Today, porcelain tile use is on the rise in both kitchens and bathroom applications. Fired at an extremely high temperature, porcelain has a rich palette that is remarkably durable, lasting a lifetime while standing up to just about anything. The material offers durability, especially the through-body versions that won’t show chips from dropped pots or hair dryers like standard tile. As a versatile look, faux-wood porcelain can go in showers and other areas where wood won’t work.
As porcelain continues to increase in popularity, homeowners have fallen in love with larger-than-ever porcelain tile on floors and walls, especially with rectified edges. These allow for tighter installation that minimizes grout lines. This will provide a cleaner look and will allow for easy cleaning.
