Large Selection of Ceramic & Porcelain Tile
The major difference between porcelain and ceramic tile is how it’s made. Both are made from a clay mixture that’s fired in a kiln. Porcelain is made from more refined clay and is fired at a higher temperature. This makes it denser and more durable than ceramic tile. Porcelain tiles are the best option for flooring If you’re looking for durability and ease of care. However, don’t rule out ceramic as a wall tile. Although not as dense, it’s still easy to clean and maintain.

Ceramic & Porcelain
Porcelain tile is made from dense, feldspar-enriched clay. Fired at a higher kiln temperature, it’s denser and more durable than ceramic. Porcelain is also known to be exceptionally impermeable to water. While both are non-porous, porcelain is a better choice for flooring.
Nothing beats the beauty and unique look of natural stone. Similar to a snowflake, no two pieces are the same. Stone stays naturally cool, which is terrific for warm climates. They’re also a natural heat conductor, making them a top choice to pair with radiant heat. Unfortunately, the stone is more expensive than porcelain and can easily stain, scratch and chip. Natural stone is best used in low-traffic areas such as Powder Rooms and Master Bathrooms.
Glass tiles offer beautiful color and depth. All but the darkest glass tiles tend to reflect light rather than absorb it. They’re also easy to clean and are resistant to stains, mold, and mildew. One of the most significant drawbacks of glass tiles is the price. Not only is the material cost high, but the installation is also. Glass is tough to install, so it's best to hire someone with experience working with Glass.
