Both ceramic and porcelain tile
have many of the same benefits. Porcelain, because of the ingredients used in its manufacture, and the high temperatures at which it is kiln dried is harder, denser and therefore more water resistant than ceramic. For this reason, it’s a great addition to kitchens, bathrooms and laundry rooms. However, it can be just as “at home” in any other room as well.
Porcelain has a through-body construction that means the color remains the same throughout the entire piece. This means that chips and cracks are much less likely to show on porcelain than on ceramic.
Ceramic tile is only shortly behind porcelain in all of its benefits. It has the added benefit of being covered by brightly colored glazes, which means your designing options are limited only by your own imagination. Not only do you have a wide variety of colors, styles, and designs, but you can also use a combination of these to create mosaics, patterns and so much more. These tiles can even be cut into different shapes to create truly original designs.
You’ll love the ease of cleaning afforded by this flooring material, especially if they are properly maintained and cared for over the duration of their lifetime. Be sure to consult the manufacturer’s specifications in treating stains or cleaning up heavy messes. And be sure to use a professional installer to have this flooring installed.
