Tile flooring makes your home shine

Tile is a design tool. As many designers say, the floor is the biggest expression of your style. As a tile retailer in Adel, IA, we know the possibilities for design are endless, with all the different colors, patterns, designs, shapes, and sizes.

It is also functional, with an amazing number of benefits, one of which is energy savings. It's a great heat conductor with the ability to transfer either chilliness or heat to your entire body. That equates to savings on air conditioning and heating bills.

Since 1976, Archer Home Center has been helping people reach their dreams. We carry a full inventory of various floor coverings, appliances, and other furnishings. Our philosophy is that this kind of one-stop shopping allows you to visualize the entire room, cabinets, countertops.

This gives you a cohesive, overall picture of your remodeling result. You'll be able to see just how they coordinate with other remodeling materials. Call us and we'll tell you more about what we can do together.

Creativity abounds in tile flooring

While it used to be seen mostly in the kitchen and bath, tile flooring makes a stunning statement in the living room or home office. Whether it's the floor medallion, spectacular floor-to-ceiling backsplash, or a colorful and intricately designed accent wall, you can mix and match traditional squares with subway pieces and mosaics. Add in a few glass pieces, those reflective and shimmering tiles, as accents.

High traffic floors need heavy performance

While all kinds are tough, one especially stands out: porcelain, a type of ceramic, made of clay with sand and glass. As a result, it's heavier, denser, and great for high traffic floors. It's also waterproof and frost resistant, so feel free to use it outside. Porcelain is a large format piece, available in many colors and patterns and can be made to look like anything, from wood to marble.

Ceramics are thinner, but also tough. They are highly decorative and best used indoors on lower traffic floors. They are often used to create accent walls or backsplashes. When glazed, they are waterproof.
