Why choose porcelain tiles?

Beautiful, elegant and versatile. Porcelain tiles are the perfect choice for any home renovation project. They add value to your property, offer a wide range of design styles and colours, can be installed on nearly any surface including concrete floors or walls, and require less maintenance than other options like hardwood flooring or carpet. With so many benefits - it's easy to see why porcelain tiles are one of the most popular choices!

#1: Resistant to wear and tear

Porcelain tiles can withstand the majority of heavy impact stresses and are ideal for residential or commercial purposes. The material should have a PEI rating of at least 5 to be considered robust enough, making it perfect for most environments in both the home or office space.

#2: Liquid resistant

Porcelain tiles are some of the most impervious flooring surfaces on earth, capable of preventing water penetration to a degree unmatched by any other material. When melted glass is poured over porcelain tile and allowed to harden completely, it creates an impregnable barrier that even the toughest liquids have difficulty penetrating.

#3: Stain resistant

It's common for people to spill their beverage on the carpet, leaving it stained permanently. But what many don't realise is that stone surfaces like natural marble and granite are also susceptible to stains because they can be porous if not sealed regularly from liquids such as wine or water. The good news? Porcelain tiles are virtually impenetrable against these substances - so you know your floor will never let even the smallest of dribbles through!

#4: Low maintenance

The porcelain tile is a great choice for those who want their flooring to be clean and shiny without having to do much work. The surface of the material won't absorb stains, so spills can easily be wiped away with a damp cloth. To keep it looking as good as new all you have to do is rinse them off in hot water and then use some gentle detergent! The necessary repairs are not that expensive either!

#5: Maintainable in high traffic areas

Porcelain floor tile is the best choice for high-traffic areas because it will outperform other tiles in both long-term appearance and durability. Some other floors might wear down quickly or become scuffed, but porcelain looks new even after a lot of use.

#6: Available in Many Styles

The options for tile are almost endless! You can get porcelain tiles that look like granite, slate or marble. The best part is you don't have to choose one of these materials because the porcelain does it all while still looking great and costing less than any other material on the market today. At Hyperion Tiles, we offer a range of porcelain tiles from leading brands such as Ca' Pietra, Minoli and the National Trust.

#7: Durable flooring option

Porcelain tiles are the perfect flooring option for bathrooms, kitchens, patios and even swimming pools. They’re tough enough to resist rot or swelling from exposure to moisture in different environments - whether it's a bathroom with high humidity levels due to showers or humidifiers or an outdoor area exposed to rainwater. This means they can be used as wall covers too!

#8: Fireproof

Porcelain is one of the strongest materials for containing the fire. Extreme temperatures will not heat porcelain, and in case a fire breaks out due to some unforeseen circumstance you can rest assured that your possessions are safe because they won't burn or melt.

#9: Moisture resistant

The high porcelain density makes it less likely to absorb moisture. The material can also withstand freezing temperatures, which means you could use them outdoors for a seamless look!

#10: Porcelain tiles are hygienic

Porcelain tiles are a great choice for indoor and outdoor use because they provide an easy-to-clean, hygienic surface that is durable.
