Three Facts About Porcelain
Porcelain is used everywhere from showers and outdoor patios to kitchen countertops. It has so many uses that it’s hard to nail down the facts. A lot of items that can be used anywhere have the assumption that they are lesser products and don’t match up to more place-specific types of material, but with porcelain that’s not the case at all! Here are the most important facts about porcelain that you need to know:
Lightweight – Porcelain is one of the most lightweight types of materials that can be used for countertops. It is so lightweight that it can be produced in super thin slabs, as small as 5 mm per slab! It is the perfect material to install on top of an existing countertop, and it is so easy to move that it can be installed by yourself!
Wide range of patterns and colors – Porcelain is a man-made product and therefore can be manipulated in many different fantastic ways. During the porcelain-making process, different pigments can be added to give you the perfect look for your porcelain countertop. It will even have the feel and look of natural stone!
Low maintenance – Unlike granite and quartz countertops, porcelain requires little to no maintenance. A little soap and water are all you need to keep your porcelain countertop in great shape. It even shares most of the scratch and heat resistance of granite and Quartz.
