Why you should consider ceramic & porcelain tile flooring

Ceramic & porcelain tile are often so similar they are often referred to as the same floor covering. While their similarities are many, there are some stark differences between the two, and since it might make a difference, we’d like to share them with you.

Either floor covering is a perfect addition to any space in your home. They're good looking, durable, and have a great lifespan, so you'll get your money's worth. It’s worth taking a closer look, however, to make sure you get the floor covering that truly fits your needs.

The differences between ceramic & porcelain tile

Porcelain tile flooring is created with only high-quality clay, fired in extremely hot kilns, and feature hard, dense tiles that work in a variety of spaces. Often, these pieces feature a through-body color scheme so that no additional glazes or colors are necessary or added. If they chip or break, you might not even notice it, because the color doesn’t change.

Porcelain features a low water permeability, making a perfect addition to any rooms where dampness, humidity, or spills are a frequent occurrence. Often used to create natural, rustic appearances, they’re perfect for minimalist styles or the natural, midwestern look. Visit our showroom today to see our selection!
Ceramic is also created using high-quality clay, but other materials are also added, all of them all-natural as well. They are then kiln-fired in extreme heat, but they do not come out quite as hard or dense as porcelain. They still offer excellent protection against liquids and can be used in all the same places as porcelain.

Since ceramic doesn’t offer a through-body coloration, they are often covered with liquid glass glazes in a variety of bright and vibrant colors. These are used to create some of the most unique floor coverings in the world.
