Cheap tiles can have quality control issues. Many times people choose their sample tile and then order them. When the shipment arrives they can look vastly different from the ones that were originally ordered. Often the colors and textures can look different from the sample. Other times there may be surface scratches or other imperfections that make them look ugly. Once the shipment arrives at your door it can be extremely difficult to return them and ship them back. Other times the quality control issues are not noticed until the tiles are installed and then the manufacturer will never accept returns on already installed tiles no mater what types of problems they have.
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.
