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.
