A popular use for Mansion is featuring on a bathroom floor. An environment where hardwood could not normally be used to the spaces’ high moisture content, Mansion thrives due to porcelains’ low water absorption levels, resulting in no warping, cracking, or expanding due to water.
The high durability of this wood look porcelain tile is made to withstand everything from the moisture of melted snow to the abrasion of sand from the beach, making this the ultimate design choice to face the elements of the high traffic area of a mudroom or foyer.
The versatility and longevity of porcelain married with the natural beauty of wood lend to the perfect tile for the wear and tear that a kitchen floor experiences. Another plus? Use wood-look porcelain flooring throughout the kitchen into a dining area or living room to achieve consistent flooring in an open concept home.
Because of its high resistance to water, Mansion wood-look porcelain makes for an easy choice when installing on the floor of a pool house. Porcelain tile is less susceptible to water damage and is also a material that is typically safe to walk on when wet – a characteristic that is vital in this environment.
Enjoy the look of wood in a bustling restaurant or a crowded bar with Mansion wood-look porcelain. Because of its extreme density, porcelain is resistant to the heavy stresses that come with high-traffic commercial environments such as scratches and staining.
Along with its high durability, Mansion is an ease to clean, and can be swept or mopped with just water, but also withstand harsh cleaning chemicals.
