Porcelain or ceramic?
The question often asked is which is better, porcelain or ceramic? Both are available in a large range of styles, colours and textures; but the answer to this question is less about aesthetics and more about functionality. Porcelain tiles are made from fine clay, consisting of quartz, kaolinitic and feldspare, which are sprayed and shaped by pressing the clay until it forms a semi solid material. It is then blasted with intense heat. Porcelain then becomes a material that is known for its resistance to moisture, resistance to wear and tear and any deep abrasions, making porcelain tiles a fantastic choice for all living spaces.
