Porcelain tile has been a favorite flooring material in kitchens and baths for many years. It is a ceramic tile that can be glazed or unglazed. There is no clear difference between a ceramic tile and a porcelain tile except one is much more impervious to moisture than the other. It is created by mixing clay and other materials together and firing it at very high heat. This firing process hardens the tile and depending on the length of time and the temperature will result in how hard the tile will become and how impervious it will be to water. Ceramic tiles are generally not as hard as porcelain tiles because they are fired for a much shorter time.
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.
