There is not a lot of difference between porcelain tile and ceramic tile. In fact, at a glance, there are almost no visible differences at all. However, it's the composition and manufacturing processes that really differentiate porcelain and ceramic tiles. While both porcelain and ceramic tiles are clay-based and kiln-fired, porcelain is a specialized subtype of ceramic with a hardier manufacturing process. The real factors to consider when choosing porcelain tiles versus ceramic tiles are cost and water resistance.
Porcelain tiles are denser than ceramic tiles. This by their nature makes them more durable than ceramic tiles. They will certainly not wear as easily but they are more expensive than ceramic tiles. This is why you often see more porcelain tiles in commercial settings and more ceramic tiles in residential homes.
Tile has proven itself and withstood the test of time (it's been around for well over 5,000 years). With an abundance of styles and sizes to choose from, tile has become more relevant and prevalent today than ever before. Porcelain and Ceramic tile both bring many benefits to flooring. They are durable and very long-lasting, they are both exceptionally easy to maintain and care for, they both provide a timeless elegance and they are very low maintenance.
In addition, both ceramic tile and porcelain tile are considered very "green" flooring materials. They are both hypoallergenic and they have possibly the best selection of colors, styles, textures, sizes and even shapes of any other flooring product on the market today.
