Because they are made of finer clay materials are fired at a higher temperature, porcelain tiles are harder in texture making their physical feature jagged which makes them appropriate for more challenging purposes such as flooring functions. They are usually made from white clay. There are glazed and unglazed porcelain tiles. The unglazed types are the most popular choice because the colors go all the way through making the little scratches and dirt not visible at all. These types of tiles are also harder to cut because of their hardness and density making them more difficult to customize to fit your house's interior design. Ceramic tiles on the other hand come in glazed and unglazed types. The unglazed ceramic tiles are more at risk of cracking and so are not advisable for flooring intentions requiring for a better care. The glazed ones are glass-like with dazzling designs making them more appropriate for wall purposes. They tend to be slippery in texture and so are very not suitable for bathroom use. They are best for mural use. They are prepared from brown, white or red clay.
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.
