Modern floor tiles need to be tough, especially in homes with children and/or pets. There is one tile that is virtually stain-, scratch-, burn- and chip-resistant – tough enough to handle anything that’s thrown at it, and I do mean thrown. Porcelain floor tiles are manufactured from clay, and the resultant tile is so tough it can be used in industrial and commercial settings as well as the home.
The downside to a tough tile-like porcelain is that it is hard to work with when installing. Whole tiles are fine because they can be installed like every other type of tile. It’s the shaping of a tile for tricky areas that is difficult. Installers will tell you they go through more tile saws when installing porcelain than any other tile.
Because porcelain tiles are manufactured, the range of colors, patterns and finishes is infinite. This means there is always going to be a porcelain tile that matches your decor. Porcelain tiles are so versatile they can be used in any room including bathrooms, kitchens, and for outdoor applications. Porcelain tiles can also be used on walls and on benchtops allowing home owners the option to fully coordinate a room.
