Porcelain Kitchen Countertops by Mogastone
With today’s technology, porcelain can mimic the natural veining and designs of natural stone to create a hard, durable, heat-resistant material for your kitchen.
What are Porcelain Countertops?
Porcelain countertops are made from ceramic clay and mineral coloring which makes it a highly durable and non-porous surface. They are very heat-, scratch-, and UV- (sunlight) resistant. Because of this, porcelain is an excellent material for outdoors. It’s a non-porous material which can look like natural stone with today’s technology. Porcelain has become much more popular recently, especially in Europe. Although porcelain slabs are usually thinner than most other materials, it’s a great material for your kitchen countertops.
Consider adding a mitered edge to porcelain for a more modern and thicker look. Also, consider choosing to incorporate full backsplash in your kitchen. Check out our blog on edge profiles and full backsplash to learn more.

Caring for Porcelain
Porcelain doesn’t require much maintenance. You just need to clean it with some soap and water, and it’ll last for many years to come. Porcelain is not a porous material, so it does not have to ever be sealed. This is one quality of porcelain that gives it an advantage over natural stones, like granite or marble. Porcelain can chip, however, so take caution not to bang it with something hard and heavy.
