Furthermore, they’re the perfect choice for anyone wishing to upgrade their space both practically and aesthetically. Here at Country Floors, we are proud to offer an incredible range of porcelain tiles that fit virtually every design and style.
Porcelain tiles barged their way into the American design consciousness in the early 1980’s. At that time, they were a new product in terms of facial dimension sizes, color range, low maintenance, durability, and ease of installation. Since then, all those differentiating characteristics have been meticulously improved upon. As a result, porcelain tiles now occupy a prominent place in any floor-covering discussion.
Now, in the 21st century, a commonplace where you might typically see this product is in retail settings. This includes clothing, grocery, home goods, convenience, DIY stores, and more. Additionally, they’re commonly found in hospitals, offices, hospitality spaces, government buildings, theatres, and transportation hubs of all types. However, porcelain tiles work just as well in residences. Their durability and hardness make them ideal for busy homeowners who want low-maintenance flooring without sacrificing aesthetics.
Architects and designers with worldwide footprints like Gensler, HOK, Arquitectonica, Hersh Bedner, the Rockwell Group, and countless others have specified this type of tile in their projects for decades.

More About Porcelain Tiles
In general, the production of this material begins with a relatively fine powder of clay, feldspar, quartz, and silica. After pressing and drying to remove moisture, the tiles are fired at an incredibly high temperature. This yields a very dense vitreous tile body with water absorption of less than 0.5%.
