The term porcelain was coined from the Italian word ”porcellana” because of its translucent characteristic similar to the cowrie shell. Porcelain was first developed in China and was exported to Europe between the 17th and 18th century. Beautiful jars and other delicate ornaments were made from porcelain, but the discovery of its base material from soft paste to hard past has made porcelain an important industrial commodity. Porcelain is resistant to high temperatures, resistant to abrasions, and is also non-porous, which allows very minimal water absorption. Today, porcelain is an important material for insulation and is popularly used for dental prosthesis and veneers. That is why porcelain tiles are excellent choices for residential and commercial finishing.
Porcelain tiles are an ideal choice for floor tiles and have been for some years, they are durable, hard wearing and come in a wide range of colours, styles and designs. Porcelain tiles are also extremely easy to maintain and they make great additions to both kitchens and bathroom floors. Porcelain tiles are also reasonably priced and are relatively easy to install, they also come in a wide variety of sizes and shapes which will add a real unique design to both your kitchens and bathrooms. There are different types of porcelain; polished, unglazed and glazed, glazed porcelain is probably the most common and popular porcelain tile. The glazed is non porous and can be of the polished variety but if installed on bathrooms and kitchen floors will almost certainly need sealing to protect it from moisture levels. Glazed porcelain is extremely durable and stain resistant which makes them the most popular tile for the home.
