Design Ideas: The Versatility of Porcelain Tile

At Del Conca USA, we believe that a product's “design versatility” speaks to its ability to work in a variety of different applications and conditions while also catering to diverse design aesthetics that speak to unique tastes.
While it may not sound like an easy feat, the porcelain tile family of surface options truly are versatile and this extends to every aspect of your design, including tile size, style and application. Design versatility allows for a consistent aesthetic throughout a space, the ability to use a product in multiple ways, and the understanding of a product’s suitability in different contexts. In the image above, for example, different porcelain tile surfaces are used on the floor and walls, and even in the shower and as a backsplash, while still maintaining a cohesive look. This modern and inspiring bathroom space was created with the products from our Woodchic, Kensington and Essential collections.

Various Size Offerings

We often think of the porcelain tile family of surfaces as standard sized squares, but one look at our product offerings prove just how inaccurate this is, with sizes ranging from small mosaics to larger format tiles. Mosaics typically involve tiles with a surface area of less than nine square inches and may be mounted in sheets for easier installation. You may find mosaics in areas such as showers, pools and backsplashes.  On the other end of the spectrum, large format tiles are used to reduce the number of grout joints in an installation, creating a sleek, minimalist look that’s perfect for everything from floors and outdoor pavers to walls.

Options to Suit all Aesthetics

Advances in manufacturing allow almost any color, pattern, and even texture to be baked right into porcelain tile, meaning that you can achieve the look of many different materials while also enjoying the low-maintenance benefits of the porcelain tile family. Wood, natural stone, concrete, terrazzo, terracotta and metal looks are all possible without the concern of damage from water, scratches, or fading from the sun.
