The hardness of porcelain tiles is an advantage for more reasons than appearance. This quality makes these tiles far more scratch resistant than ceramic tiles. When tiles get scratched up, you have to go to a lot of expense and trouble to get them polished out, and sometimes even that isn't possible. Porcelain tiles are also more resistant to chipping. This hardy nature also makes them less slippery than ceramic tiles, which makes them a better choice for safety reasons, as well. With all of the advantages of porcelain tiling, you might be wondering why some people choose ceramic tile at all. The reason has, up to now, been simple: Porcelain tiles are slightly more expensive. However, not all costs are found on a price tag. When you really look at the overall expenses, taking into account the fact that porcelain tiles are less likely to be scratched, chipped or cracked, that their colors stay bright, that they're easy to clean and more safe for your family, it seems clear that in the long run porcelain tiles are well worth the price.
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.
