Porcelain tile looks great, is durable and easy to maintain. If you're looking for porcelain tiles, then Lowes is a great store to check out, both from an inventory as well as a price point of view. Lowes carries a wide selection of porcelain tiles by Del Conca and Armstrong and all of those brands make really nice products. These tiles are available in many different designs such as stone, mosaic and old world designs. Since there is such a large selection, it is easy to find something to go with your taste and decor.
There are decorative porcelain tiles which might be used on a portion of the wall as well as solid color tiles which can be used on a whole wall or backsplash. It could definitely be too much to use a very decorative tile for a whole wall, but matched and combined with a less busy design it can really stand out. Of course in some settings it may be preferably to really get rather bland and simple colors and styles, especially if you want some other parts of the design to pop. These porcelain tiles feature nice smooth surfaces and are available in various shades and colors. That definitely seems to be one prominent thing about porcelain tiles: the surfaces are almost always very smooth, even though the colors and designs differ. Tile is such a great material: it's suitable for both floors as well as walls, it's easy to clean and it's pretty affordable too, especially if you compare it to other materials.
