One thing many homeowners often wonder when creating their dream house, is which flooring material would be best for their kitchen. For durability and good looks, porcelain kitchen tile flooring is a fantastic option. Plus, today there are a number of designer looks that can be achieved using porcelain tile, from marble look porcelain tile options that can give you the authentic look of marble, to porcelain tiles that look like wood
Porcelain tile can be considered an upgraded version of regular ceramic tile, due to a manufacturing process which makes it harder and less porous. Options include either glazed or unglazed styles. Glazed tiles come with a glass-like coating which can be manufactured in many colors. Unglazed porcelain tiles have a more naturally earthy color of the clays used to make them. And some porcelain kitchen flooring tiles are certified to be slip-resistant by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), which can be a safety plus in kitchens where spills may occur.
Here are a few good reasons to select porcelain tile for your kitchen flooring project:
The density of porcelain is what makes it highly resistant to liquid penetration, giving it an edge as compared to other types of flooring. If you opt for a glazed style porcelain tile, the surface becomes almost completely impervious to liquids.
Highly Stain Resistant
Porcelain tiles are highly stain- resistant. Unglazed porcelain is capable of repelling stain penetration better than other flooring options. If you select a glazed product it will be almost impossible to discolor the surface of your tiles.
Porcelain tiles are considered to be one of the toughest flooring options available on the market. Aside from being solid, porcelain tiles are also hard, dense, and highly resistant to most heavy impact stresses which makes it a perfect selection for both residential and commercial projects.
