We love this question because porcelain is, without a doubt, one of the best materials for both indoor and outdoor floors. So come into our tile shop at Satolli Carpet & Floor Covering in our Warren, OH showroom to explore our extensive inventory and learn more.
Hard-wearing with unlimited colors
A type of ceramic, porcelain, is made of a non-porous clay called Kaolin, together with sand and glass. It's fired at higher temperatures, resulting in a heavy, denser tile that makes for an ideal floor tile in heavily trafficked floors like the kitchen or bath. However, the countless colors, patterns, and styles make it suitable for any room in the house, walls, and tub/shower surrounds.
Porcelain is entirely waterproof, whether or not it's glazed, and can be used outdoors on patio and deck floors and poolside; it stands up to any weather condition, including freeze-thaw cycles, which can crack other tiles. It also has through-body color, which means it goes all the way through, making (unlikely) chips invisible so the tile will never look shabby or in disrepair.
Wood-look tile: elegant, waterproof & high function
You’ll be amazed at what you see in our tile store because porcelain can be made to look like anything, from wood and stone to fabric and leather. By extension, wood-look floors, wood floors are trending, and that's expected to last at least 15 years. That means if you're longing for a wood look in the wet and steamy bathroom, porcelain may well be for you.
Technology, like Inkjet, creates intricate patterns such as the raised grains and swirls of genuine wood. There's an assortment of colors in any shade, whether light, dark, medium, or high variation; it can be cut into planks of any size.
