Ceramic & porcelain facts for you
Ceramic & porcelain are often spoken of as if they are the same product, and in many ways, they are very similar. However, they do have enough differences that one is probably more likely to work for you than the other. It’s important to know these differences so that your floors will last as long as they're supposed to and give you the benefits you’re looking for in a flooring.
Porcelain tile is made with the highest quality clays, formed, and then fired in very hot kilns. The result is a high-density, highly water-resistant floor covering that works in a variety of spaces. The materials used to create porcelain give the tile a through-body color scheme which means the tile can be chipped or broken and you’re not likely to even know it. They are usually covered with a clear glaze, so their natural beauty can shine through.
Ceramic tile is also made with high-quality clays, however, other materials are added which negate the possibility of the same through-body color option that comes in porcelain. For this reason, these tiles are glazed with colorful glazes and can be used for highly decorative purposes such as solid colors, patterns, and especially unique mosaics.
