All types of tile are more durable and dense than ceramic tile and require less maintenance than natural stone and hardwood. Glazed porcelain is more difficult to scratch and stain and resists moisture and frost. It is an attractive option for high-traffic areas and is easy to keep clean. It doesn't need to be polished or waxed and only needs sealing if a polished or unglazed tile was installed. Finally, at a fraction of the cost of natural stone can imitate this look for less without the headache of maintaining natural stone.
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.
