We’re the experts on natural stone and engineered stone at Wallstone Stone Countertops, and we thought it would be wise to give you the rundown on this material before it takes over the commercial and residential spheres.

Porcelain is created for both looks and functionality. It has amazing endurance and comes in a myriad of colorations and patterns, meaning that there’s bound to be a slab that fits well with your kitchen or bathroom.

Let’s take a closer look at this man-made material and all that it can offer.

The Durability of Porcelain

With any other material installed, your countertop could be at risk for staining, cracking, or yellowing with time. Not porcelain, though. Porcelain is designed to last not only for generations, but maybe even forever! It’s resistant to heat, detergents, chemicals, and blemishes—even the toughest stains can be removed from its surface through one method or another.

Porcelain is also scratch resistant and abrasion resistant, which makes it perfect for busy families. You won’t have to worry about accidentally damaging your countertop if you place it in a high-traffic area—in fact, you won’t have to worry about your porcelain countertop for any reason.

Even after extensive use and daily cleaning, your porcelain slab will look as gorgeous as the day you had it installed.

A Hygienic Material

Since porcelain is inherently nonporous, you don’t have to worry about germs, bacteria, viruses, dust mites, fungi, or any other type of irritants sneaking into its pores and making a home there.

When your countertop is dirty, the grime can simply be wiped away using any disinfectant product that you choose—but stay away from those that contain highly acidic substances like bleach or vinegar, because they cause wear over time.

The Versatility of Porcelain

Porcelain can be installed in almost any place you can think of. From countertops to office reception areas to bathrooms to outdoor bars, porcelain is the perfect fit. This engineered stone takes no issue with being installed outdoors (unlike quartz countertops, which should never be installed outside), as it doesn’t mind extreme temperatures, humidity, or UV light.

These countertops are also frost resistant with their water absorption rate being only 0.1%. Beyond that, they’re also resistant to fire! With so many benefits piled into one material, you can see how convenient and versatile it is.

Porcelain Design

It’s possible to get porcelain in a polished finish, but if you’d rather it unpolished, that’s doable too.

These countertops are made using digital printing technology that creates realistic visuals that will take your breath away. These designs easily cover today’s hottest trends—from concrete to marble patterns to all sorts of things in between. It’s a great way to stay up on what’s hot without spending an arm and a leg to do so.

A Low-Maintenance Stone

Your porcelain countertop will never need to be sealed, it doesn’t require any special cleaning products, and it involves almost no maintenance to keep it looking shiny and new. Its cleaning routine is as simple as wiping it down with water and a paper towel!
