Is Porcelain Tile the Right Choice for You?

Many tiles may look similar on the surface, but there are differences in production that set them apart. Porcelain tiles are fired in a kiln at extremely high temperatures creating a firm and stable material. Most porcelain tiles are glazed to give them an impervious seal for protection from liquids and stains. It’s a popular choice for a few reasons.

  • Affordability – Compared to other forms of tile, it is less expensive, making it ideal when you have to cover a large area.
  • Ease of maintenance – Porcelain tiles don’t require special treatment and are ideal for those who don’t want to worry about high-maintenance products.
  • Durability – When treated right, these tiles can last for a couple of decades as they’re one of the stronger tile options.

Enjoy the Beauty of Natural Stone

Natural stone’s unprocessed beauty adds warmth and charm wherever it’s installed. As the name suggests, the tiles are taken from natural materials directly from the earth, unlike ceramic which undergoes an engineering process. There are a few reasons why a homeowner chooses natural stone tiles over other options.

  • Value – Natural stone provides a timeless look that never goes out of style and adds value to your home.
  • Uniqueness – Because natural stone is not coated, the tiles will undergo transformation over the years, adding to their special look.
  • Durability – Like porcelain tile, they are rugged, resist stains from food and liquids, and are an easy floor to clean.
