Why choose Porcelain tiles?

Why choose Porcelain tiles? Porcelain tiles are as popular now as they have ever been. But why choose porcelain tiles over other options such as ceramic or stone for your home? Here we explore the benefits to be gained from the use of porcelain tiles.

Low Water Absorption

Their extremely low water absorption makes porcelain tiles the perfect choice for bathrooms, kitchens, wet-rooms and even swimming pools!

Greater Stain Resistance 

Along with being more water resistant than ceramic and stone tiles, porcelain tiles also benefit from greater stain resistance thanks to their denser, less porous properties.

Hard Wearing

Because porcelain tiles are much harder than ceramic tiles, they are an ideal choice for use on floors, being able to withstand the wear and tear that comes with them. 

Variety of Designs

But it’s not just all about substance with porcelain tiles; they certainly don’t scrimp on style either, and porcelain tiles come in a variety of styles and designs. Porcelain tiles can mimic natural stone such as limestone and granite, or other natural materials such as wood.

Polished porcelain tiles not only look fantastic, but they further decrease the tile’s water and stain absorption, along with adding the wow factor to any room!
