Ceramic vs. porcelain: What’s the difference?

As you shop for the perfect tile flooring, you're sure to wonder about the differences between porcelain and ceramic tile and if they will matter in your home. In today's post, we're going to tell you more about these materials so you can make a better-informed decision for your personal needs, so read along with us here.

Tile flooring gives you everything you need

Whether you need porcelain or ceramic tile depends significantly on the characteristics found in each one. For instance, you might prefer the through-body color scheme found in porcelain, as it better hides cracks and chips if they happen.

On the other hand, ceramic is an attractive option that offers brightly glazed pieces that are perfect for creating impressive mosaics, backsplashes, and durable flooring. They offer many of the same attributes found in porcelain but have added materials such as feldspar and sand that help the material hold together.

No matter which option you choose, you’ll find the durability is very much the same. While porcelain tile flooring is a bit harder, denser, and more impervious to water, both products offer outstanding durability in almost any area you’ll install them.

When you’re ready to begin your flooring search, we're prepared to work with you. Stop by any time to speak with a flooring associate.
