Ceramic & porcelain tile have a great many benefits that you will come to appreciate, especially once it’s in your home. While they aren’t the same product, they do share many similarities. Their differences, however, may make one better for you than the other.
Porcelain tile is created using high-quality clay that is then fired at very high temperatures. This creates a product that is dense, hard and very resistant to water, moisture, and humidity. This makes it a great floor covering to place in kitchens, bathrooms, and foyers, but it’s also just as easily placed in any other room of your home.
It’s also a great choice for those who enjoy the look of all natural materials. Since the color of this tile runs throughout the entirety of the piece, it is often only covered with a clear glaze. This allows the beauty of the natural clay to shine through.
Ceramic tile is also made with quality clay, mixed with other natural materials as well. It’s almost as dense and hard as porcelain, with excellent resistance to water and moisture as well. Since the materials used to make ceramic are mixed, this means that the color of the tiles varies greatly from one to another. For this reason, brightly colored glazes are used, making it great to show off your decorating and design talents. Use a solid color scheme, or choose to create patterns and mosaics. With ceramic, the sky is the limit.
