You can never go wrong when you choose ceramic porcelain tiles for your home finishing. They are not only durable and practical, porcelain tiles can transform an otherwise ordinary home, into a lovely abode. To choose the right tiles that would best fit your needs, it is important not to get lost with such terms as ”ceramic tiles,” ”non-porcelain,” or ”ceramic porcelain.” All of these terms refer to a kind of ceramic ware, however they differ in characteristics, application and production method. Ceramic tiles are usually referred to as non-porcelain tiles, and they are easier to cut and have higher water absorption as compared to porcelain. Unlike porcelain tiles, ceramic tiles cannot absorb heavy impact or heavy foot traffic as they have a tendency to chip and abrade.
Porcelain tiles may be classified into natural, glazed, and polished tiles. The natural porcelain tile normally does not undergo any further finish after it is exposed to high temperature. This type of tile may be referred to as unglazed or through body tile where the colour goes all the way through. The glazed tile is coated with liquid glass that allows the manufacturer to put in a variety of designs and play around with colours. It comes out glossy and is one of the easiest to maintain. They are highly recommended as walls or accents in bathrooms and kitchen. The polished porcelain, on the other hand, goes through a more refined process and comes out looking almost like a granite finish or has a glossy effect without the glaze. In choosing the perfect ceramic porcelain tiles for your finishing, you must know the colour combination or contrast in the areas where you will install the tiles, and the kind of exposure the tiles may be subjected to. You may discuss these with your architect or interior designer, or you may refer to our website, and get in touch with us so we can assist you the best way we can.
