There are some types of porcelain tiles that are quality made and do have characteristics that are vastly superior to ceramic tiles. You should always only shop for quality name brand tiles at quality tile shops to ensure that you are truly getting a quality product. Ask many questions at the tile store and ask to see as many samples as possible before you actually purchase them. Remember that many times you will be paying a premium for porcelain as opposed to just normal ceramic tiles. In many cases especially with indoor tile installations ceramic tiles will perform just as well at a much lower price.
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.
