variety, once you choose the harmony and look that you are looking for it will be easy to choose form the many options available.

Tiles are scratch and crack resistant

Tiles have the ability to withstand large amount of pressure, and if you select the harder material tiles even if you drop something that is really heavy on them they won’t crack.

Encaustic Tiles – Not Just a Thing of the Past

Encaustic Tiles have been around for centuries, but are finally getting the recognition they deserve. These tiles have gone in and out of style, just like many fashion trends, but will shine once again in 2018. Their origin dates back all the way to Medieval times and was even a popular choice during the Victorian and Edwardian eras.

What are Encaustic Tiles?

So now that you know the backstory of encaustic tiles, you’re probably more confused than ever. If you’re still asking yourself questions such as “what exactly are encaustic tiles?” and “if they date back centuries, won’t they make my place look old and outdated?” Keep reading to find out more and how this is false!
Encaustic Tiles are a type of ceramic tiles in which the design on the surface is not a product of the glaze but of different colours of clay. They are typically composed of two colours but the tile can have as many as six. With all of the colour and pattern combinations the possibilities for the design of these tiles are endless! The designs are extremely gorgeous as they are bold and graphic. This adds a pop of flare and colour to any room.

Benefits of Trendy Encaustic Tiles

Since the design is a product of the clay, it will not diminish through the everyday wear and tear. This is a common struggle that homeowners in Toronto and the GTA face when it comes to their tiles as there is nothing more aggravating than spending time and money designing and installing tiles that eventually begin to fade. With a design so eye-catching, you don’t want it to fade over time, and luckily with encaustic tiles, that won’t happen.

Encaustic Tiles are Preferred over Carpets

You can get as creative as you want when it comes to encaustic tiles. An intricate design will give the illusion of a carpet like effect but will not require as much maintenance. Instead of a deep scrub periodically, all these tiles need are a quick wipe every once and a while and they are as good as new. In addition, encaustic tiles are perfect for warmer climates as they stay cool in hot weather and are not slippery.
Encaustic tiles are the ideal option if you are trying to bring life to a rather dull room. They look good in rooms of any size, but are a great way to spruce up a smaller space such as a bathroom or kitchen.

SS Tile & Stone | Encaustic Tiles in Toronto and the GTA

SS Tile & Stone is a trusted retailer and supplier of wallpaper, tiles and stone located in Etobicoke, Ontario. Our gorgeous encaustic tiles are sold at wholesale prices and we service clients in Toronto, Mississauga, Etobicoke and throughout the GTA.

The Benefits of Porcelain Tile versus Marble Tile

The Benefits of Porcelain Tile versus Marble Tile

As a new home-owner, contractor or someone in the midst of renovations, choosing new tile for your home can be challenging. There are so many options and products on the market, it can become overwhelming. Besides the obvious appearance, there are many other factors to keep in mind such as durability and maintenance. Two very popular materials for tiles are marble and porcelain. Knowing the difference between both is important when making a final decision. What many people are unaware of are the benefits porcelain tiles offer compared to marble tile, which we will explain clearly below.

1. Porcelain Tiles are easier to maintain

While both porcelain and marble tiles are best installed by a professional, porcelain does not require as much maintenance. Marble tile must be continuously cleaned, dusted and mopped to prevent it from absorbing any liquids or staining. In comparison, porcelain is much less likely to stain and thus requires less maintenance.

2. Porcelain is more durable

Although marble can be used outdoors, it will only withstand the outdoors in areas where it rarely freezes or rains. Marble is more commonly seen on walls, indoor flooring, backsplashes and kitchens. Porcelain tiles on the other hand are harder and can be used both indoor and outdoor surfaces. Porcelain tiles are less sensitive to cold or rain and are very strong and dense. They are also frost resistant, stain, scratch and moisture resistant.

3. Marble is more expensive

There is a significant difference when it comes to the price of both tiles. While porcelain generally ranges in price from CAD $7 to $15 per square foot, marble can cost you almost twice as much. Of course, there are many factors involved in pricing but as a general rule; porcelain tiles are considerably less expensive than marble tiles.

 


4. Appearance

Where marble is a natural stone mined from quarries, porcelain is manufactured from clay. This means that each marble tile is unique while porcelain can be custom-tailored in different colors, textures and patterns. This allows porcelain to look like natural stone but at a much lower price point.

5. You can choose Porcelain that looks like Marble

Marble remains a natural stone, which undeniably carries aesthetic weight and value. It is also clear that marble adds elegance and luxury to any home. However, if you are budget conscious and prefer not to spend the high price tag, there are numerous porcelain tiles made to look exactly like marble. This way, you get the durability of porcelain, but the aesthetic value of marble.
