Porcelain Tile

Next to wood, stone or ceramic tiling is one of the most popular natural flooring materials.


While not quite as durable, ceramic tiling has most of the advantages of stone while boasting an incredible variety of colours and appearances. Porcelain is a special variety of ceramic tiles designed for high-moisture areas. Porcelain is fired at a higher temperature, making it stronger, harder, and more moisture-resistant than ceramic tiling. Porcelain can also be obtained with special finishes that allow it to mimic other products, including stone, cork, and wood.


Since opening our doors in 2005, Floors Depot has been proud to be the premier flooring services and products provider in the Greater Vancouver Area. Let our almost two decades’ of experience work for you so that you can focus on the next step of your renovation with peace of mind. Talk with us and start the process today.


Porcelain Tile Flooring

Porcelain tiling is similar to ceramic, but with some special properties. It is made out of a harder, denser substance which makes it almost impervious to moisture. This means it is a perfect choice for tiling outside, or for extremely moisture -prone indoor areas such as showers, bathrooms, or even sink basins!

Of course, porcelain tiles also have the same advantages as stone and ceramic. Besides their durability, they are also extremely easy to clean, not holding onto dirt or dust. The strong seal on porcelain tiles means that they can be cleaned using a wide range of products, allowing you to wipe out the toughest of stains and keep your floor looking great.

Porcelain can also boost your energy efficiency, holding onto heat in the winter and staying cool in the summer.

Not sure whether stone, ceramic, or porcelain is the best fit for your project? Our team would love to discuss exactly which products are appropriate for your home. If you need help picking a style or design, we can visit you on-site with our extensive catalogue of samples to help you pick the perfect fit.


When it comes time to install your tiles of choice, Floors Depot is ready to work with you every step of the way to ensure the installation is a success.

While we’ve all seen those DIY tile installations, at Floors Depot we always recommend leaving the installation to our professional team for a headache-free process and a fantastic finish. That way you’ll be left with a perfect floor you can appreciate for years to come.


Once you’ve selected your product, our team will visit you on-site to give you a detailed quote based on the dimensions of the job. When you’re ready for the installation, we’ll handle every part of the process, from checking the subfloor to properly installing any necessary membranes to ensure that the final surface is resistant to cracking. If you’re installing in the bathroom, we’ll ensure the entire installation is waterproof, and complete with grout, seal and silicone.

Finally, if you already have a tile floor in the area of the installation, we’ll remove it before starting and take it away with us when we leave.


If you have any questions about the tile installation process, or the right type of product for your home, don’t hesitate to contact us – as Vancouver’s experts in stone tile flooring, we would love to give you the answers you need.

To recap, here are the key advantages you might expect from a porcelain tile floor:

  • Porcelain tiling has excellent durability and longevity, almost impervious to moisture;

  • Exceptionally easy to clean and maintain;

  • Porcelain tiles are naturally hypoallergenic and do not release odours or chemicals;

  • Dust has no way to accumulate; excellent choice for those with asthma;

  • Ceramic will store heat, helping to keep your home hot in the winter and cool in the summer.


We are proud of every job we do. No matter how big or how small, we always give our best work. We like to think of it as putting a smile on a sad floor’s face (and yours!).

We required an emergency floor replacement due on very short notice. We called Alex at 4pm on Friday afternoon and he was there by 6. Within days our floor was replaced and we were able to move back in. Alex and his team did an outstanding job. Their customer service is excellent. Marjan and I highly recommend Floors Depot!

Kevin Day


Alex was a clear communicator. The job was done quickly and he was accommodating to our tight schedule. When some unforeseen challenges came up with the renovation (out of his control) he solved it and kept the project on schedule. Our floors look great, and the whole experience was stress free. I would highly recommend Alex to anyone!

Joey Mitchell


Great price and excellent service from the Floors Depot store! They did a beautiful job installing our new laminate floors and paying special attention to finishings and trims. Thank you for a job well done. I will definitely refer you to my family and friends.

Can I lay stone tiles anywhere?

Stone tiles can be laid on any surface that is strong enough to support them. We would love to help you determine the right flooring product for your space.

Won’t stone feel cold underfoot?

As stone is highly absorbent of heat, stone will usually only feel slightly cooler than room temperature, and will feel quite warm in a well-heated room. Stone is also a great choice if you are looking into installing under floor heating!

How do I choose the right tile?

There is an incredible diversity among stone, ceramic, and porcelain tiles that can fit almost every space. Some simple guidelines that are usually mentioned are to select a large tile size for larger rooms, and to vary the shade or tone of the tile with the light available – you might pick a darker stone tile for a brightly lit kitchen, for example. 


That being said, because there is such a huge variety available (especially if you consider all of the patterns available on ceramic tiling), our team would love to help you select the perfect tile for your floor. As Vancouver’s experts on tile and stone flooring, we’ve helped countless clients pick the right product for their needs.
