There was a time in the past when porcelain was synonymous with decorative pieces such as vases, chinaware, figurines, and the like. The misconception that porcelain was fragile or delicate was common. However, the many uses of porcelain have grown through time, and it continues to be a valuable material in the dental profession for dental prosthesis and dental veneers. Today, porcelain is a major industrial material used in insulation because porcelain is highly resistant to heat, resistant to abrasion, and is non-porous. That is why porcelain makes excellent floor tiles for both residential and commercial use.
As mentioned, most people find the look of clean white tile to be universally appealing. It adds a brightness to a living space, giving it the appearance of being more open and welcoming. This is where porcelain tiles have the advantage of the more common ceramic white tiles. Porcelain is sleek, clean and beautiful, and the difference in appearance is noticeable. In fact, they don't just look cleaner; due to their density and hardness, porcelain materials (tiles) are more impervious to dirt, and are much easier to clean. Your ceramic white tile will look lovely at first, but it won't be long before day-to-day dirt gets ingrained, and its permanently dingy.

Porcelain was first discovered in China, and it is believed to have been brought to Europe by the great merchant and explorer, Marco Polo. The term porcelain was derived from the translucent shell ”porcellana” because of it's similarity to the cowrie shell.
