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.
All of these characteristics seem to make porcelain the clear choice when it comes to quality, durability and easy of cleaning and maintenance. In reality the truth can be vastly different. The specifications regarding porcelain tiles are never verified or tested so any manufacturer can claim that their tiles are porcelain. Tile manufacturers can claim that they are manufacturing porcelain tiles without having them tested. In many cases tiles labeled as porcelain do not have the characteristics that make them quality tiles. There can be many quality issues regarding porcelain tiles that are sold at home improvement stores and discount tile stores. Many times these tiles are cheap imports that are vastly inferior with many quality control issues. Unwitting people thinking they are purchasing quality tiles that are superior to ceramic when in fact they are extremely cheap. These cheap tiles can present many problems in quality, durability and they can be extremely difficult to clean and maintain.
