Ceramic Tile vs. Porcelain Tile

The question that we get asked most frequently is what is the difference between ceramic and porcelain tile.

The reality is that ceramic and porcelain are not two completely different kinds of tile. Porcelain tile is essentially a variety of ceramic tile and "porcelain" is a term used to describe better quality ceramic tile. The difference is that porcelain tile is fired at higher temperatures. As a result, porcelain tile is more dense, durable, and has a lower water absorption than ceramic tile. 

Since ceramic tile is less durable than porcelain tile, it generally can not sustain foot-traffic and can only be used for wall tile. However, certain smaller size ceramic tiles can still be used for floor tile. On the other hand, porcelain tiles are much more durable and are suitable to be used as both wall tile and floor tile.
