Porcelain tiles are ceramic tiles commonly used to cover floors and walls, with a water absorption rate of less than 0.5 percent. They can either be glazed or unglazed. Porcelain tiles are one type of vitrified tiles and are sometimes referred to as vitrified porcelain tiles. Although porcelain has been used for making tiles for many years, modern production methods and quantities have made porcelain tiles available for the average householder in recent years. It has quickly replaced ceramic tiles as the most popular option. The dense, hard surface of porcelain has made polishing a viable alternative to a glazed surface. This means that a tile can be fired, then a polish cut into the surface, creating a shine without a glaze. Porcelain is much harder than ordinary ceramic tiles and is usually selected, despite its higher price, for its hard wearing nature. Porcelain & Ceramic Tiles can be used in both wet and dry areas such as bathrooms, showers and kitchens.
