Why Homeowners Love Porcelain

Porcelain is the best tile material. This likely doesn’t come as a surprise, given its many strengths. That said, it's amazing to note the number of benefits it offers to homeowners.

Whether you need a new kitchen tile backsplash in Miami, or you’re looking to refloor an entire home, porcelain is likely a great option. Today, we want to discuss just a few of the reasons why we recommend it to so many people who visit our stores.

Why Porcelain is the Right Choice 


In today’s health-conscious age, it’s important to think about the ways that your floors and walls can impact your health.  

Porcelain is hypoallergenic, made without VOCs, PVC, formaldehyde, or plastic. This means you won’t have to worry about it upsetting your respiratory system. We have plenty of antimicrobial porcelain options, which prevent mold, fungi, and more from growing on the tile. 


Along with sanitation, you also want to make sure that the tile you choose can withstand the day-to-day realities of living. 

Luckily, porcelain is a dense material, resistant to chips, cracks, and scratches. This means it won’t break just because you drop something on it.  


For many people, a home is a respite from the outside world. You want to find something that fits your personal aesthetic style. 

Regardless of the design you need, you can use porcelain. We can print any design on the glaze, and the glaze is then applied to the tile. In fact, this method even allows us to make porcelain look like different kinds of materials. 


The world is growing increasingly eco-conscious, and many homeowners place a high priority on using eco-friendly materials. Porcelain’s longevity is a major advantage here. Its longer lifecycle results in less waste overall. 

It’s also recyclable. Even if it needs to be disposed of, it doesn’t decompose or pollute the way that other materials do. 

What Tile Do We Recommend? 

We’re proud to work with the best suppliers today. This allows us to offer high-quality tile suitable for a wide variety of projects. 

Atlas Plan, for instance, offers large-size slabs, which add a stunning, Old Word aesthetic to any project. Laticrete, on the other hand, is especially focused on technical innovation, offering products like their SPECTRALOCK® line. 

If you’re unsure which tile would be best for the project, we recommend scheduling a consultation at one of our stores. This allows you to see and feel the tile, as well as giving you the chance to talk to a tile expert.
