For busy, heavily trafficked floors, the ideal choice is porcelain tile. It's a type of ceramic made of a nonporous clay called Kaolin, with sand and glass, and is fired at higher temperatures. This results in a heavier, more dense material, able to withstand the heaviest wear and most severe weather conditions.
It's just as beautiful as it is hard-wearing, exceptionally when polished, one of our specialties. Because of the style, many also use it on indoor walls, and tub/shower surrounds. Available in a wide assortment of colors and designs, this can be made to look like anything, including fabric, leather, wood, and stone. It's also a large format tile, which is currently a trend and has through-body color, meaning the hue goes all the way through the bisque.
