Porcelain Tile / September 4, 2018 / Brousseau.
You can never go wrong when you choose ceramic porcelain tiles for your home finishing. They are not only durable and practical porcelain tiles can transform an otherwise ordinary home into a lovely abode. Fabric cross-stitch patterns work very well in the home or office decors! The light and the shadow beside the 3D patterns are breathtaking. Otherwise, fabric often faces problems like dirt and may be difficult to maintain clean.
There are many different types of tiles on the market today. Most people want the best possible type of tile floor they can afford and they also want it to look beautiful and last for many years. There are also cleaning and maintenance issues that must be considered when choosing tile flooring. Many people desire the natural beauty of stone and are willing to deal with the increased cleaning and maintenance issues that come with stone. Other people like the uniform look of ceramic and porcelain and they do not want to deal with some of the hassles involved with stone tile floors.
Glazed porcelain tiles are ideal for the perfect flooring in your home. There are many differences between porcelain tiles and ceramic tiles for use on your floors or walls. Ceramic tiles are made from red or white clay and are fired then finished with a glaze that helps the pattern and colours to be sustained. These are normally easy to cut due to softer materials and have a PEI 0-3 rating. Porcelain tiles are made by dust pressed methods from porcelain clay that creates a fine grain and smooth face.
For your walls or ceiling the PEI Class 1 porcelain tiles are recommended because they are not subjected to any kind of weight. The PEI Class 2 may be used as bathroom floor tiles where the weight exposure is minimal while the PEI Classes 3 and 4 are ideal as table top or kitchen top and as flooring in any part of your home. The PEI Class 5 is highly recommended for residential or commercial use where there is heavy foot traffic. Porcelain tiles are all weather tiles that can withstand heat exposure during the summer and the freezing temperatures during winter.
