How is porcelain different from ceramic

Both are made of clay and fired, but porcelain’s content also includes sand and sometimes glass. It’s also fired at higher temperatures. As a result, it’s heavier, denser, and waterproof whether or not it’s glazed and a little more resistant to frost, scratches, and spills.

It's usually seen in kitchens and bathrooms because they are both busy areas.

Porcelain stone tiles are a terrific alternative to natural stone. They are affordable, non-porous and hard.

That’s not all, however, porcelain can be made to look like anything, including leather and wood, both of which are expected to be hot trends in 2020.

Ceramic is tough, too, but its thinner and, when glazed, is completely waterproof. The glazing gives it that tough outer shell. It’s not common, but if one does crack, you just replace the broken piece andnot the entire flooring.

Highly decorative, you'll see it not only on floors but also on walls and backsplashes and as borders and art. It comes in an almost limitless number of colors, patterns, designs, shapes, and sizes and is only appropriate for inside use.

You’ll love your new tile flooring because it is:

  • Durable. Properly maintained, it lasts for years. They’re almost impossible to break.

  • Easy-to-clean. The hard surface doesn’t really attract dirt or pollutants, but if any do land on the floor, just wipe it off. It also improves indoor air quality, especially good for allergy and asthma sufferers.

  • Affordability. It is considered to be one of the most affordable materials, especially since you can mix and match different types, which will give you different price points.
