Understand the differences between Porcelain and Ceramic Tiles
While both tiles are fired, porcelain is fired longer and at higher temperatures than ceramic tiles, making porcelain more durable than ceramic. Porcelain tiles are denser than ceramic, making them harder and more water resistant. While ceramic is softer and easier to cut and install, porcelain tiles are better suited for high traffic areas like kitchens.
