Difference Between Ceramic and Porcelain

KR Tile & Stone has two materials known as porcelain and ceramic tile. Porcelain tends to be more of a popular material selection than natural stone because it’s resistant to spills, and accidents do happen in the kitchen. The material selection really does depend on your living condition. Not only is porcelain popular in the kitchen but it’s also used for bathroom floors because it’s a dense material that’s less porous and a studier than other materials. If you like other material options like granite or limestone you can always find porcelain tile that mimics these natural stones, being known for its versatility.
What’s the difference between porcelain and ceramic tiles? Well the main difference is that ceramic tile is known to be porous and when it’s coated with a special glaze it’s resistant to scratching. Although it tends to be easier to install, porcelain tile is denser than ceramic, meaning that it’s stronger and more durable. It will absorb less water than ceramic, meaning that it can be a good addition for outdoor projects.
