If you’re looking for a timeless elegance for your home in a flooring selection, ceramic & porcelain tile
is definitely a great way to start your search. These floor coverings have been around for thousands of years, with some of the earliest pieces dating back to the year 4000 B.C. yet they are still frequently chosen today for the wealth of benefits they bring into every home. A striking beauty, durability, and functionality are just a few of the reasons these materials should be in your home.
Ceramic & porcelain tile are often spoken of interchangeably. Many people do not understand that even though these materials are very similar in some ways, there are also some differences that truly set them apart. For instance, porcelain is manufactured with a higher quality clay and has a through-body coloration that allows it to be left completely natural. If it breaks, there’s less chance you’ll notice it, because the color goes completely through. Ceramic, on the other hand, doesn’t have that characteristic, so they’re often covered with a glaze made of liquid glass, for bright, vibrant colors.
Porcelain tile is most often used from simple, minimal, or rustic designs that really play on the all-natural look of these tiles. You can even pick them out, one by one, to make sure you really get the look you want. It’s an appearance that matches nearly every decor, and the availability of various formats, even as large as 24 x 24, gives you the ability to use them in a variety of ways. Call us
