Porcelain is a popular choice for bathroom floor tiles because it can resist moisture and remain intact for years. These tiles are dense, impervious, fine-grained, smooth, and have a sharply formed face that makes an excellent addition to the clean lines in a kitchen or a bathroom environment. Given that porcelain tiles usually have a much lower water absorption rate of less than 0.5%, these tiles are more frost resistant or frost-proof than their non-porcelain counterparts. Consequently, they are highly adaptable to both indoor and outdoor use and are suitable for environments that have to endure extremes in terms of temperature and moisture.
Glazed porcelain tiles are also generally much harder and more resistant to wear and damage than non-porcelain ceramic tiles, making them suitable for use in all environments; from those with light residential traffic to those with heavy commercial traffic. Full-body porcelain tiles carry the color through the entire thickness of the tile, making them virtually impervious to wear and allowing them to sustain their look and feel during a very prolonged lifespan. Available in matte, unglazed or a high polished finish, there is a huge range of styles to suit every creative aspiration.
Ceramic or non-porcelain tiles are generally made from red or white clay fired in a kiln. Almost always finished with a durable glaze that carries the color and pattern, these tiles are used mostly for wall applications such as tub-surround walls or backsplashes. It’s worth taking into account that these tiles have a relatively high water absorption rating, and they are less frost resistant and are more prone to chipping. That being said, in the appropriate location they can still stand out as the best option, thanks to their authentic look and competitive pricing.
