Porcelain floor tiles are made of clay that is fired to a high temperature. Porcelain tile has the look and feel of natural stone, but it is more durable and less expensive. Porcelain tiles come in many different styles, colors and finishes. Here are some of the most popular types of porcelain floor tiles:
Ceramic tile was first made in China as early as the 11th century. Today, ceramic tile is produced throughout the world using a variety of materials, processes and finishes. The most common type of ceramic floor tile is glazed porcelain, which has an extremely hard surface that resists scratches and stains better than other types of ceramic tiles. Glazed porcelains also come in a wide range of colors, textures and designs. Unglazed porcelains can be used for kitchen backsplashes or bathroom floors because they are easy to clean with soap and water. Unglazed porcelains are often referred to as quarry tiles because they resemble rocks found in quarries where stone is mined from the earth. These quarry tiles have rough surfaces that give them a unique appearance and texture.
Traditional Porcelain Tiles
These traditional porcelain tiles have been around for years and are still popular today. The most common sizes you will find in this category has to be 12” x 12” or 12” x 24” tile sizes but there are also larger sized tiles available from 8” x 10” up to 18” x 18”. These smaller sized tiles can be used for kitchen splashbacks or bathroom walls as well as being used in place of wood flooring in bedrooms or living rooms. They come in a variety of colours, patterns and finishes so there is something to suit every taste and style of home décor.
Mosaic Porcelain Tiles
Mosaic porcelains are made up of small pieces of colored glass or stone pieces which are fixed onto a background of cement mortar or resin binders to create patterns on them. These patterns can be geometric or floral in nature depending upon the design chosen by you. Mosaic porcelains have become quite popular due to their beautiful appearance and durability
Glazed Porcelain Floor Tiles
Glazed porcelain is a glossy ceramic tile that has been coated with a thin layer of glassy material that gives it a shiny look. Glazing makes the tile more attractive and protects it from moisture damage. Like other types of ceramic tile, glazed porcelains are often used for countertops, shower walls, backsplashes and other wet environments because they resist staining easily.
Unglazed Porcelain Floor Tiles
Unglazed porcelains have a matte finish that works well in both residential and commercial settings because they don’t show dirt as much as other types of flooring materials do. Unglazed porcelains don’t require any special maintenance aside from occasional sweeping or vacuuming to keep them looking great for years to come!
