Porcelain tiles are known for their high absorption thereby making them durable and ideal for outdoor areas due to their density. Porcelain tiles are much harder than ceramic times and are very stain resistant. This type of tile can achieve a similar look to that of natural stone such as granite or limestone. Porcelain tile is found in two forms: thorough-bodied and glazed. Thorough-bodied Porcelain tiles are often used for floor tiles, countertops and wall tile because the durable texture hides imperfections as the color and texture does not have a glaze that could wear down. Glazed Porcelain tile, however, offers a finish and is featured in a wider variety of colors than the typical white tiles and grey tile colors. Porcelain tile is versatile as it can be utilized for indoor use on countertop tiles, flooring tiles as well as outdoor tiles areas such walkways, pools and more. An added benefit of porcelain tiles is their affinity to be used for in-floor heating.
