Porcelain and ceramic tile are two of the most creative and versatile flooring materials available
Porcelain tile is quite popular because of its very high quality and durability. Since it is so strong, it can used in places like airport terminals, hotel lobbies and other high traffic areas. Porcelain is also highly water resistant so can be used where floors might get wet.
Commercial ceramic tile is manufactured from various types of red or white clay mixture, then fired in a kiln for strength. The finish is smooth and is available in a broad range of textures and colors. While very sturdy, ceramic tile might be better in a lower traffic area or interior walls applications and can be a lower cost alternative to porcelain tile.
For both porcelain and ceramic, the design choices are almost unlimited giving commercial interior designers a broad range of options when specifying for retail, hospitality and corporate environments, to name a few.
Many porcelain tiles can be used for exterior applications, and for those areas that experience below freezing temperatures, Associated Floors can suggest the best tiles for your redesign or new building project.
