Infrared thermal imaging shows Alterna tiles are warmer than ceramic tiles underfoot.

Alterna vs.
Ceramic & Stone

Our durable engineered stone construction makes Alterna tiles a perfect alternative to ceramic and stone:

  • Wamer to the touch than ceramic or stone
  • More comfortable underfoot
  • Easy-to-clean surface resists stains and soil
  • Strong, yet flexible enough to cover subfloor irregularities that can crack ceramic or stone tile

Flooring Patterns

Our most popular collections are available in multiple shapes and sizes, so you can create a unique floor pattern that’s all your own.

You can grout Alterna, just like ceramic, or install it without grout.

Armstrong’s acrylic grout is ready to use, requires no sealing, and resists moisture, stains, and cracking.

On the Wall

The natural beauty of Alterna isn’t limited to floors! Use Alterna, with or without grout, as a decorative backsplash, accent wall, or other focal point to bring added style to your space.

* Alterna is not recommended for shower walls, fireplace surrounds, or any wall application that exposes it to continuous saturation or temperatures above 300°F.
