If you are looking into replacing the flooring tiles in your home then it can be difficult to know where to start- do you invest in natural stone tiles or save money with vinyl flooring? We recommend porcelain tiles as the best solution to tick all of your boxes as they come in every pattern you can imagine, including stone effect, meaning that they look the part but without the high cost.
Durability like no other
Porcelain is the perfect material for floor tiles because it is naturally hardwearing and stands up better to wear and tear than natural stone materials do. It can difficult to keep natural stone tiles looking their best, as they are prone to staining if they haven’t been fully sealed, and they require specialist cleaning products. Porcelain tiles are easy to maintain as they do not require resealing, and they are easy to clean. Simply use a standard floor cleaner to regularly mop them and they will stay looking brand new for years to come.
Use in any room
Porcelain tiles are very tough thanks to the process in which they are made. They are fired in a kiln at extremely high temperatures which results in a dense material that is naturally hardwearing. This means that they can often be used externally as well as internally- look for a frost resistant tile if you want to add outdoor flooring. This is another area in which porcelain stands out as the best flooring choice, as natural stone flooring is not always suitable for rooms with a lot of moisture and temperature changes such as bathrooms, whereas porcelain can be used in any room of the house.
Stone effect tiles without the price tag
The best thing about porcelain tiles is that they come in almost every colour and design you can imagine. This makes them easy to add to a room that you have already decorated, as it is simple to find a tile that complements or matches your existing colour scheme. If you want the look of natural stone such as limestone or granite but don’t want to pay the higher costs associated with installing these kinds of flooring then porcelain is a fantastic substitute as you can often find stone-effect tiles that look just like the real thing.
