If you’re planning to renovate a room of your house, which suffers from high levels of traffic – think the entrance hall, landings and kitchens – you’ll want to pick a flooring that stands the test of time. Porcelain tile is the perfect choice. Made from a dense natural clay, these tiles are manufactured so that they have a low water content and a higher sand content than the ceramic tile, making it more durable. It can dramatically alter the look of a room as, not only is there a virtually endless range of colors available but you can also choose a variety of patterned tiles to add a dash of interest to your floors.
You may wish to pick an intricate, delicate pattern for your kitchen if you are aiming for a certain style such as an English country kitchen, or you may choose bold yet dark colors to create an impact for visitors in your entrance hall. Porcelain tiles come in a range of shapes and sizes too – you’re not limited to plain squares. Maybe a hexagonal design may help the look of your room, or large, rectangular pieces can be used to create a vision of grandeur without you having to break the bank!
