Using Porcelain Tile in a Shower
By: Danny Lipford
I’m adding a tiled shower to our bathroom. Would porcelain tile be a good choice for that application? -Joe
Porcelain tile would be a great choice for a shower, since they’re made from a finer clay and fired at higher temperatures than standard ceramic tile. This makes porcelain tile harder, more durable, and less porous than regular ceramic tile. That last quality is important in a shower, since it means that porcelain tile will absorb less water than other types of ceramic tile.
Good luck with your project,
