When it comes to choosing tiles for your home, porcelain really is a great tiling option for a variety of reasons, and porcelain tiles are a very popular choice for kitchens and bathrooms alike. Here we give a quick guide to some of the many reasons why porcelain tiles are the perfect option for your home.
Strong and durable
Made from incredibly strong and durable materials, porcelain tiles are the perfect design choice for floors and walls alike, and are a great option for areas under heavy use such as your hallways and the kitchen. Porcelain tiles also have the added advantage of offering greater scratch resistance than other tile varieties, and are also very easy to maintain.
Porcelain tiles are renowned for their moisture resistance, making them a great flooring choice for bathrooms as they typically offer greater stain and water resistance than other tile varieties such as ceramic tiles. Interestingly, both porcelain and ceramic tiles are clay based, however the key difference between these popular tile choices is that porcelain tiles are baked to a much higher temperature and greater pressure during the manufacturing process, making them much harder and denser.
The great thing about porcelain tiles is that because they’re so durable and long-lasting you won’t need to worry about replacing them for a long time. However, this does also mean it’s important you choose a design and colour that’s right for you. Luckily, porcelain tiles offer great design versatility, so you’re sure to find something to suit you and your home. A key advantage of porcelain tiles is that, the design options are almost endless. Porcelain tiles are available in a variety of colours, designs, and finishes and can even be made to mimic natural materials including stone varieties, such as granite or marble.
