Are Porcelain and Ceramic Tiles the Same Thing?

You may have heard porcelain and ceramic tiles are the same thing. However, there are some specific differences between the two, and you should probably find out what they are before choosing a particular product for your floor, and we can help with that.

What can porcelain and ceramic tiles do for you?

Porcelain is made only of the highest quality natural clay, providing a stunning through-body color that helps hide chips, cracks, and scratches if they happen. However, the hardness and density you’ll find in these floor tiles resist damage from daily wear to a great extent.

Ceramic tiles are also made with excellent clay materials, but other natural ingredients, such as feldspar, are added. The result is almost as dense, hard, and water-resistant as porcelain and often covered with beautiful glass glazes for the best visual effects.

There will be no discernable difference between the two in many situations after installing them in your home. When you're ready to discuss all the most essential details and plan your installation, we'll be happy to bring samples to your door for your consideration.
