Ceramic & porcelain tiles


A great choice for your home

When it comes to choosing a brand new floor covering, homeowners always want the very best for their lifestyle, requirements, and budget. The good news is that ceramic & porcelain floor tiles can fit into all these, plus more. It’s easily one of the most durable floor coverings available, it offers amazing options for style and design, and it has an excellent lifespan as well. Available in a variety of formats, you’re sure to find just what you’re looking for here.

Ceramic & porcelain tiles are sometimes confused for one another, as the differences between the two can sometimes be confusing. For instance, porcelain is made with only the highest quality clay and must meet a very precise standard. Ceramic flooring also has high-quality clay but is also mixed with other all-natural materials as well. Porcelain is the same color, throughout the entirety of the tile, while ceramic is a different color inside, which you’ll easily see if the tile is broken.

Both tiles can either be glazed or unglazed. Unglazed tiles give you the benefit of a more slip-resistant surface, which works well in areas where dampness can be an issue, but you’ll trade some of the water-resistant qualities at the same time. Ceramic & porcelain can be glazed with a liquid glass that offers a beautiful finish, ranging from completely clear to an exotic assortment of brilliant colors.
