Advantages of Choosing Porcelain Tile in Your New Denver Home Construction


June 12, 2019

Whether you’re building a new home in the Aurora, Littleton or Denver area or simply remodeling your existing home, the titling and stoneworks pros here at Natural Stone Sales will be here to help you make the best decision when it comes to choosing a material for your floors, countertops, or bathroom. Porcelain has long been a favorite of our residential clients for a variety of reasons. Whether you’re installing floors, bathroom tile, or new fixtures, there are a variety of ways that porcelain can give you the most bang for your buck —while looking great too. 

While you might associate porcelain with fine china, the opposite is true when it comes to porcelain tile. In fact, porcelain is both harder and denser than many other ceramic tile products. Porcelain is dense, impervious, fine-grained, and smooth —making it an ideal material for a variety of in-home areas, from bathrooms to hallways. 

In addition, porcelain tiles are frost-resistant, and often frost-proof —and even strong enough to be utilized in such applications as ambient-heat flooring. Offered in a wide range of colors and textures, the design options for porcelain are virtually endless. In fact, it could be said with confidence that porcelain offers unmatched design versatility in the entire decorative stone and tile industry. Porcelain tiles can mimic natural stone varieties, such as granite and limestone. Newer designs can evoke leather, fabric, even animal prints.

Due to its incredibly low water absorption rate, porcelain stains less and is easier to clean that nearly every other tiling option, whether you’re utilizing it for flooring or bathroom surrounds. The material’s resistance to harsher cleaning agents, scratches, stains, fading, heavy loads, and fire make it ideal for flooring. With no polishing, waxing, or sealing required, porcelain tile flooring is easy to maintain with a damp mop.
