Porcelain tile has been a favorite flooring material in kitchens and baths for many years. It is a ceramic tile that can be glazed or unglazed. There is no clear difference between a ceramic tile and a porcelain tile except one is much more impervious to moisture than the other. It is created by mixing clay and other materials together and firing it at very high heat. This firing process hardens the tile and depending on the length of time and the temperature will result in how hard the tile will become and how impervious it will be to water. Ceramic tiles are generally not as hard as porcelain tiles because they are fired for a much shorter time.
As mentioned, most people find the look of clean white tile to be universally appealing. It adds a brightness to a living space, giving it the appearance of being more open and welcoming. This is where porcelain tiles have the advantage of the more common ceramic white tiles. Porcelain is sleek, clean and beautiful, and the difference in appearance is noticeable. In fact, they don't just look cleaner; due to their density and hardness, porcelain materials (tiles) are more impervious to dirt, and are much easier to clean. Your ceramic white tile will look lovely at first, but it won't be long before day-to-day dirt gets ingrained, and its permanently dingy.
