Glazed porcelain tiles are ideal for the perfect flooring in your home. There are many differences between porcelain tiles and ceramic tiles for use on your floors or walls. Ceramic tiles are made from red or white clay and are fired then finished with a glaze that helps the pattern and colours to be sustained. These are normally easy to cut due to softer materials and have a PEI 0-3 rating. Porcelain tiles are made by dust pressed methods from porcelain clay that creates a fine grain and smooth face. These tiles offer more water resistance and frost resistance than ceramic tiles. Glazed porcelain tiles offer a surface that is resistant to wear and tear and a harder surface that is great for high traffic areas such as the kitchen or tea room. Full porcelain floor tiles have a colour and pattern that follows through to the base of the tile, so the patterns are never worn away like ceramic tiles.
Cheap tiles can have quality control issues. Many times people choose their sample tile and then order them. When the shipment arrives they can look vastly different from the ones that were originally ordered. Often the colors and textures can look different from the sample. Other times there may be surface scratches or other imperfections that make them look ugly. Once the shipment arrives at your door it can be extremely difficult to return them and ship them back. Other times the quality control issues are not noticed until the tiles are installed and then the manufacturer will never accept returns on already installed tiles no mater what types of problems they have.
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.
