Porcelain Tile: An Elegant Choice
While porcelain is immediately associated by many people with toilets and figurines, this can also be found in many other areas around the house such as the countertops in the kitchen, in the walls of showers and floors. Porcelain floor tile is a relative to the family of ceramic but it’s more durable, as well as more resistant to stains and scratches. Certified 100% porcelain tile is fired at higher temperatures than regular ceramic tile, so it’s denser, less porous, and shows better wear characteristics. Porcelain tile is also easy to clean, and offers superior wear resistance by providing stain resistance and being 30% stronger than granite.
When it comes to the color, with new porcelain tiles the color runs down around the tile giving the floor a much better look. While being virtually impervious to wear, these tiles are suitable for any application from residential to the highest traffic commercial or industrial applications. Porcelain tiles are available in matte, unglazed or a high polished finish. Please feel free to look through our online database and contact us with any questions that may arise.
