Porcelain Tile / September 14, 2018 / Brousseau
The hardness of porcelain tiles is an advantage for more reasons than appearance. This quality makes these tiles far more scratch resistant than ceramic tiles. When tiles get scratched up you have to go to a lot of expense and trouble to get them polished out and sometimes even that isnt possible. Porcelain tiles are also more resistant to chipping. This hardy nature also makes them less slippery than ceramic tiles which makes them a better choice for safety reasons as well.
