Tile & Stone Types

The experts at Richmond Decorating Center will pair you with the perfect tile or stone match for you!


Ceramic tile is used interchangeably with porcelain. Technically, both traditional and porcelain tiles are ceramics made from clay and other minerals and are fired at high temperatures.


Porcelain tiles are a form of ceramic but they are fired at much higher temperatures. Porcelain is dense and highly moisture resistant which makes it a good choice for bathroom and outdoors.


Glass tiles range from opaque to opalescent. They’re available in broad sizes, shapes, textures, designs and finishes. They are excellent for anything from accents to full-wall mosaic treatments.


Granite is a hard, durable natural stone that comes in many colors. Granite can be used on floors, walls and counters.


Marble flooring is making a comeback! With its strength and durability, and over five-hundred varieties available, the possibilities are virtually limitless.
