When deciding on the right tile for your project, there are many things to consider: durability, aesthetics, ease of maintenance, etc. Porcelain is one of the most popular materials for indoor and outdoor flooring and walls, with benefits comparable to natural stone.
Why is porcelain tile a perfect alternative for your remodeling project? We’ve rounded up some of the main reasons:
Porcelain is a natural, beautiful, versatile product due to its multiple designs and sizes. In addition, it is easy to clean and maintain, making it attractive and germ-free.
Porcelain is a good material that remains unchanged over time and is suitable for indoor and outdoor spaces. Porcelain tile is a unique material made from compressed clay dust that has been fired to extremely high temperatures. Much denser and more durable than other tiles, porcelain makes a low-maintenance and attractive covering for any floor.
Price is a significant factor, but many lean toward the most environmentally friendly material. Porcelain is extremely green, a 100% natural product made of raw and clay-based materials. Porcelain tiles are made with state-of-the-art technology that uses natural materials to produce minimal environmental impact.
The lifespan of ceramic tiles is above and beyond any other tile options commonly found on the market. If installed correctly and kept clean, porcelain is a material that lasts a lifetime. Also, porcelain tile is easy to clean by damp-mopping with a mild water-soap solution.
Porcelain is a timeless material because its range of colors, designs, sizes, and even installation shapes make it adaptable to almost any decorating trend. You can use it from the bedrooms to the kitchen, and even outdoors.
Tip: Consider ordering about 15 to 20% more porcelain than your project is estimated to require covering any installation accidents that may require replacement of the porcelain and have it available without loss of time, as well as be able to replace it in the event of future repairs (such as electrical or plumbing) that may require breaking the original porcelain.
