Porcelain or ceramic?

People tend to use these two words interchangeably, but that’s not quite right. Although porcelain is a type of ceramic, it is made from a finer clay and includes sand and sometimes even glass.

It is fired at higher temperatures, and all of this makes it ultra-strong and suitable for high traffic areas. It is resistant to both water and frost, whether or not it’s glazed and can also be used outside on deck and patio floors and around pools.
Ceramic tile flooring in Logan, OH from Bob's Wholesale Carpet
Porcelain is a large format tile that can be made to look likeanything, from stone to leather to wood. Some people like it especially because of the larger format/fewer seams, especially in the case of stone; it makes it looks like something that came directly out of the quarry.

Limitless number of colors, patterns, and designs

Ceramic tiles can also be made to look like anything.

They are either glazed or unglazed but must be glazed to be waterproof. They can also be used on floors, as well as backsplashes and accent walls. Be sure you use a tile grade-appropriate for flooring; ask your retailer for confirmation.
