What types of finishes are available for Porcelain Tile?
Porcelain Tile comes in various finishes to choose from. The right finish can accentuate the space, but it is vital to consider the functionality and the application. For example, glossy tiles are bright and reflective, but the slippery nature may not suit wet areas like bathrooms. Matte surfaces have low reflection, but their anti-skid property makes them safe to use on floors. Iridescent tiles give a holographic impression and add an interesting decorative touch. Within Porcelain Tile we carry Polished, Glossy and Matte.
What is the difference between porcelain and ceramic tiles?
Both porcelain and ceramic tiles are made from clay, but the difference lies in the temperature and type of clay used. Porcelain tiles are made from refined clay and are kiln-fired at a high temperature, making them highly durable and non-porous. Ceramic tiles are made of less fine clay at a lower temperature, and the outcome is less dense and more porous. Porcelain tiles are waterproof and suited for indoor and outdoor areas with high traffic and moisture levels such as walls, commercial spaces and bathrooms. Porcelain tiles are also more expensive than other types of tiles. We carry Porcelain Tile in various colors and finishes including Polished, Glossy and Matte.
