Tile flooring in St. Croix Falls, WI from Cascade Flooring

What does “through body” color mean?

Through-body tile has the color through the whole piece, rather than just sitting in the glaze. Porcelain tile flooring, ideal for bustling areas like the kitchen with heavy foot traffic, is prone to drops and possibly scratches and is known for being through-body color. Read along with today's post to learn more. 

Make a big design splash

Because the colors and textures are consistent all the way through, this option is more vibrant. Also, any imperfections like chips and scratches are well-hidden with none of those white patches!


Through-body is slightly different than color-body. While through-body has little or no glaze, color-body is always glazed. That makes imperfections somewhat more noticeable and less expensive than through-body.
