WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CERAMIC AND PORCELAIN FLOORING TILES?

Choosing the perfect floor tile is usually an easy process, although it looks pretty daunting at the beginning. As you shop this flooring line, you might find yourself wondering what the difference between ceramic and porcelain tiles is, so we’re going to address that question in today’s post.

The perfect floor tile is waiting

Ceramic and porcelain floor tiles are so similar they are often referred to as the same flooring material. However, there are a few differences between the two that could make one better for you than the other.

For instance, porcelain is a bit harder and denser than ceramic, with a permeability so low the tiles are nearly impervious to water. Ceramic is still a hard material, and it’s an excellent choice for bathrooms, kitchens, and more, but the difference is there.

Another difference between the two is that porcelain is made with clays of such high quality; it creates a through-body coloration that means chips and cracks will hardly be noticeable if they happen at all. Ceramic is often covered with brightly colored glazes that create a beautiful décor-matching visual, but cracks will often show easily.
