Porcelain tile is durable, making it an excellent choice for high traffic areas. Porcelain will not break like other materials and is also resistant to staining because it is nonporous. Porcelain floors require no specialized cleaning supplies and are very low maintenance.

There are many porcelain tile options available to suit any home’s design. There are also porcelain tiles available that look like marble, slate, wood, or limestone to give a more expensive look with the durability and low price point of porcelain.
