Ceramic & Porcelain Benefits and Facts

Bathrooms and kitchens are some of the first rooms that come to mind when ceramic & porcelain tile are mentioned and for good reason. The water resistance of these materials is exceptional and these floors can even be installed inside the shower. Of course, with this installation, a good slip resistant coating should be applied to the tiles, as your flooring specialist will explain.

That same water resistance is also a good idea in other rooms as well and is one reason many homeowners choose to use ceramic & porcelain for all their floors. In addition to adding another level of protection against spills and dampness, these materials are hard-wearing enough for any room. They are hard, dense, and durable with a lifespan averaging 50 years with proper care and maintenance.

For kitchen use, you’ll be pleased to know that ceramic & porcelain inhibit the growth of mildew, mold, and bacteria, so it’s a much safer and healthier material for this space. Easy to clean and disinfect, it’s often a choice even for commercial kitchens and dining rooms. At the same time, it’s easy to clean and maintain which makes it an even better choice for these areas, where spills and stains can often be an issue for the busy kitchen.
