When it comes to deciding which tile to use in your home, most people waver between choosing porcelain tile or a ceramic white tile. Certainly both have great qualities, bringing beauty and charm into the space you are living in. Good quality tile adds an elegant tastefulness to a room, as well as providing flooring that can stand up to more use than wood or carpet. This is why it's so important to make sure you're choosing the right kind of tile. Everyone loves the clean, bright look of white tile, so it's little wonder that people wonder if they should use ceramic or porcelain tile. A lot of DIY tile installers ask the difference between the two, and the answer is surprising. Despite a superficial similarity, differences abound between the two types of tile.
As a tile professional and owner of an online tile store, the difference between ceramic tile and porcelain tile has become a common question that comes up on a daily basis. I often hear a consumer say, ”I need porcelain tile because if it chips nobody will notice because the color goes all the way through.” Well, this is only true in through body porcelain tiles, and they are not the most common porcelain tiles. The most common form of tile is glazed porcelain tile. It is the most affordable but the color does not go all the way through. When I hear a customer say something along these lines it is time to ask myself a question. Should I explain or educate? In this article I will attempt to do both.
