Ceramic vs Porcelain Tile
In homes, ceramic tile is the most popular tile flooring option. Ceramic is strong and durable, and it resists moisture and heat. As a result, it’s suitable in kitchens, bathrooms, and other areas where moisture is an issue. Also, ceramic tile is available in a wide variety of design options. You can choose from many different shapes, sizes, colors, and patterns. In fact, there is even ceramic tile that looks like wood! Ceramic tile is therefore one of the best ways to have natural beauty and premium durability in areas with moisture.
Porcelain tile is another popular option for residential settings. What is the primary difference between porcelain and ceramic tile? Porcelain is denser and stronger than ceramic, so it is better suited for outdoor settings such as patios. Porcelain tile can withstand heavy moisture, changing weather conditions, and other environmental factors. In addition, because of porcelain’s extra strength and water resistance, it is often the better choice for showers and baths.
