Choosing between Ceramic and Porcelain made Tiles
Despite being very similar and belonging to the same family of materials, porcelain and ceramic do have a couple of differences of which should be considered when choosing your tiles to identify which would suit your needs and room better for the longevity.
One of the differences is that Tiles made of Porcelain will absorb only 0.5% water whilst ceramic surfaces will absorb more than this due to the clay used in its original production process. In production, the clay used for porcelain is more compact and less porous, therefore, soaking in less water after the tiles have been laid. This allows the tiles to be more hard-wearing so therefore great for high-traffic areas in the home or commercial property or those areas prone to liquids such as the bathroom, utility room and kitchen. Ceramic made tiles are fantastic in slightly less traffic congested areas in the home.
