Don’t bang your head against a brick wall
Refurbishing your floors can be tricky, and deciding on the correct floor tile quite challenging.
The ideal floor tile should meet the required performance criteria – safety and comfort, resistance to staining, and ease of maintenance. However, wear resistance is the most important factor, and the amount of foot traffic should be taken into consideration before making the final decision. Porcelain and ceramic tiles are both part of the later category of tiles called ceramics. This is a category that includes products made from natural clays hardened by heat and pressure. The terms porcelain and ceramics are often used interchangeably, therefore, not all consumers know how to differentiate between the two.
