Advantages of Porcelain Tiles: A professional guide

Porcelain tiles are perfect for a huge range of uses throughout the home. From floor tiles, to wall tiles, porcelain tiles suit a range of rooms and spaces, even small bathrooms. Here at Tiles 2 Go in Preston, porcelain tiles are some of our favourite. As a result, we have produced this guide to the advantages of porcelain tiles.

Low Maintenance

Porcelain tiles need very little maintenance to keep them looking amazing. In fact, even years after porcelain tiles have been laid, they can still look as good as new with a simple warm water mop. When you compare this to carpet that will wear out, or lino that will become ripped or torn, porcelain tiles are an effective and easy option.

Stain resistant

Unlike carpet that can stain easily, from red wine, to muddy footprints, porcelain tiles are stain resistant. Even when compared to natural stone, which needs to be sealed to prevent water stains, porcelain tiles are the better option.

Porcelain tiles that have been laid using the correct waterproof grout, are impervious. This means that be it or water or wine, your spillages will mop up easily, leaving no stains behind.


Porcelain tiles are hard-wearing, strong, and durable. When compared to ceramic tiles, porcelain tiles are the better option because they do not chip or crack as easily. In fact, for porcelain tiles, it takes a heavy blow to damage the tiles.

Because of the strength and durability of porcelain tiles, they are the perfect flooring option for areas with a large amount of footfall. This makes them perfect for commercial as well as domestic settings.

Environmentally Friendly

Finally, one of the biggest advantages of porcelain tiles is that they are eco-friendly. They are the best option for the environment, as well as your home, when it comes to wall or floor coverings. This is because many items from glass bottles to TV screens can be recycled into porcelain tiles, rather than be put into landfill. This makes them the perfect choice for households that are environmentally conscious.
