Tile can be found in many shapes and forms across Contra Costa County. Homeowners put it to use as flooring, shower tiling, backsplashes, patios, and even coffee table coasters. Its versatility is one of the things we at Floor Coverings International Concord love about tile. There are many different material and style options available, but one very popular type of tile that we’ll look at today is porcelain. Known for its heightened durability and affordability, there are many things that make porcelain tile a great choice for homes in the Concord, Walnut Creek, Lafayette, & Martinez, CA area.
About Porcelain Tile
Porcelain is actually a subtype of ceramic tile, both of which are some of the most popular types found in Concord homes. It’s essentially ceramic tile that has been fired at higher temperatures to increase its density and enhance its durability. Although designed more for commercial applications because of its strength, porcelain tile’s infinite design potential has made it equally popular for residential use.
Benefits & Uses of Porcelain Tile
There are many benefits of choosing porcelain tile for your home. One of them is porcelain is denser and less porous than ceramic, making it more resistant to stains and moisture. This makes it great for bathrooms and kitchens, as well as other areas of the home that come into frequent contact with water. Porcelain is also more resistant to scratches, making it suitable for high-traffic areas. Another benefit of porcelain is it offers a seemingly endless number of design possibilities. You can achieve nearly any color, pattern, or finish you want. Its style versatility combined with its durability makes it a desirable flooring material that fits well into a diversity of environments.
