Design Choices for Porcelain

Choosing a design for your tiles can be intimidating. With so many options to choose from, it can be hard to know which ones will suit your property. There are several choices when it comes to porcelain tiles, each with their own distinct features.


Porcelain TilesFeatures
Glazed TilesGlazed porcelain tiles come in gloss, semi-polished and matte options. Glazing treats the tiles, making them more durable and different designs. Glazed tiles don't require further treatment.
Unglazed TilesUnglazed tiles have a natural finish, and don't usually require sealing or other finishes. They are created by injecting clay into a mould and superheating it under pressure. Each tile has a different pattern.
Digitally Printed TilesModern technology has allowed us to print photographs of natural materials onto porcelain tiles to create finishes that are natural in appearance. Similar to unglazed tiles, these don't need sealing.
Full Bodied TilesA special form of porcelain tile, made by pressing two layers of clay together, so the colour and pattern runs through. They are especially durable and great for high traffic areas, such as lobbies and hallways.


Each kind of tile also comes in a virtually limitless range of colours, shapes and sizes. Each different kind of tile can have dramatic effects on the look and feel of a room, and it's important to know how you want a room to feel before you buy tiles.

Porcelain VS Ceramic

To the new tile-buyer, ceramic and porcelain can seem like the same thing, with the only difference being the price. However, while the two are similar, there are some specific differences that might influence your buying decision. Porcelain tiles are a lot stronger and more durable than ceramic, and water resistant, making them good for use in bathrooms, kitchens and outside. We recommend using ceramic tiles in low traffic areas such as bathrooms, laundries and on walls, as this will help you get the most out of your tiles.
