The popularity of porcelain for large commercial projects grew immensely during the 20th century when buildings in the form of shops, hotels and airports had to get in line with safety regulations. Porcelain is an incredibly hard wearing and durable material and will reinforce any wall or floor it is applied on. It is also perfect for high traffic areas. This toughness derives from the manufacturing process of porcelain in which immense heat and pressure are deployed. Because natural stone is porous it can show signs of wear and tear after many years if it is not properly looked after. On the other hand if porcelain kitchen options are installed correctly they can last a lifetime with only basic cleaning and maintenance required. The durability of porcelain is also shown in its low permeability and resilience to damage from chemicals. As a material, porcelain has been used to sculpt decorative ornaments. Originating in China thousands of years ago, porcelain is now one of the most used materials in the construction industry throughout the world. Examples of where it has been utilised include the exterior of the Dakin Building in Brisbane, California. Aesthetically, highly polished porcelain bathroom products have a mirror like quality, particularly when in distinctive colours like black, white, red or blue.
