Tile flooring in Independence, MO from KC Floorworx

Guide to choosing tile flooring

Ceramic and porcelain are classic tile flooring materials that wear well throughout their long lifespan. Colors, shapes, sizes, and styles are numerous, and you can choose two or more types of tile to create a unique floor for your home.

If you're looking for floor tile in Independence, MO, you can find a large selection at KC Floorworx.

Ceramic tile

Ceramic is made of coarse clay, and because it is porous, ceramic tile is only waterproof when it is glazed. As a result, you'll find many tiles in standard sizes, including the always popular 12x12 tile and solid colors or simple designs.

Ceramic tile flooring is appropriate for any room in your home, moisture-prone or moisture-free, with low or medium foot traffic.

Porcelain tile

Porcelain tile is made of fine kaolin clay that is hardened in a kiln at a higher temperature than ceramic tile. Thus, superior porcelain is harder and denser than ceramic as well as naturally waterproof.

Choose mosaic or large format tiles or any size in-between, and if you favor the most trendy porcelain tile design, opt for tile flooring that mimics wood or stone flooring.


Grout is placed between tiles, and while the tiles need no more care than damp-mopping with a mild water-soap solution, the grout is periodically sealed to keep out moisture and avoid stains and mildew.

If you want to unify the tiles, such as wood-look tile flooring, opt for grout that is a little lighter than the tile. To highlight a floor layout pattern, choose a contrasting color.
