All You Need to Know About Porcelain Tile, Anchorage, Alaska

If you’re looking to change your countertops or lay a floor in your bathroom or kitchen, you’re probably considering using tile. There are many different types you can choose from—including marble, limestone, or slate—but the most popular is porcelain. Rino’s Tile & Stone in Anchorage, AK, has provided some information about porcelain tile to show why it’s so popular.

Types of Porcelain Tile

There are two types of porcelain tile—through-body and glazed. Through-body porcelain is strong and durable with its color and texture, disguising chips or scratches. Glazed porcelain is covered in a hard finish. It’s strong and dense, offering a wider variety of colors and designs. If you’re more interested in a unique design and various colors, glazed is the best option.

Benefits of Porcelain

The fact that it’s so water-resistant makes it a common choice for kitchens and bathrooms, where water is likely to reach the floor. Most flooring materials are exclusively used indoors, but porcelain tile can be used outside as well, without the fear of being damaged by water or freezing weather during the winter.

Many people enjoy porcelain tiles because of the unlimited design features it offers. You can put any style, color, texture, or pattern on it to match what you want. A unique feature of this material is that it can be made to look like other tile types, such as marble or hardwood, without losing its unmatched durability.

The durability and design options of porcelain tile make it a popular choice for homes.
