I started to hear talk and see in decoration and various websites on the use of porcelain tile not only for floors and walls in Kitchens and bathrooms, but throughout the house and I think it’s worth thinking about this coating at reform or construction ,saw? So, let’s see where the porcelain tile is being beautifully worn around?

But pay attention with the installation: large formats allow smaller number of cutouts and joints; porcelain tiles thinner they facilitate because they are lighter; the high shine are, as always, more susceptible to blemishes (and there is products which you can pass to reduce this possibility) and, IMPORTANTÍSSIMO: professionals must have experience with this type of use.

THE stand can be made on a masonry base or metal frame. Ah, one difference is that you can (like in the video below) mold the tub also in porcelanato.Para the kitchen and bathroom cleaning That’s really good! It becomes “more” possible until the dream of a wood bench (that is to say, imitating super good wood and with much less expense with the purchase and maintenance) and facilitates the creation of niches coated in the same material.
