Both Porcelain and Ceramic tiles are available in virtually endless colours, styles, sizes, shapes and textures.
Ceramic tiles usually are made from red or white clay fired in a kiln. Ceramic tiles are used in both wall and floor applications. Since they are softer, they are easier to cut, and suitable for light to moderate traffic areas.
Porcelain tile is mostly made pressed porcelain clay dust, and the result is a tile that’s extremely dense. In terms of texture, it’s fine grained and smooth. Glazed porcelain tiles are more resistant to damage than ceramic tiles, and are better in high traffic areas.
Both Porcelain and Ceramic tiles have numerous benefits, such as durability, stain resistance, hygenic, easy to clean, scratch resistance, resistant to fading and burns, and is environmentally friendly.
