Porcelain Tile Floors
Porcelain tile floors are by far the
strongest of any manufactured flooring today. Although more expensive
than standard ceramic, they provide durability and resiliency not found
in any other fired flooring. They are now being made in sizes up to 24
by 24, and are available in many styles and colors.
Porcelain tiles are suitable for use almost anywhere such as countertops,
tub surrounds, showers, floors, literally anyplace you can think of. Still very
popular in mosaic form for pools and bath walls and floors, they have now found
their way into entire living areas. Porcelain glazes can be bright and
glossy or matted. Some of the pieces seem to be almost translucent.
One drawback though, if it can be considered that, is that porcelain tiles are
generally not uniform in size. This is due to the fact that they are
fired at very high temperatures, which can cause distortion or warpage. Quality
manufacturers such as Porcelanosa, consistently make products that are calibrated extremely
well, which means all pieces will be uniform and consistent. Therefore,
in order to avoid a "look" that is not as regimental as it
should be, make your selection from a reputable company.
