What Are Porcelain Countertops?

Porcelain countertops are crafted from a type of ceramic known for its strength and versatility. They are made by firing refined clay at high temperatures, resulting in a dense and durable surface. This process allows for the creation of various types, including glazed, full-bodied, and colored-body porcelain, each offering unique characteristics.
Porcelain countertops can mimic the look of natural stone, wood, or concrete, offering a wide range of design options.
