Many people say that porcelain and ceramic tiles are all the same because a porcelain tile is just an improvised adaptation of a ceramic tile. Both tiles are made from clay and quartz sand materials. Both also undergo the extreme heating process. The only difference is that porcelain tiles are made from more refined and well polished clay materials making it more expensive than any other regular ceramic tiles. Porcelain tiles are also denser and because of this higher density, they are possibly to absorb less water or moisture that's why they are more durable and are stain-resistant making them the most recommended tiles for bathroom purposes. Still because of this low absorption ability, they do not crack that easily during cold weather circumstances. They can withstand a harsh environment that's why they are very suitable for outdoor purposes.
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.
These are made up of hard and bright ceramic that not only gives it a long life but also brightens its look. As the range of Porcelain tiles is wide, it might be too hectic to find a variety of Porcelain tiles out of many. Hence, getting an idea about the whole range of the tiles and choosing one from that lot is the best option though it is time-consuming. The one best way to find out the best Porcelain tiles for you is to walk up to a nearest tiles showroom and get an idea about the array available in different colors, dimensions and many more.
It is important to choose porcelain tiles that are of a consistent size. Layout a few rows from the sample lot and you will be able to judge if they are the same size. The sample you lay out should be square if the size of each tile is the same. This is the time to check for cracks in the finishing. Once you get the colour combination right, you may go ahead and purchase porcelain tile flooring for your bathroom. Patterns, designs, and colour combinations are something you may want to discuss with your architect or interior designer.
