Even though we are a relatively new business in the GTA, we have a constantly expanding gallery of tiles to choose from, as well as a dedicated and experienced team of experts to help you make the best decision for your space. However, there are a number of questions one should ask before making a final decision in choosing the right kitchen or bathroom tiles.

What is Porcelain Tile?

Porcelain tile presents a flooring solution produced from very dense clay that is fired at higher temperatures as compared to standard ceramic tile flooring. Porcelain often contains other natural material additions, which are blended with clay and later fired in a furnace. The resulting tiles are non-porous and highly uniform, making them ideal for areas with fluctuating temperatures.

Most of the time, porcelain tile has the same thickness as ceramic tile, even though it is noticeably heavier. In addition, porcelain comes in more shapes and styles than ceramics, which can prove useful for various applications.

Porcelain vs. Ceramic Tile

While most people assume that porcelain and ceramic tiles are virtually identical, this isn’t the case. Most types of tiles that contain clay and are kiln-fired are considered to be “ceramic tiles.” This larger classification group can then be split into two sub-groups: porcelain and non-porcelain tiles. These non-porcelain tiles are commonly also called “ceramic,” as opposed to the porcelain sub-group.

Is Porcelain Tile Right For Your Home or Workspace?

Low Moisture Content

One unbeatable benefit that porcelain has over other types of tiles is frost-resistance due to its lower moisture content. As a result, porcelain tiles are less likely to break when freezing, which makes them ideal for both indoor and outdoor applications.

Durability

Porcelain is a lot more durable than many other materials, and its longer lifespan makes it a worthwhile investment. Even though it is similar to marble and limestone, porcelain outperforms these two materials, as well as slate and granite, in terms of its low-maintenance, long-term beauty.

Easy to Clean

Porcelain is even less porous than ceramic, which makes it one of the easiest tile materials to clean. Even though porcelain tiles in Toronto can be difficult to install, their durability makes them an excellent choice for light to medium duty residential and commercial tiling projects.

Versatility

An added benefit of buying porcelain tiles in Toronto, and something we capitalize on, is its versatility in style and options. Whether you want to use porcelain tiles on your bathroom floor or desire backsplash tiles in your home kitchen, our well-priced selection is perfect for almost any use.

Aesthetic Appeal

One of the main benefits of porcelain tiles is the way they look. Porcelain consists of high-quality natural components put together to create an almost luxury material. Many times, porcelain tiles look better than similar ceramic tiles, truly transforming the space. This flooring solution comes in a range of designs, and some styles that we carry are truly stunning.
