Warm Substitutes for Ceramic Tile

DuraCeramic® Tile Ceramic Tile

DuraCeramic is a mixture of limestone composite and polymeric resin, which makes these floors hold more heat and chip less than ceramic tile. The material is also durable and stain resistant, which helps them last longer in entryways, kitchens, and bathrooms. If you want to match DuraCeramic’s toasty feel with warm colors, choose from a variety of natural shades that will make any room cozy. 

Shaw® Journey Tile 

Shaw Journey Tile is a luxury vinyl tile made to look like stone. While it can be grouted and presents well in any space, it is also just as affordable and warm as traditional vinyl. Choose from 10 colors in red, brown, and taupe tones, specially designed to dazzle in any home. This alternative to ceramic tile is also durable and resilient in high traffic areas. 


Armstrong® Alterna™ and Alterna Reserve™ are two limestone-based tiles that are expertly engineered and warm under your feet. Both styles are stain-resistant and chip-resistant, which make them perfect for families. When deciding between the two types, Armstrong Alterna appears more like classic limestone tile, while Alterna Reserve offers a bolder, more modern look. Whichever one you choose, each room in your home will look and feel warmer.
