What Should You Choose?
You can achieve a beautiful floor with both ceramic and porcelain types of tile. As you think of the colors and designs that coordinate with your aesthetic in your kitchen, bathrooms or other living spaces, there are a few considerations to keep in mind before making a final decision.
If you’re looking for a more affordable option, ceramic tiles are the go-to choice. The price you pay for your new floors depends on the time spent on installation, including cutting the material and placing it across the room’s area. Since porcelain is denser, its clay material is more difficult to cut and lay properly. Less labor and time installing your new floor makes ceramic tiles the more inexpensive flooring option.
If your main priority is looking for a flooring option that withstands moisture and heat, porcelain is the best choice. You may like the idea of having a durable material in your kitchen or bathroom that can last years amid moisture, spills, hot temperatures and other messes without showing any wear and tear. While ceramic can offer a long life span of durability, you can achieve the same look with added protection from the less porous density of porcelain tiles.
