Porcelain is both a stunning and durable material for countertops, given its resistance to heat, stains, scratches, and chemicals. They can also look like natural stones, as they are available in various styles and colors. And on top of its beauty and durability, porcelain is made of 100% natural, clay-based raw materials, making it environmentally friendly.

Ease of Maintenance

Perhaps the biggest reason many homeowners decide to go with porcelain is that they are easy to clean with ordinary household cleaners. They also don’t need to be buffed or polished to maintain their finish.

Durability

Porcelain countertops are lighter than quartz, which makes them susceptible to cracking in rare situations. However, in most cases, porcelain is nearly indestructible and lasts over time.

Price

The installation prices are slightly different due to the extensive fabrication of porcelain countertops, but otherwise, they are similar to quartz. The average cost for porcelain is roughly between $120-$150 per square foot.
