Do you love the look of marble but are questioning whether it is right for your home? Then porcelain tile might be the answer!

Marble has a rich look that appeals to many homeowners and designers. The problem with marble is the fact that it is high maintenance. It also requires regular sealing and is easy to scratch or damage.

What if you could get the luxurious look of marble but with the strength of porcelain tile?

Keep reading to find out how MSI's Regallo Collection gives you the beauty of marble with the easy care realities of porcelain.

What Makes Porcelain Tile Different?

The materials in porcelain tile are similar to ceramic. Manufacturers make porcelain out of clay but they have a greater amount of the mineral feldspar. This mineral helps it to gain properties that increase its strength and durability.

With the added feldspar, porcelain is fired at a much higher temperature than ceramic making them much stronger. Porcelain is also heavier than ceramic and comes in more shapes and styles.

Porcelain has the ability to look like many natural surfaces like wood and marble. This gives every homeowner the ability to add a different look to their designs while keeping the strength of porcelain.

The Benefits of Porcelain Tile

Porcelain tile is harder and denser than ceramic and doesn't break as easily as marble. Marble is easily scratched and requires regular sealing when located in wet areas.

Porcelain is very scratch-resistant and water-resistant naturally. It doesn't require sealing when put in kitchens or bathrooms. The strength of the tile also stands up well to temperature changes. 

Porcelain is created with different strength levels based on the need. When it has a PEI of 4 or 5, it works great as tile flooring at commercial sites with lots of traffic. 

Maintenance is easy with porcelain. It doesn't need any polishing or waxing and cleans easily with a simple wet mop. Marble is a natural stone and needs much more maintenance and care.

Marble isn't as strong as porcelain and damages easily. This is why many homeowners are choosing to have the look of marble in porcelain. MSI's Regallo Collection showcases this combination.
