Benefits of Thin Tiles Compared to Thick Tiles
Thin tiles, made of porcelain, have entered the market and have turned heads. Who wouldn’t wonder at this thinly manufactured wonder? Porcelain tiles have been favored by many because of its durability, beauty, and stain-resistance, plus the affordability to boot. But how can thin tiles compare to the regular ones? And are there any benefits to them being used for floors or walls?

For one, thin tiles are easier to handle compared to the thicker predecessors. Since they are a fraction of the thickness, making them lightweight, they are easier to cut and install on walls and floors at home. But despite being lighter in weight, it’s strength is almost the same as those of the thicker side.

Thin tiles also come in a large format so coverage is easier too. This also makes it possible to create a seamless appearance on the floor and walls, making it look as if homeowners are using one giant slab of tile to cover the surface. This makes installation quicker as less tiles are needed to be installed. And with the innovation of printing technology, you can get it in almost any design anyone would desire to have.

They are also very resistant to bacteria, moisture, stains, heat, and even scratches. This makes maintenance easy, perfect for those areas that require constant cleaning and of the utmost hygiene. This makes them versatile enough to be used as splashbacks, countertops, walls, and even floors in and around the house regardless of the foot traffic.

With today’s engineering ingenuity, materials as big as fists are now fitted on the top of a needle. Phones that were as big as heads are now sized at the palm of our hands. Tiles, too, have benefited from this movement of making them thinner than they were first imagined.
