What to look for when buying porcelain tiles in Perth

Porcelain tiles are available in a myriad of sizes, types and styles. You’ll need to know a little bit about them to assist you in the buying process.

Different types of porcelain tiles are suitable for different uses.

Indoor porcelain tiles are usually large-sized tiles and they are incredibly tough and durable. These tiles are ideal for use in high foot traffic areas and they are available in many colours and styles.

Bathroom porcelain tiles are water-resistant tiles that are usually smaller in size than indoor porcelain tiles. They are perfect for use as wall tiles in shower spaces and around tubs and sinks. Larger tiles are more suitable for bathroom flooring. You can choose from many styles and colours here as well.

Kitchen porcelain tiles are very practical and can replicate the look of a range of other materials. From wood-look tiles to granite-look tiles, you’ll find every type of tile design and style. Kitchen porcelain tiles are suitable for flooring and also for splashbacks.

Outdoor porcelain tiles are suitable for patios, carports and around pools. These water-resistant tiles are available in any shape, style, size and design that you want.

Do note that porcelain tiles come in glazed and unglazed varieties. Glazed varieties are recommended for indoor use as they offer a lustrous and shiny finish. On the other hand, unglazed tiles are slip-resistant and weather-resistant and are more suitable for outdoor use.
