Are you planning a floor tiling project for your home? Knowing which materials to choose can be tricky. This video explains the differences between ceramic and porcelain tiles. With this information, you will be able to tell which will work best for you! While porcelain and ceramic tiles are both very durable and are the most popular kind of tile used in homes, there are a few differences. Porcelain tends to be denser, making it the slightly more durable choice.
Ceramic tiles, on the other hand, are slightly more porous making them a less desirable choice for areas that may potentially get wet. As such, for any outdoor tiling, the preferable choice would be the denser porcelain that can handle temperature changes and moisture.
When it comes to cleaning the different types of tile, the maintenance is mostly the same. The finish that you choose for either kind of type will be the determining fact about the ease of cleaning or keeping clean. For example, if you choose a highly polished finish this will should fingerprints, footprints, or scratches much more readily than a matte finish. Whichever you end up choosing, you want to be informed so that you end up with the right type of tile for your home.
