Tile in Florida


Tile is a versatile and timeless flooring choice for homeowners and businesses. When buying tile, it's important to consider your design goals and the tile's specific use. Some tiles are made for commercial settings where heavy foot traffic and spills are inevitable, while others are perfect for kitchen & bath.


At Carpet One Floor & Home, we offer one of the best tile selections in the area, including floor and wall tiles, bath tiles, shower tiles, backsplashes, and beyond.


Visit us at one of our three flooring store locations in Jacksonville, Orange Park, and Saint Augustine, Florida.




Tile for Florida Living

As the sunshine state, we experience a lot of hot and humid weather which can cause damage to other types of flooring such as buckling and warping.


Tile is an excellent flooring choice for Florida’s climate since it is heat and moisture resistant. Whether it’s a long day at the beach or a trip to one of the many national parks or nature reserves nearby, sand and dirt will inevitably find their way into your home.


With its low maintenance, a simple mop or sweep is all that is necessary to keep your tile floors clean.


Best Types of Tiles

There are three main types of tiles: ceramic, porcelain, and stone.


Ceramic and porcelain are made from a mixture of clay and other natural materials which is then fired in a kiln. Stone tile is made entirely from a single slab of natural rock and stone.



  • Ceramic Tile is lightweight and versatile. It’s extremely durable and water resistant, with tons of styles to choose from


  • Porcelain Tile is denser and more durable than ceramic. It’s also heat-resistant and waterproof, making it great for indoor and outdoor use.


  • Stone Tile brings unique, high-end looks. Though very durable, it needs to be treated for full waterproofing. Stone is great for indoor and outdoor use



What Is Wood-Look Tile?

Wood-look tile gives you the ability to enjoy a natural hardwood look without sacrificing the qualities of tile.


By using modern printing technology, a realistic wood-grain image is printed on each tile. The print can create a custom wood-look tile that breaks up the typical pattern you’d see in a hardwood floor. Even the color of the grout between tiles can be customized into a natural wood hue that blends with the wood-look tile. 


Typically, homeowners complain about hardwood not being able to resist heat or moisture, particularly here in Florida. Wood-look tile can resist heat and water, so you can have gorgeous wood-look floors in places like your bathroom or kitchen.

Best Shower and Backsplash Tile

Why limit yourself to installing tiles on the floor when you can also install them on the walls?


Kitchen and bathroom renovations usually begin with a fresh coat of paint and new tiles for a custom tile backsplash or shower. Whether you want something simple and understated or bold patterns that stick out, wall tiles create a beautiful focal point for everyone to see.


What Are the Benefits of Backsplash Tile?


  • Protect your walls
  • Easy to clean
  • Easy to install and replace
  • Affordable
  • Durable
  • Heat and water resistant



Can I Install My Own Tile?

While we’re sure you can do anything you set your mind to, we strongly advise against installing the tile yourself.


We have professional in-house installers to help you complete your tile project. After we have helped you find the perfect tile, we can help answer questions about installation and schedule a FREE at-home visit to measure your home.


Before any installation, we do moisture testing, especially in bathrooms and basements where moisture is most common. 


Our flooring experts can help you find what tile is best for places with a lot of humidity and moisture.
