Porcelain tiles are actually composed of a ceramic material that has undergone a unique process of manufacture. Porcelain tiles are heated to high temperatures during manufacture to give them a unique set of properties that include translucency, strength, low permeability, and high resistance to electricity, chemicals and extremes of temperature. All these properties help to make porcelain tiles not only an attractive option, but also ideally suited for tiling walls and floors.
Also referred to as 'china', porcelain itself has an exquisite quality and is frequently used in interior decoration. Porcelain tiles are available in a wide range of eye-catching and glamorous styles and finishes including matt, satin, glass, gloss, rustic and textured. In addition to this, porcelain tiles are available in many different colours to suit any aesthetic. Choose from natural, earthy colours such as terracotta and beige, or bring the wow factor home with bright pinks, reds or oranges. Topps Tiles is also proud to stock the prestigious V&A Victorian tiles range, inspired by the collections of the Victoria & Albert Museum in London. The V&A range blends ornate elegance with vintage charm.
If you're looking for something a bit different, why not mix and match porcelain tiles to create a unique chequered effect or even a wall feature. Porcelain tiles are also available in mosaic ranges, which look particularly stunning when used in bathrooms, wetrooms and swimming pools.
