Benefits Of Porcelain Tiles


Porcelain tiles are extremely durable and robust.

They’re harder than granite tiles, and are an excellent choice for heavy usage areas.Unlike ceramic tiles, the colour of a porcelain tile runs through the whole tile. This means if your tiles do get scratched, chipped or worn, this won’t be as noticeable as other types of tiles.

Porcelain tiles aren’t porous, which means they absorb stains or chemicals or become discoloured.

Porcelain tiles have low water absorption, are frost resistant and salt proof, so they’re the perfect tiles for outdoor areas. (However, always check with Europica staff before choosing outdoor tiles, as some are more suitable than others).

Porcelain tiles are designed to withstand intense fluctuations in temperature. They’re ideal for colder climates, as they’re resistant to cracking under freezing temperatures.

Porcelain tiles are easy to clean and maintain, and look stylish and fresh for years after installation.
