3 Reasons to Consider Porcelain Tile for Your Kitchen, Anchorage, Alaska

Are you building a new home or remodeling your kitchen? Along with creating a layout, you’ll have to decide on what materials to use for the countertop, backsplash, and flooring. For most homeowners, selecting a type of tile is a crucial part of this planning process. Below, Rino’s Tile & Stone in Anchorage, AK, explains a few reasons many of their clients opt for porcelain tile in the kitchen.

Why Porcelain Tile Might Be the Perfect Fit for Your Kitchen

1. Easy Cleaning

Porcelain tile has a nonporous surface, meaning it won’t absorb spills. To clean it, simply wipe the surface with a damp cloth and a little dish soap. This is a fantastic option for households with experimental home cooks, energetic pets, and occasionally messy children. 

2. Durability

porcelain tilePorcelain is made out of fired clay that is incredibly dense. The temperature used during the firing process makes it harder than granite. For a kitchen that gets a lot of use, this tile might be the perfect option, as it’s not prone to cracking or chipping. If damage does occur, it’s also easy to replace—a fact that might play into your decision-making process.

3. Color Options

You can find porcelain tile in every color imaginable and use it to create a beautiful custom backsplash with fun patterns and hues that match the rest of your home. Go for a monochromatic look with just one color in several shades or choose a variety for a creative-looking space.
