Why is porcelain tile a good choice for floors?

Porcelain's construction makes it a heavier, denser tile that is strong enough to withstand serious foot traffic. It also has a low absorption rate, so it's waterproof whether or not it's glazed.

Many people come into our tile store asking why they should go with porcelain, so here’s a breakdown of the benefits.

A floor tile for kitchens & baths

Kitchens are the heart of the home, so they see a lot of wear. Meals are prepared, and there are spills and drops; family members gather to play games, do homework, and pay bills; pets run in and out and eat and drink in this room; guests congregate to visit with the cook, etc. In short, that room gets a lot of punishment.

Use it with confidence anywhere there might be heavy wear, including bathrooms, laundry areas, even living and family rooms.

You can even use this one outdoors; it's strong enough to stand up to the most severe weather, being an excellent choice for patio and deck floors and poolside.

Durable and Beautiful 

Porcelain is a large format tile, and that's what's trending right now--and projected to go into the following year. It comes in countless colors and designs and can be made to look like anything, including fabric, leather, wood, marble, granite, slate, travertine, terrazzo, quartz, limestone, and more. Some even say that porcelain comes in more shapes and styles than other ceramics. So feel free to go into our tile shop to look through our inventory.
Porcelain is also through-body color, meaning that it goes through the entire bisque instead of being in the glaze. That means if there's a chip or scratch, it won't show.
