How is porcelain made?
Porcelain is made from clay mixed with certain additives and water. It’s been used for many years in high traffic areas but it had limitations when it comes to style and design. Most people thought of porcelain tiles as boring and plain. However, technology advancements have allowed manufacturers to create porcelain tiles in a range of designs.
Porcelain tiles now come in different finishes such as polished, matte and semi-polish and offer the same kind of resilience they used to. In fact, porcelain is said to be three times stronger than granite. The lack of permeability and translucency brings the beauty of porcelain a notch higher.

Benefits of porcelain tiles
Porcelain is a material with features quite similar to ceramic. It’s typically white or grayish in color. One of the biggest advantages of porcelain tiles is their low moisture content. This means that when the tiles are exposed to very low temperatures, they are less likely to break. This makes it an ideal flooring option in Canadian homes both indoors and outdoor use.
