Easy Clean Marble Look Porcelain Tile – Updated! Affordable & Quality

When you’re looking for a bathroom tile or even a kitchen tile, there are certain things that you automatically find yourself searching for, such as marble look porcelain tiles. Because you will want your tiles to have characteristics that will benefit the situation installed. For example, many people look for easy porcelain tiles to clean.

Our design team has quite a few options in this regard, and they have put together a selection of samples for us to discuss. We think that any of these would be excellent choices for a kitchen or bathroom, so let’s get started.

Polished Porcelain Tiles

Polished porcelain tiles effectively create a bright and enjoyable space, especially in the kitchen. We have a few different examples of polished porcelain that we figure you’d want to discover.

1- Carrara Marble Look Porcelain Tile

We would like to look at the first example, the Carrara Porcelain Tile. There is a lot to appreciate when it comes to a tile like this. It has a clean, white background, the cracked effect is stunning, and it is polished to prevent it from becoming chipped and damaged. This particular tile would look great in a bathroom, whether you used it as just a marble looking porcelain shower or employed it for something like a backsplash tile.

2- Venato Polished Marble Look Porcelain Tile For Floors

Another good example is this Venato Polished Porcelain Tile. The tile is more subdued than the other one, with no visible crack effect but more delicate lines across the tile. However, it does work just as well, as it still has the elegant, polished appearance you want from a porcelain tile. At this point, it would be just as effective as a floor tile or a wall tile so that you could experiment.

9 Most Wondered FAQs about Porcelain Tiles

1- What tile finish is easiest to clean? 

An easy-to-clean tile finish will have a low absorption to prevent penetrating stains, such as uric acid, from causing serious cleaning problems. That same tile will also have a relatively smooth finish to prevent the typical elements in the bath environment from adhering to the face of the material. The goal is to select a tile that inhibits penetration and minimizes adhesion. We can help you make the selection.

2- Are matte porcelain tiles hard to clean? 

Matte porcelain tiles are not hard to clean. In fact, it is relatively easy. Their porcelain body has a very low water absorption rate, so aggressive staining elements don’t penetrate. The matte finish minimizes the things that get “caught” on the face and “stick” or adhere. Therefore, the end user can focus on a regular, but minimal, maintenance program built around quick, frequent cleanings.

3- Is matte or glossy tile easier to clean?

A case can be made that they are equally easy to clean, given the presence of certain technical characteristics. For example, the typical porcelain tile is impervious to water absorption, which makes them highly resistant to staining. This means that the end user can, in most cases, simply wipe clean both finishes as part of their basic maintenance plan.

4- What type of tile is easiest to keep clean?

To a degree, we have discussed this in other areas of these FAQs, but the question is well worth revisiting. Typically, two situations cause the most difficult cleaning problems. First, when a stain penetrates into the body of the tile. Second, when the surface of the tile catches dirt that then sticks to it. A tile like porcelain, that does not allow penetration into the body, with a finish that is not overly rough, will be relatively easy to clean.

5- What color tile is easiest to keep clean?

The question is really what colors of tile SHOW dirt the most. A black tile may visually display a lot of dirt but might actually be less dirty than a multi-color tile that is simply doing a better job of hiding the dirt. There is also the very subjective question of what is filthy to one pair of eyes is acceptable to another pair. Generally speaking, shaded, light colors will be easier to clean than stark dark values. However, there is no hard and fast rule.

6- What is the easiest shower tile to clean?

A tile that has a low water absorption will resist aggressive, penetrating stains. A tile surface that is matte, polished, or glossy will minimize the amount of dirt and grime that adheres to the face. This easy rule of thumb will greatly aid in overall cleaning and holds true for both floors and walls in the shower area. Also understand that minimizing grout, particularly in ceramic tile installations, will reduce maintenance.

7- What floor tiles are easy to clean?

As discussed previously, a tile with low water absorption will fight penetrating stains. A larger tile with no, or minimal, grout joints will require less maintenance. The less grout the better, since it can be problematic at times. Matte and polished flooring does not allow as many things to adhere, lowering cleaning efforts. Please be mindful that what is easiest to clean might also be slippery. We can help you choose wisely.

8- What is the easiest tile to take care of?

The easiest tile to take care of is one that does not display stains and does not absorb stains. A low water absorption tile, such as porcelain, is considered to be impervious. That means you never have to worry about something like red wine leaving a permanent mark. If that same tile has a matte or polished finish, then dirt and grime are less likely to adhere to the face and therefore easier to maintain.

9- What is the lowest maintenance flooring?

When considering the general maintenance of an overall floor, a larger unit, matte-finish porcelain tile would be a very wise choice. The porcelain body is impervious, so the tiles don’t absorb stain. The matte-finish minimizes what will adhere, which aids cleanability. A larger unit of tile means a piece greater than twelve inches which eliminates problems with cleaning the joints between tiles.
