Cement Look Porcelain for Upscale Urban Industrial Design

Posted by Daltile Team on Aug 10, 2017 2:02:00 PM

Love the industrial loft look? It’s a sophisticated choice for offices, restaurants, boutique hotels, and even a unique home or apartment. Real-deal cement floors, exposed brick, metal walls, wood pillars, and the like can be a bear to take care of and keep looking pristine. While a bit of patina finishes the industrial look, you wouldn’t want to go overboard.

That’s why cement-look porcelain tile is the right choice to get easy care plus keep the urban look you want.

Benefits of Porcelain

  • Low porosity, especially compared to cement. This means that you won’t have to deal with the moisture issues the come with cement.
  • Colors! Cement look porcelain comes in many great neutral colors that don’t change over time. No dyes, no sealers, no mess.
  • Graphic technologies at Daltile offer you the rusty, brushed, cracked, or discolored sensation of aged cement without actually having any of the problems that come with those signature looks.
  • Easy cleanability that comes with porcelain makes it a must for commercial spaces that need constant and thorough cleaning.
