Flooring made of a long-lasting natural material is ideal for kitchen installation. Glazed ceramic and porcelain tiles, both of which are crafted with clay, are waterproof as well as easy to clean and maintain.

Direct Custom Flooring offers tile in Tavares, FL, including brands made by superior manufacturers like Dal-Tile and Happy Floors.


Porcelain tile, the most durable type in the marketplace today, is composed of fine kaolin clay that is hardened in a kiln at a high temperature.

These hard and dense tiles are found in many designs, sizes, and shapes. Trendy wood-look tiles widen design options for kitchens, and since tiles tend to resemble small planks, they are ideal for layout patterns like herringbone.


While porcelain is naturally waterproof, ceramic is a porous material that repels water only when a glaze is applied. In addition, ceramic tile flooring is made of coarse clay hardened in a kiln at a lower temperature than porcelain.

As a result, less costly ceramic tile is often found in standard sizes like the perennial favorite 12 by 12-inch tile and solid, neutral colors or simple designs.

Get creative

Clay-based tile flooring invites creativity since they are used to design flooring that uniquely reveals your decorating style.

For example, square and rectangular tiles create a basketweave layout pattern, or a dark and light-colored square is combined to fashion a checkerboard pattern. A border around the room's perimeter or a medallion in the center of the room is striking.
