Tile floors have become pretty popular in recent years due to both their aesthetic quality and their relative ease of maintenance. Plus, it’s easy to match tile flooring to nearly any design aesthetic and porcelain tile is especially suited to being primarily an aesthetic choice since it offers so many design options without ever sacrificing durability. Here are a few reasons why porcelain tile could be the best choice for your home.
Porcelain tile is actually a subtype of ceramic tile and is a solid addition to a variety of designs, as well as a great option overall for a variety of homes, even those with large pets or small children. Porcelain is highly durable and able to stand up to daily wear and tear even in commercial environments, making it a good choice for large, active families or anyone with pets. The tile’s hard surface makes it easy to keep clean with just a broom and porcelain’s low natural porosity makes it resistant to staining so there’s no need to worry about spills and messes.
The way porcelain tile is manufactured gives homeowners an essentially unlimited range of design options, making it easy to find a tile that matches your home and personality. While a specialized setting material is needed for proper installation since porcelain tile is less porous than ceramic, it’s a small price to pay to make sure that the flooring is secure and will last for years after the initial install.
