There are some types of porcelain tiles that are quality made and do have characteristics that are vastly superior to ceramic tiles. You should always only shop for quality name brand tiles at quality tile shops to ensure that you are truly getting a quality product. Ask many questions at the tile store and ask to see as many samples as possible before you actually purchase them. Remember that many times you will be paying a premium for porcelain as opposed to just normal ceramic tiles. In many cases especially with indoor tile installations ceramic tiles will perform just as well at a much lower price.
Porcelain tiles boast high quality, functionality, design and are a floor tile choice that can suit all budget requirements. Porcelain floor tiles are ideal, matching latest trends for high-end residential and large-scale commercial projects alike. This superior flooring tile choice is available in a variety of colours, textures, patterns, shapes and sizes, creating versatility and alternatives for individual application. Polished and unpolished variations create an elegant and stylish appearance to any home, whether traditional or contemporary.
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.
Sales of floor tiles in the U.S. and Canada have doubled in slightly over a decade, and the popularity of tiled floors continues to increase at a dramatic rate. The rise in tile sales can be attributed to two factors primarily: a determined and well-thought-out effort developed and sustained by marketing and sales forces within the industry; and by constant and significant improvements achieved by tile manufacturers over the past couple of decades. In slightly over twenty years we've come from fairly soft ”knob-back” floor tiles made from terracotta-like clays to extremely dense dust pressed porcelains that are all but indestructible. Walk into any tile salesroom today, and you will find mostly porcelain tiles displayed.
