What is Porcelain Tile?

porcelain tileAs the second most popular type of flooring, aside from ceramic, porcelain tile provides many benefits to property owners.  Porcelain tile is constructed quite similar to ceramic as manufacturers use clay and other natural materials and then fire the materials in a kiln in order to create specific shaped stones.  This particular type of flooring provides property owners with the opportunity to have a resistant, durable, and reliable floor implemented into their home or business.

The Advantages of Porcelain Tiles

Prior to making your final decision on the type of flooring that you want installed, you will want to consider the advantages associated with each type of flooring.  Porcelain tiles, in comparison to other types of flooring, are far more advantageous.

1. Strong and Hard

The largest benefit associated with porcelain tiles is that they are incredibly strong and hard, even more than ceramics.  With that being said, you can rest assure that your tiles won’t experience any wear and tear due to people constantly walking on them.  If you have an area of your home that experiences an ample amount of traffic, consider using porcelain tiles.  Also, these tiles can be beneficial for places of business.

2. Aesthetically Pleasing

Porcelain tiles provide home owners with the opportunity to choose different colors, shapes, and styles of flooring to help match the aesthetic appeal of the rest of their home.  Instead of relying on generic hardwood flooring or carpet, porcelain tiles provide more customization options.  Also, they are generally more pleasing to the eye than other types of flooring.

3. Less Staining

Another large benefit associated with porcelain flooring is that it is less absorbent than other types of floors, therefore you won’t experience any staining in the event of spilled drinks, food, or chemicals.  Also, with such a low rate of absorption, property owners won’t have to worry about water being spilled on the floor and needing to immediately clean it up.

4. Simple Cleaning and Maintenance

As a home owner you are undoubtedly aware of how important it is to keep your floors and your home clean.  Porcelain tiles are incredibly simple to clean as there are an array of different products that can be used to maintain the look of your flooring.  Even if you are not interested in using products, you can simply clean your floor with a damp mop.  Porcelain floors do not require any polishing, waxing, or sealing.
