Floor models and types

There are numerous models and types of floors on the market, the most common are:

Ceramic parts

As its name implies, ceramic pieces are made of ceramic material and have various types of finishes, colors, and designs. They are recommended for various areas of the house, but there is the right type for each installation location. The ceramic pieces have different types of finishes, the most common are:

  • Glossy
  • Satin
  • Print

Porcelain tiles

It is also a type of ceramic made with high temperature pressing technology. This manufacturing process results in a piece with high strength and low porosity, i.e. low absorption and water. They are used in all environments of the house, but each type of finish has its characteristics.

Polished porcelain

These porcelain tiles are polished and have a protective layer, which facilitates their cleaning and makes the surface very smooth and shiny. They are suitable for dry environments, as they are very slippery when wet, such as rooms, corridors, and bedrooms.

Enameled porcelain

This type of porcelain tile receives a protective enamel layer, hence the name enamel. This layer allows the piece to have prints with different designs. It can be used in a humid and dry environment. When buying this type of porcelain tile it is very important to pay attention to the enamel resistance (PEI).

Saturate porcelain

Saturate porcelain has a slightly abrasive surface. This is why it is a great choice for wet areas such as bathrooms, decks, garages, pool areas, and saunas. When cleaning, care should be taken to use the products indicated by the manufacturer.

Natural porcelain

They are porcelain tiles that do not have a special finish on their surface, that is, they are neither polished nor enameled. It has a matte, opaque surface finish, which makes it sturdier and less slippery. Suitable for outdoor residential and commercial environments.


The stones are available in various sizes and colors. Can be used indoors and outdoors. Care should be taken to avoid using porous stones in damp environments. When well combined, the stones guarantee high durability in the environments.

Cement floors

They are made of high-performance concrete, have high mechanical strength and durability. Widely used outdoors with non-slip and thermic models (which do not heat up in the sun). Parts for outdoor use require waterproofing to reduce water and fat absorption and thus facilitate cleaning. 

Draining floors

Draining tread is a material usually made of concrete or resin plus natural fibers and can even be made from recycled tires. It has an easy and environmentally friendly installation. This type of floor allows rainwater to drain to the ground, avoiding flood problems and contributing to the environment. It can be produced in various colors and is suitable for garden areas, pool borders, sidewalks, garage access.
