If you are looking to improve your bathroom flooring, now is the perfect time to consider Porcelain tile flooring. These tiles can really make a difference to your bathroom interiors. They are durable and maintenance free, making them the preferred choice of many homes. These tiles are available in a wide range of designs and colours, so finding those that suit your style isn't a problem. Porcelain is from the family of ceramics and was used in creating decorative pieces such as vases and figurines, prior to being used as tiles. No longer is Porcelain considered fragile, and is used extensively in a number of areas.
But the misinformation continues. The Porcelain Enamel Institute rates glazed floor tiles as to their resistance to abrasion. Glazed tiles are those to which a decorative layer has been applied over the clay body of the tile. Glazes are rated 1 through 5 with 5 being the highest or most durable grade. Many, if not most, porcelain tiles are not glazed, yet ask your tile sales person about the PEI rating of the porcelain tile you are examining in the showroom. It's very likely you'll hear something like, ”Oh, this is a grade 5 porcelain tile. You could lay this baby in a car factory.” I certainly don't aim to demean tile sales people. We need them and love them. Without them we'd be out of work. I do wish they'd get themselves a little better informed, though, so they can better inform the buying public about the virtues of ALL ceramic tiles.
