Breaking Down Tile Options: Natural Stone or Porcelain? [INFOGRAPHIC]

Last updated 1 year ago

When you’re choosing flooring and countertop surfaces for your home, you have several choices, including natural stone and porcelain tile. Each has its own pros and cons. Natural stone is striking and each piece is completely unique, but it can be pricey. Porcelain can be made to mimic stone and is far less expensive, but doesn’t offer the natural distinctiveness of stone. For many homeowners, the right decision can be to use a combination of the two materials for different areas of the home. Porcelain tile is good for high-traffic areas, while natural stone adds upscale beauty to more gently-used rooms. Find out more about the differences between these two materials in this infographic from Tile Fantastic. Please consider sharing this information with your family and friends.
