The flooring pros and cons of these two types of tile are similar. Porcelain is basically another type of ceramic. The difference is porcelain is heavier, stronger, more resistant to water, harder to work with, and more costly. Ceramic tiles are easier to stand on and are more customizable.
Overall, ceramic is great. It’s durable, water-resistant, and comes in many styles. The ease of maintaining this flooring attracts homeowners too. It’s also pretty affordable.
But, it isn’t perfect. Tile is always cold or cool underfoot. This is great for summer but not for when it gets cold. It can be hard to stand on too. People use rugs to help with these problems.
