Choosing Tile: Natural Stone Versus Porcelain

You’re renovating your bathroom – and one of your decisions will be what materials you will use for your bathroom floor. TNT has a wide selection of natural stone as well as porcelain for you to select from in our showrooms serving Ottawa, West Ottawa, Carp, Kanata, Stittsville, West Carleton, Dunrobin, and Arnprior.

Specifically, let’s take a look at considerations when choosing between natural stone and ceramic tile.

  • The Look – Porcelain tile will be consistent and uniform while each tile of natural stone will be different.
  • The Work – Natural stone tile flooring for your Ottawa bathroom. You’ll need to seal your natural stone floor after installation and stone floors need to be professionally deep-cleaned on a regular basis.
  • The Absorbancy – natural stone will absorb moisture and this is also easier stained if not regularly sealed and protected.

Stop by TNT and we’ll help you select the right tile for your Ottawa bathroom.
