Porcelain tile and ceramic tile both start off the same, being composed of more or less the same materials, such as clay and quartz. After formation, they are both fired to high temperatures. What spells out the difference between the ceramic white tile and porcelain tile is that the latter uses a more highly refined and purified clay, making the porcelain tile denser than the other tile. This is an extremely important difference, since being more dense means that porcelain tile absorbs far less moisture, making it both durable and stain resistant.
It is important to choose porcelain tiles that are of a consistent size. Layout a few rows from the sample lot and you will be able to judge if they are the same size. The sample you lay out should be square if the size of each tile is the same. This is the time to check for cracks in the finishing. Once you get the colour combination right, you may go ahead and purchase porcelain tile flooring for your bathroom. Patterns, designs, and colour combinations are something you may want to discuss with your architect or interior designer.
