Ceramic


Ceramic tile is coarse clay that a hot kiln has hardened. Most of your ceramic tile comes in a standard size and type. The colors are neutral but can be made vibrant and unique, and colored grout can add to the visual. Ceramic is porous and remains so until it is glazed. Then it becomes waterproofed. It is easier to cut than porcelain, affecting the time needed to install it into your floor.

Porcelain


Porcelain is made of Kaolin clay. It is still considered a ceramic product. It requires higher temperatures than ceramic to harden this clay. Porcelain is known to stand up to heavy foot traffic. It is resistant to scratches and stains. It is a costlier product, being that it is of a higher quality than ceramic. You have many colorful designs to choose from in our showroom. It can even be made to look like wood or stone, which adds to your décor options.

Porcelain colors


The surface and the body of porcelain are the same throughout the piece. So the same pigments run through the entire piece. You don’t need a surface glaze on this the way that ceramic does. The through-body colors are usually solid colors.
