Why marble tiles are superior to porcelain

Porcelain and marble are both commonly used in homes throughout the world. These two materials are very different and it’s important to understand the benefits as well as the limitations in order to make an informed decision.

The main difference is that marble is a natural stone while porcelain is manufactured. Because it is manufactured, there are plenty of designs. Some of which even resemble wood! That said, the one thing that porcelain tiles cannot replicate the beauty of marble.

Porcelain is often considered to be easier to care for than marble. Marble requires more specific care once it is installed in order to maintain it’s beautiful appearance. When you choose marble, you will need to confirm the kinds of cleaning solutions that are safe to use. Some types of soaps can cause etching and they can even build up on the surface. Your marble supplier will be able to recommend specific brands and products.

Another advantage of marble tiles is the fact that they are far more durable than porcelain tiles. Natural stone is known for its durability and it is, therefore, also considered to be a financial investment. In short, there is no substitute for natural marble. The strength, beauty and elegance of this stone is what sets it apart from any other type of tile.
