Ceramic Tile

For centuries tile has stood the test of time as a floor covering prized for both its beauty and durability. The wide array of colors, patterns and materials available make tile a versatile option to craft unique and unforgettable floors that fit seamlessly into any design sensibility.

A Florida Natural

Visually striking in any climate, tile floors are uniquely suited to sultry Tampa Bay summers. Tile has naturally insulating properties; it remains temperate and dispels heat, so even on the hottest days your new tile floor will stay cool and soothing beneath your feet. 

Florida’s frequent warm weather rainstorms and high humidity can lead to the growth of mold and mildew that quickly invades carpet fibers and other floor coverings. Tile is a sanitary solid surface that is non-porous, bacteria resistant and easy to clean, making it the perfect choice for your Tampa home or business.

At Gulf Tile and Cabinetry, we offer a selection of tile that is second-to-none, from leading manufacturers. Whether you are designing a room that is traditional, transitional or contemporary, we’ve got your floors covered.

Ceramic

Porcelain Tile

With greater strength, a lower absorption rating and higher resistance to abrasives than ceramic, porcelain tile is gaining ground in interior design, and currently make up about 25 percent of the market in Tampa Bay. When nothing less than the best will do, we offer a wide range of porcelain tile: a manufactured material that mimics the look of natural stone and hardwood

Porcelain tile is manufactured as either glazed porcelain with a porcelain layer on top or thru-color porcelain when the color in consistent across the entire cross section.   Thru-color porcelain tile is stronger and maintains color after wear or chipping.

Whether you’re designing a traditional Tuscan kitchen or a sleekly modern contemporary bath, we have tiles in finishes to complement your décor.

Rectified

A new style, manufacturers shave the edges of the tile so they have less variation in size.   Contractors can set the rectified tile closer to each other to create a cleaner look.  Learn more on our rectified tile blog post.

Decorative and Mosaic Tiles

The sky’s the limit when it comes to the creative designs you can achieve with glass, ceramic or natural stone mosaic tiles. Use these customizable sheets to create eye-catching liners, borders or effects that will make your floor treatment truly sing.  Learn more about our selection of iT decorative tile.
