Porcelain stone is a beautiful, reliable stone option that has been used for thousands of years. The first uses of porcelain date back nearly 2,000 years ago, during the Tang dynasty of China between the years of 618 and 907 A.D. Today, this elegant stone remains just as popular – if not more so. The use of porcelain in the modern home can range from the smallest dish to an enchanting, eye-catching fireplace enhancing whatever room it’s in.
When it comes to installing porcelain in the home, it offers several advantages. Generally, porcelain is nonporous and very sturdy – harder than quartz – and overall heat resistant. Clients have had great success installing porcelain on prominent statement walls within the home. The stone is also popular as a vanity option for powder rooms, as well as showers.
In Texas, emerging trends accommodate the region’s frequent foundational shifts, which can cause cracking in thinner stones. Our team has found that the use of 2 cm porcelain, instead of the previously used 6mm, has made a significant difference in porcelain installations, making them both stronger and more likely to withstand the state’s geographic challenges.
In fact, at Texas Counter Fitters, porcelain is one of the strongest products we offer.
