More on Porcelain
Porcelain tile is part of the ceramic family. It’s smooth, impervious, and a popular choice for floors, walls, backsplashes, and countertops. It is affordable, versatile, and has the ability to mimic other types of materials like stone or wood. Porcelain is stain resistant and requires little maintenance. It also has a through-body composition, meaning it maintains its color all the way through which helps to camouflage chips and dings. Considering wood floors? Wood-look porcelain gives you the look and feel of wood, without the worry of scratches or warping, especially in rooms with lots of moisture.
Porcelain is not only great for indoor use. Its water and frost resistance make it an excellent choice for outdoor areas, as well. Its water absorption rate is less than 0.5%, considerably less than non-porcelain tiles. Glazing porcelain further increases its strength and damage resistance. Making it suitable for a wide variety of applications, from light use to heavy commercial foot traffic.
