There are so many different types of tiles for you to choose from if you are looking to re-tile the walls or floor space in your home. The key to choosing the right type of tiles is to understand exactly what is available and what the differences are between each. Two of the most popular types of tiles that people opt for today are ceramic and porcelain tiles, but what are the differences between each. Here is a detailed comparison between the two so you are able to make the best informed decision that is right for you and your home.
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.
Many people say that porcelain and ceramic tiles are all the same because a porcelain tile is just an improvised adaptation of a ceramic tile. Both tiles are made from clay and quartz sand materials. Both also undergo the extreme heating process. The only difference is that porcelain tiles are made from more refined and well polished clay materials making it more expensive than any other regular ceramic tiles. Porcelain tiles are also denser and because of this higher density, they are possibly to absorb less water or moisture that's why they are more durable and are stain-resistant making them the most recommended tiles for bathroom purposes. Still because of this low absorption ability, they do not crack that easily during cold weather circumstances. They can withstand a harsh environment that's why they are very suitable for outdoor purposes.
