The Pros and Cons of Various Tile Materials

When it comes to tile flooring, many homeowners are afforded a variety of options. Today, we take a look at the most popular tile materials available on the market and the pros and cons of each, including porcelain, glass and ceramic.

Porcelain Tiles

They are among the top choices of tile flooring among homeowners because of their high-quality appearance and durability. Made of a combination of purified and refined clay, they are baked in extremely high temperatures to provide a hard, moisture-resistant floor surface for both indoors and outdoors. Despite this, they tend to be more expensive and heavier than other tile materials and are more difficult to cut.

Ceramic Tiles

Unlike porcelain, ceramic tiles are not fully vitrified during manufacturing and that they are porous if not glazed. Glazing the material, however, gives them a top protective layer to make them impervious to stains and water penetration. Also, they can withstand high humidity levels, which is why they’re a perfect choice for kitchens and bathrooms. You can find a wide assortment of ceramic tile shapes and sizes, allowing you to mix and match patterns to reflect your personality or theme for your home.

Glass Tiles

If you are looking for a reliable tile flooring solution, these tile materials offer an easy way to make a visual statement that fits your style. They come in a variety of patterns, sizes and types, with more available designs than what you’ll find in porcelain or ceramic ones. Their quality, however, ranges from low to high. You might find low-quality glass tiles that, if not handled carefully, can break or get damaged easily.
