If you are designing a new commercial property, or are remodeling your current space, then deciding on the best tile is one of the first things to determine. Ideally, your commercial location will get a lot of traffic, which requires that the tile is durable and easy to clean. On the other hand, you want it to be as lovely and unique as your company is.

Ceramic Tile is Affordable and Durable
The two main advantages of choosing ceramic tile are that it is both more affordable than many other options and it is more durable. It can be used both for indoor and outdoor commercial spaces. Ceramic is made by combining clay with other minerals. That combination is then treated under extremely high temperatures, which makes it very hard.
There are options within the world of ceramic tile. Glazed ceramic is a non-porous option that is naturally resistant to moisture. The glaze can be done with many different colors, which makes this a potentially bright and bold option. The other main option is unglazed ceramic. Left alone, it is porous, but it is easy to seal it so that it is moisture resistant.
Porcelain Tile is Durable and Versatile
Porcelain tile can be a good choice as well, thanks to its durability and versatility. It can fit in with just about any space in a commercial property. Treated under even higher temps than ceramic, porcelain tile is also more durable. It is extremely moisture-resistant, which makes it a top choice for bathrooms, kitchens, and even outdoor areas. It can withstand scuffs and scratches and looks great even with heavy traffic. You can also find porcelain in a wide range of designs.
Marble is Durable and Easy to Maintain
Yet another durable option, marble, is also very easy to maintain. It is quite luxurious and helps make a commercial property look high-class the instant a potential client or customer enters. That said, it is not particularly moisture-resistant, so it does require additional sealing. Another downside of marble is that it can stain more easily than other types of stone, and it is not available in many color or style options.
