Porcelain is a popular choice of tile for bathrooms given its easy to clean and hard wearing properties. Porcelain tiles that have been coated in a non-porous glaze are classed as glazed porcelain and this glaze provides protection against staining and the absorption of fluids. Here at CTD Tiles we have a large selection of glazed porcelain bathroom tiles on offer, ranging from our best selling Cuban collection with its intricate geometric patterns, through to our popular natural stone inspired Nature and Pietra Pienza ranges and on-trend wood look glazed porcelain tile collections Aspenwood and Treverkever to name a few. With so much choice, feel free to use the filters to narrow your search and help you find your ideal glazed porcelain bathroom tile.
Glazed porcelain tiles have a very high resistance to water, making them the perfect choice for floors and walls that are subject to lots of moisture such as bathrooms and wetroom floors and walls, if you are looking to use any tiles on a wetroom floor we would always recommend you being mindful of slip resistance and plan this in where necessary.
Glazed porcelain tiles are more hard wearing than most bathroom flooring options and are less likely to scratch, stain or break. Glazed porcelain tiles offer long-term durability and are a popular choice of bathroom flooring. When choosing a floor tile, check its PEI rating which is a measurement of the tile’s resistance to abrasion – the higher the PEI rating, the harder and more durable the tile’s surface is. Also look at the floor tile’s R rating which indicates its slip resistance – the higher the R rating, the more slip resistance the tile will offer. We recommend using glazed porcelain mosaic floor tiles on wetroom floors due to their anti slip properties.
Glazed porcelain tiles do not require sealing and can be easily cleaned by firstly vacuuming any dust or loose dirt, then cleaning with a hot, water dampened mop and mild cleaning solution. Rinse with clean water and use a soft cloth to dry.
There are many advantages of using glazed porcelain tiles in bathrooms including a high water resistance, high stain resistance, resistance to abrasion, a huge choice of design, colour and texture and the fact they’re suitable for both walls and floors. Being so tough, porcelain is harder to work with and therefore may require some specialist tools or perhaps even a tiling professional however the end result is a durable bathroom wall and floor surface that not only looks great but will stand the test of time.
