You can enjoy 'wood' in your bathroom, or other moisture-prone space since ceramic and porcelain wood-look floor tile is available in many styles.
Of course, this floor covering is also perfect for different home areas. Design possibilities are endless since tile styles range from traditional to contemporary.
Ceramic vs. porcelain
Ceramic and porcelain are both made of clay but:
● Ceramic is composed of coarse clay; porcelain is composed of fine kaolin clay.
● Ceramic tile is hardened in the kiln at a lower temperature than porcelain tile.
● Ceramic tile is best for medium traffic areas; porcelain floor tile stands up to high foot traffic.
Porcelain tile is more costly than ceramic tile but worth the extra expense. In addition, it is the most durable type of tile on the market, so you can expect your new floor to last many decades.
Porcelain is harder and denser than ceramic, and while ceramic tile must be glazed to be waterproof, porcelain is naturally impervious.
Ceramic tile, too, will serve you well for many years, and you may find that it is preferable if you want to budget for another perk.
Clay-based tile is a great heat conductor, so an upgrade to an in-floor radiant heating system is an option worthy of consideration. However, ceramic is a good choice if your project includes wall tile.
