Many people tend to think of ceramic & porcelain tile
as one single flooring product. While it's true, they are very similar in natural, characteristics, and makeup, there are enough differences between them that they are, indeed, two different products. Odds are, one will suit your needs or desires more so than the other will, and so half your choice is already made. It's still worth it, however, to carefully look over both products to make sure you get exactly what you need.

Some beneficial characteristics of ceramic & porcelain tile are expected. For instance, its resistance to water, moisture, humidity, and spills is one of the main reasons it makes a great addition to any kitchen or bathrooms. In many instances, it can be installed right inside the shower itself, with the correct slip-resistant glaze added for extra protection.
Durability is a mainstay with tile flooring, and you're sure to enjoy either one of them. Because of this, they are right at home in any room. In the kitchen, their waterproof personality blends well with the fact that they are also fire proof. They will not burn, so no smoke or fumes are created, even if there is a fire.
In extreme temperatures, either hot or cold, a properly installed tile flooring will never react to extremes in temperatures. Freezing or stifling heat will never cause these floors to crack, break or buckle. Furthermore, they can even be used on patios, for a nice flowing feel in and out of your home, as they are completely resistant to frost and freezing as well.
Finally, you'll greatly appreciate the sanitary factor that ceramic & porcelain tile offers. When health issues are important, such as in kitchens, bathrooms and nurseries, tile can be an addition that can take a lot of stress and worry off your shoulders.
