Porcelain is great in areas of the home that are often exposed to a lot of water, such as kitchens and bathrooms. It’s easy to clean and it’s difficult to break it. It doesn’t stain or scratch easily, and with proper maintenance, will continue looking brand new for many years to come. The low water absorption rate is the top feature of this material. You can use it in high traffic areas. It is easier to clean it, and you can use it outside. However, it is a human-made product, and it can look more artificial compared to other natural materials. Most porcelain tiles come in 12x24 size, which can be used vertically or horizontally.
