Advantages Of Porcelain Tiles
Are they really the tile that are pretty much perfect for everywhere?
Yes they are. Porcelain tiles are the perfect choice for walls and floors alike and if you take a closer look in homes, hotels, bars and restaurants in London you will notice that they are used pretty much everywhere. Porcelain tiles are not only great value for money, they have many advantages over other materials such as natural stone, carpet, timber and laminate. Here’s why we love them:
Easy to life with
A huge benefit of porcelain tiles is how little maintenance they need to keep their good looks. They don’t need any sealing, waxing or polishing when they’re laid or on-going.
Resistant to stains
Busy life at home? Because porcelain tiles are virtually impervious it’s very difficult for wine, water and any other liquid to penetrate the surface. So when you spill something onto your newly tiled floor you can breath a sigh of relief and relax.
Wood Effect Porcelain, it’s trending!
Unlike laminate or real wood floors which can rot and swell when exposed to moisture, wood effect tiles are completely non porous and unaffected by water. So they be used safely in bathroom and other areas which frequently get wet, such as balconies, patios and swimming pools. And if you’re thinking of using porcelain tiles your bathroom or wet room, why not install underfloor heating to quickly dry up any splashes of water?
Hardwearing enough for even the busiest of homes
As porcelain tiles are immensely strong and durable, wear and tear becomes a thing of the past. Unlike natural stone and ceramic tiles, they won’t chip or crack easily and it takes an awful lot to damage the surface.
Contemporary extensions blur the traditional boundaries between indoor and outdoor living. One of the best ways to achieve this look is to use the same porcelain tile inside your living space and on your patio. Porcelain tile’s won’t crack in cold weather nor fade when the sun shines.
Sustainability is key
Here at Cast we are big on quality and sustainability that is why we don’t compromise when it comes to our tiles. We have chosen our tiles from suppliers who care about our planet and work hard to reduce their impact – for example, recycled products are used within our tiles rather than being sent to landfill.
