That’s right, you saw the headline, porcelain is not just for tableware, toilets, and decorative objects anymore. Porcelain countertops are growing in demand as the most selected option for countertops today. The first thought that comes to mind when you think of porcelain is a toilet, right? You have to go beyond the concept of its use and think about its durability. Enough about toilets… Let’s discuss the genius transition from other types of countertops to porcelain and why it is the best choice all around.
We have all been inspired by a home improvement show or two. Suffice to say, current trends are all about neutral tones and bringing natural textures into the home. Who doesn’t want a wood-looking butcher block counter or a shiplap wall somewhere in the house? These design concepts and more are possible with the use of porcelain and tile; believe it or not, porcelain is so versatile, you can achieve any design idea you have in mind with its use.
Porcelain is the ultimate game-changer
Porcelain is the most durable countertop materials on the market today and has begun to surpass other surfaces like quartz. Yes, this is true. After comparison research, you will see for yourself that porcelain is the winner, hands down. Porcelain is extremely durable, scratch, stain, and heat-resistant. Not to mention, if you are germaphobic, it is the most hygienic countertop you can have in your home. Porcelain is manufactured at a temperature of 2,500 degrees and mixed with silica and other mineral oxides, giving it kryptonite power against bacteria, fungi, and mold.
And get this…Drumroll please….no sealing or special cleaning products required! Porcelain is heavy-duty enough to withstand UV rays, so there is no fading over time and it’s the perfect choice for that outdoor kitchen or living area you have in mind.
