Both are made of clay, but porcelain is a little denser than ceramic because it also includes sand and even some glass.
It’s typically found on the floors of high traffic areas, such as the kitchen and bath. It’s completely waterproof, whether or not it is glazed, and can be used outside on decks, patios and pool areas.
This tile has some exciting patterns, such as the basketweave, and it’s one of the best substitutes for natural stone.
We told you about the durability and lack of porosity, but there’s also another advantage for using these stone tiles: Natural stone tends to be slippery when wet, but the manufacturing process creates non-slip surfaces, ideal for bathroom and shower floor surfaces.
Ceramic tile is thinner than porcelain and must be glazed to stay waterproof. That glazing also gives it the hard exterior. It comes in a lot of colors, patterns, and designs and can be used on the floor and on backsplashes and walls, but NEVER outside.
Both are easy to clean and ultra-durable.
