So what makes vitrified tiles so special?
Vitrified tiles are a modern-day version of ceramic tiles. Like ceramic tiles, they are made from clay – but also include elements like quartz, silica and feldspar (also found in granite). These elements, when baked at high temperatures, melt and fuse into a hard, glass type product. This makes the tiles strong, durable and highly resistant to water – as well as extremely versatile in terms of shape, design and texture.
Vitrified tiles are the most popular alternative to natural flooring products. They are gradually taking over ceramic tiles, made from earthen clay, and do not contain elements like quartz, silica and feldspar. As a result, ceramic tiles are not as strong, durable or water resistant as vitrified tiles. To overcome this, ceramic tiles now contain extra glazing for added protection and elegance. Being cheaper than vitrified tiles, they are a great and a highly popular choice for kitchens, bathrooms and verandas.
The seven things that make vitrified tiles such a fabulous flooring option for your home are:
You can get vitrified tiles in both glossy and matt finish. The colour and texture of vitrified tiles can highlight or subdue the spatial qualities, thereby allowing you to balance the lighting and aesthetics of your room to your taste.
You can, for example, enhance or underplay natural or electric lighting, depending on the ambience you want in your room – light glossy colours to enhance brightness and darker matts to underplay it. And the choices are endless!
