Porcelain tiles are perhaps one of the most versatile tiles available. They can be used as wall tiles, for countertops, and for flooring. They perform very well in wet areas like showers and around bathtubs. Porcelain is tough, scratch-resistant, and competes with natural stone when it comes to durability, often at a fraction of the cost.
If you like the look of natural stone, but not the price, then fear not. You can find porcelain tiles that have been created to give a natural stone look. I hesitate to use the term ‘imitation stone’ because porcelain is a sound product in its own right. Made from fine very dense clay, porcelain is harder and more durable than ceramic; they are fairly tough to begin with.
So why use porcelain? Porcelain tiles can be used anywhere. If you want a great performing tile that looks great, is easy to clean and maintain, and is tough, then porcelain tiles tick the boxes. They perform extremely well in high traffic areas so they are well suited to commercial use in retail areas, offices, and even restaurants and commercial kitchens, as well as around the home. Porcelain really is the great all rounder when it comes to floor and wall tiles.
