Porcelain Tile:In order to carry the name “porcelain”, tiles must have a water absorption rate of less than 1%. This makes them highly water resistant, but remember to find the right type of grout, and exposed grout between the tiles should be sealed. Porcelain is easy to clean with a mop or rag, and can last decades if properly cared for. Tile has traditionally been more expensive than other waterproof alternatives, but manufacturers like Beckham Brothers have been able to offer value-priced full bodied porcelain tile with new digital-printing technologies.
