Here’s what you need to know about ceramic and porcelain tile

One of the most frequent questions about these products revolves around the difference between ceramic and porcelain. While both products are primarily the same in many ways, some specific differences could make a difference in your flooring plans. Right now, we’re going to tell you a little more about that, so you’ll be better able to plan for your floors when the time comes to do so.

Your porcelain and ceramic tile flooring are essential to us

Taking a step towards a new type of flooring can be an exciting opportunity, but it’s one that often seems daunting as well. That's why it's essential to know the differences between ceramic and porcelain. Understanding these slight differences can mean everything.

Porcelain is slightly denser than ceramic, and as such, offers a little more durability, water resistance, and protection against the elements. In addition, they are fired in extremely hot kilns, which results in this extra performance, including the ability to hide scratches, cracks, and scuffs with a through-body color benefit. But under many normal circumstances, either product will work just as well for your requirements and preferences.

You'll also find that porcelain and ceramic tile flooring offer extensive color and design options, making them the perfect addition to any décor matching need. You'll find natural visuals, extensive color and design options, formats, and even installation layouts that all suit your requirements for the perfect appearance. Few products offer the diversity you'll find in this product line, mainly including the ability to cut these pieces into shapes and sizes that are completely customized to your specific need.
