Inspired By Nature: The Bernini Porcelain Tile Collection

June 12, 2022


Do you want the look of natural stone but are worried about its ability to stand up to the hectic schedule of life? Homeowners and business owners love how natural stones look and are finding a better alternative with porcelain tile.

Porcelain is one of the strongest tiles you can buy. It is very easy to take care of and can give you many creative looks.

Keep reading to find out the benefits of porcelain and how MSI has captured the natural look in its Bernini Porcelain Tile Collection. 

Porcelain vs. Ceramic Tile

Porcelain and ceramic tiles are made from many of the same materials. The difference is the proportions used and the firing process. Firing porcelain happens at a temperature of over 800 degrees!

This gives the porcelain a timeless beauty and some advantages over ceramic. 


Porcelain has a natural resistance to water. It doesn't have to be sealed like other materials because it resists moisture naturally. This makes porcelain a great material to use in kitchens and bathrooms.


Porcelain contains more of the mineral feldspar and less clay than ceramic. This gives it more strength and causes it to resist stains and scratches. Porcelain handles high traffic areas with ease because of its strength. 

Easy Maintenance

Porcelain is very easy to care for and only needs a damp mop or sponge to clean it. You won't have to worry about stains because of the density of porcelain. It also inhibits the growth of bacteria and mold.


Porcelain gives the manufacturer the ability to create many different looks with it. Porcelain can look like wood, marble, or natural stone. This gives options to homeowners who want a different look with the benefits of porcelain.

The Bernini Porcelain Tile Collection

If you love the stone look but want the benefits of porcelain there is a great option for you. MSI's Bernini Porcelain Tile Collection gives you a strong natural look without the headaches of real stone. 


The premium surfaces of the Bernini Collection give you many different options for your stone looks. You can choose a shiny polished look or go with a radiant matte finish.

Both finishes will last because of porcelain's natural strength and durability no matter what room you put it in.


Artistic Touches

Some of the sizes in the Bernini Collection offer a decorative mosaic or bullnose look. This can add a flair that causes your tiles to stand out and get noticed throughout your home. 

Size Options

The entire Bernini Porcelain Tile Collection comes in sizes that help you achieve the looks you are after, including large format 12 x 24 tiles and smaller 2 x 4 mosaic options.

Each of the tiles is 3/8" thick and has the strength to stand up to indoor and outdoor uses. 

Bernini Bianco Porcelain Tile


The Bernini Bianco Collection creates a beautiful tile with its blend of warm grays nestled among white and cream highlights. The intricate mix of colors offers you a wide array of color options for your rooms.

These tiles have a timeless essence that will go with any wall color changes you make in the future. With the strength of porcelain, you can use them in any room of the house. 

As you can see in the picture, the Bianco tiles open up the kitchen and shimmer with the outdoor light. These tile patterns work well in the kitchen because they don’t show every little thing that drops to the floor. 

The multiple size options give you the ability to use them as floors, shower enclosures, accent walls, countertops, and more! They can also stand up to commercial uses where high traffic is an issue. 

Bernini Camo Porcelain Tile


The bold look of the Bernini Camo Porcelain Tile comes together with exquisite greiges highlighted by beige and cream patterns. This allows you to have some darkness in the room that doesn't overwhelm your tile.

As you can see in the picture, the dark cabinets blend with the floor without overwhelming it. The floor has enough light in the tiles to help the cabinets stand out. 

You can also see how the glass backsplash has a mixture of grey and beige that connects with the colors on the floor. 

The Camo Collection allows you to stay trendy in your color and style selections without having to change your tiles. Whether in bright bathrooms or kitchens with dark cabinets, the Camo collection highlights the look.  

Bernini Carbone Porcelain Tile


The dramatic natural stone look and feel are embodied through the Bernini Carbone Porcelain Tile Collection. The neutral grey shades stand out on the mixture of light creams and beiges.

This keeps the tile from being too dark but allows it to have a stronger dramatic flair. The picture reveals how the floor can separate itself from the staircase and the furniture without clashing.

This ability means the Carbone collection would make a great floor or accent wall in your main room. Off course, with the water-resistance of tile, your bathrooms and kitchens would stand out with this tile. 

The stain resistance of porcelain would allow you to use this tile as a countertop and not fear a glass of wine spilling on it. 

The Natural and the Powerful

The natural look of stone and the powerful qualities of porcelain are combined in The Bernini Porcelain Tile Collection. These deeply colorful tiles can fit most color schemes and give you timeless beauty for years to come.
