Although ceramic tiles may look similar to porcelain tiles, they are quite different in the way that they are manufactured. The main difference between ceramic and porcelain tiles is that a porcelain tile is much denser and less porous; this makes it ideal for use in bathroom and kitchen floors.
Another important difference is that unlike ceramic tiles, with porcelain tiles the colour runs right through the tile and in addition to them being very hard wearing, any wear or chips to the tile will be difficult to see. We stock a vast selection of porcelain tiles here whether you’re looking for tiles for your whole bathroom, walls, floor, splash back or feature wall.
As an approved retailer of Villeroy & Bosch products we are able to show an example of forty different porcelain tiles which are suitable for both floors as well as walls. The illustrations on the web pages show that having a luxury bathroom is now in reach of us all.
One example is the Villeroy & Bosch Bernina porcelain tile which can be used as wall cladding as well as a hard wearing floor tile. Available in five distinctive colours, beige, brown, cream, grey and anthracite, the large size of this tile means that you cover 0.8 square metres for each tile. The quartzite finish to these tiles gives the tiles a very subtle shimmering look, luxury is in a box from Villeroy & Bosch.
Porcelain tiles are long wearing and although the surface is hard to mark, they are making a mark on the bathroom industry.
