Porcelain Floor Tiles – Versatile and Durable

It is also perfect for wet areas, so you can cover your outdoor patio in porcelain tile and be assured that it will stand up to the elements. From wood-look to stone-look and mosaics to hexagons, porcelain tile can be classic and timeless or trendy and modern. Whichever style you choose, your porcelain floor tiles will stand the test of time.

Our Experts Can Help

We know there’s a lot to consider when selecting your floor tile, but we have a wide selection and all the tools and materials you need for installation and care. Visit your local Tile Shop showroom and let one of our friendly sales associates help you find the right porcelain floor tile for your project. 

Ask the Tile Experts

  • Ceramic and porcelain are both man-made tiles that are produced from firing clay or other materials. The main difference between the two is that porcelain is more resistant to moisture, staining and water due to its blend of fine-grain clays and other minerals that are fired at a much higher temperature than ceramic floor tile.

  • Yes. Because of their strength, some porcelain floor tiles can be used outside the home for patios, gardens or pools. Make sure the tile is approved for exterior use before you begin because exterior tiles need to have special resistance to the weather. We also recommend stopping in at The Tile Shop to speak with an associate about your project as recommendations for tiles and installation will vary by environment and weather.

  • Porcelain is great for any room of the home, especially bathrooms, kitchens, entryways and living areas. Porcelain tile is also heat-resistant, so it can be used around fireplaces and on hearths.

  • With proper installation and care, a porcelain tile floor can last for many years. This is one advantage of tile. While cheap options might be appealing at the time, a quality tile floor will last much longer and be well worth it in the long run.

  • You should always use a non-acidic, antibacterial cleaner for man-made tiles like porcelain. The Tile Shop’s Grout and Tile Neutral Cleaner and Antibacterial Cleaner are safe options for everyday use. One of the best things about porcelain is how easy it is to clean. For light cleaning, you can just use water to clean up.

  • It is not necessary to wax your porcelain floor if it is already glazed. If you do decide you want to add some extra shine to your floor with wax, make sure it is one that is safe for porcelain. Also consider that adding wax to a tile floor requires additional maintenance that the tile on its own does not need.

  • Since grout is a porous material, it should be sealed to help keep it looking new and make it easier to clean. Regular maintenance is key to keeping grout clean and looking nice. The Tile Shop offers a Grout and Tile Neutral Cleaner and Anti-Bacterial Cleaner that are non-acidic, neutral pH and safe to use for regular upkeep. More heavy-duty cleaners are also available.

  • All porcelain floor tile should be grouted.

  • If you’re using an unglazed porcelain flooring tile, it should be sealed. If it is a glazed tile, there is usually no need to seal the tile.

  • There are very specific rules and guidelines to make sure your tile installation is strong enough on your specific type of floor. The different requirements for cement and plywood floors, as well as different joist spacing, mean that the combinations and installation methods vary greatly. Either refer to TCNA guidelines or come into The Tile Shop to find out just how to install a porcelain floor that lasts.

  • Most porcelain floor tiles are glazed meaning they have some sort of finish or coating on them to give them a certain look. Unglazed tiles are just a baked clay surface and should be sealed.

  • Yes! Porcelain floor tile is also great to use on walls and backsplashes. Have fun with your tile combinations—you can coordinate your porcelain wall tile and floor tile, contrast them to really let one shine or use the same tile in both locations. Your tile design is only limited by your imagination and preferences.

  • We never recommend tiling over anything other than a clean, empty floor. If you need assistance finding an installer, just ask at your closest The Tile Shop. We’d be happy to give you a recommendation from our list of trade professionals.

  • Porcelain floor tile is made from heated, refined clay. It is either cut to shape from large sheets or pressed into a mold and then baked to achieve its hard durability.
