There are some types of porcelain tiles that are quality made and do have characteristics that are vastly superior to ceramic tiles. You should always only shop for quality name brand tiles at quality tile shops to ensure that you are truly getting a quality product. Ask many questions at the tile store and ask to see as many samples as possible before you actually purchase them. Remember that many times you will be paying a premium for porcelain as opposed to just normal ceramic tiles. In many cases especially with indoor tile installations ceramic tiles will perform just as well at a much lower price.
If you prefer porcelain tiles, you should note there is a further substantial difference between glazed and un-glazed porcelain tiles. Those that are glazed are given a coat of liquid glass right before they are placed in the clay oven. This coating means that your tiles will not show any wear and tear, even after lengthy periods of time. Un-glazed porcelain tiles are more exposed, so more at risk of wear and tear, however they do look stunning, thus it is simply a matter of personal taste. Porcelain tiles, much like ceramic tiles, can be coloured, so you have more choice than plain white tiles, which of course look very elegant and stylish also.
