Farmhouse Shower Tile Elements
Given the heat and moisture created by steam, the type of material used is very important to ensure it can withstand these elements. Porcelain shower tile in farmhouse designs are a great option for these wet conditions. Plus, these tile types typically require minimal maintenance. By “minimal maintenance” we mean you need to simply wipe the tile with a sponge to maintain luster and clean with a soapless detergent.
Then there’s its unparalleled durability of porcelain tile which can withstand wet, hot environments because of its low porosity, unlike natural stone. It’s also color-permanent, abrasion resistant, and unable to be cut, torn, gouged, or punctured. Farmhouse-style porcelain shower tile is an aesthetically and functionally rewarding option that will be a quality, long-lasting enhancement to your home.
