Tile Style: Porcelain Tile Is Taking over the Design World

April 03, 2018

Porcelain tile is one of the biggest home decorating trends of 2018, available in so many colors and styles that your head will spin. And just when you think the array of porcelain flooring is exhausted, MSI’s creative staff comes up with another look that mimics fussier materials found in nature. 

We know you’ll love MSI’s new porcelain tiles. And why not? Porcelain is a durable as it is beautiful. 

Porcelain wood look tile gives you all the warmth and variation as real wood, but it doesn’t warp or scratch like real wood can. Porcelain flooring also is easy to maintain. There’s no annual sealing or frequent chipping. Just damp mop your porcelain flooring once a week, or whenever something spills, and your floor looks like new. Porcelain tile also is affordable, a nice plus for a tile that can resemble everything from marble to exotic woods. Take a look at these MSI, porcelain tile offerings.
