Many people use the terms ceramic & porcelain interchangeably, as if they are the same product. They are very similar, but each one has its own unique set of characteristics that will probably make one better for your purposes than the other.
Porcelain, for example, is made with the finest quality clay available and fired at very high temperatures when kiln dried. They have a color scheme that runs through the entire tile body, which means you’re far less likely to see blemishes such as cracks and chips. Porcelain is very hard, and has a high resistance to water, which makes it a perfect flooring for kitchens and bathrooms. Ceramic is also made with all natural materials and kiln dried to finish.
With color variations that come with the mixture of those natural materials, ceramic tile is usually covered with beautiful brightly colored glazes that make it a joy to decorate with. You can choose to create a solid floor color, or patterns and designs that will match your décor. You can also create mosaics, or come up with your very own unique designs that will truly make your floors one of a kind. Ceramic is also durable and water resistant, especially when coated with a protective layer.
Due to the delicate nature of ceramic & porcelain tile, we advise against making it a DIY project. This is a material that requires specialized tools and some knowledge of working with the product, to assure that pieces are not damaged or broken.
