Both ceramic and porcelain tile are excellent choices for any space in your home. Often, these two are spoken of as if they are the same product. However, there are enough differences between the two, to make one a better choice for you than the other. For instance, made with the highest quality clay available, porcelain rarely needs anything other than a clear top coat, as the color scheme remains the same throughout the piece. This means you can achieve a very natural look that’s perfect for minimal or nature themes.
Ceramic is made with clays that are mixed with other all-natural materials, so the color of the tile can often vary throughout the piece. This means that ceramic is often covered by bright, colorful glazes,that make it a designer’s dream come true. Any space can be beautified with this material.
Tile is an excellent choice in rooms where water resistance is necessary, especially bathrooms, foyers, and kitchens. With an extremely low absorption rate, you can even use this amazing material right inside your shower stalls. In such a case, just make sure you talk with your flooring professional about the addition of a safe, slip-free coating to be applied. And then be prepared to be amazing with your results.
