Through-bodied porcelain is ideal for commercial locations because they withstand heavy foot traffic. The color won't fade because there is no glaze and if a tile does chip, the color is the same underneath, making the chip less noticeable. These tiles can also be installed in homes as flooring, on walls or countertops, and in wet locations such as the kitchen or bathroom. Glazed porcelain tile is made from porcelain (a mixture of clay, sand and minerals), fired in a kiln and has a glazed finish. The glaze is usually tinted and is a glass wear layer (liquid glass) that is baked into the surface and gives the tile its final color. If glaze is then polished, the tile must be sealed after installation to make it non-porous. The glaze finish makes this tile stain resistant and has more color and texture options.
It is important to choose porcelain tiles that are of a consistent size. Layout a few rows from the sample lot and you will be able to judge if they are the same size. The sample you lay out should be square if the size of each tile is the same. This is the time to check for cracks in the finishing. Once you get the colour combination right, you may go ahead and purchase porcelain tile flooring for your bathroom. Patterns, designs, and colour combinations are something you may want to discuss with your architect or interior designer.
