What are tiles?

Tiles are an excellent flooring choice for areas of your home regularly exposed to dirt and water. Made from natural minerals and materials, ceramic and porcelain tiles are resilient, easy to clean, available in a plethora of styles and require little maintenance. Cleaning tiles simply implies wiping the debris/spill/dust with a damp cloth.

Porcelain versus ceramic

Homeowners think of porcelain and ceramic as two distinct materials. However, porcelain is just another form of ceramic. The main difference here is that porcelain is made from finer clay dust – feldspar, kaolinitic minerals or quartz – and is fabricated at higher temperatures.

Ceramic tiles are also quite durable and include a high resistance to scratches, flame, slip, stains. They are extremely easy to clean and will not fade if they are exposed to UV rays.
