Tough tiles add beauty to any home

By Caroline Wright Posted in: BathInterior

Of all the materials used to make tiles, ceramic porcelain is one of the toughest and most beautiful.

Tricky to manufacture, porcelain actually originated in China about 2,000 years ago. Stronger, harder, and more water-resistant than ordinary ceramics, porcelain tiles are made with finer clays fired at higher temperatures, resulting in durable glazed surfaces that are almost impossible to chip. Porcelain is resistant to most heavy impact stresses, making it perfect for high-traffic areas. It’s so dense that it’s almost impermeable to water penetration, which means it’s stain-proof and easy to maintain.

If you’re looking for porcelain tile at unbeatable prices for your renovation or construction project, Rui Building Supply on Sand Island Access Road is an excellent source for this superb covering. Porcelain tiles are terrific for kitchen floors and counters, bathroom floors and showers, entryways, dining rooms — essentially any area that is used often by your family.

“We have beautiful new porcelain tiles that just arrived in stock, and there are more on the way,” said Jon Xie, manager of Rui Building Supply. “It’s high-quality, solid porcelain tile. We have all kinds of colors! They’re on the lighter side, and they almost look like marble. They’re recommended a lot by outside contractors and owners because of their quality.”

The company has practically everything else you might need for your project. Working on a bathroom? In this crowded but well-organized showroom, bathroom vanities rub elbows with apothecary cabinets, chrome and bronze towel racks and bars and rings, toilet paper holders and soap dispensers. Lovely basins in clean white porcelain and clear blue glass inspire new schemes for d├ęcor.

Instead, maybe you’re working on a kitchen update. You can get exactly what you need here for your dream cooking and dining space, including high-end appliances, elegant lighting, a handsome selection of granite countertops in a couple of dozen different colors, and sturdy cabinets constructed of solid wood — many oak — in a variety of shades. There are also a couple of dozen faucet systems, ranging from modern mini-malist to simple and classic to heavy-duty industrial.

And don’t forget your floors! Whether you prefer lovely vinyl plank flooring or those beautiful porcelain tiles, Rui Building Supply has shades and styles priced for every budget.
