Porcelain Floor Tile
Porcelain tile is a popular choice for bathroom floors and walls. As a denser, less porous and harder option, porcelain offers greater stain and water resistance than ceramic tile. It's suitable for radiant in-floor heat to keep feet toasty on cool mornings. Porcelain offers unmatched design versatility and tiles can mimic natural stone varieties, such as granite and limestone. Newer designs draw inspiration from exotic locales and fashion runways, with surfaces that evoke leather, fabric, and even animal prints.
What is Porcelain Tile?
Before getting into the benefits and drawbacks of porcelain tile, it makes sense to go over what it actually is. It’s a flooring solution made from very dense clay that’s fired at higher temperatures than standard ceramic tile flooring is. Porcelain tile is made from clay, and other natural materials blended together and fired in a furnace. It’s known for being highly uniform in construction and non-porous. This makes it better for spaces with fluctuating temperatures and a more reliable option for radiant heating solutions. Generally, porcelain tile comes in the same thicknesses as ceramic tile, but it’s heavier overall. It is also offered in more shapes and styles than ceramic tile is, which is why some people decide to go with the product.
