Porcelain tiles are a type of ceramic tiles. The difference between porcelain and ceramic is that porcelain is fired at a higher temperature, making it more dense and moisture-resistant. Porcelain tiles are available in matte, unglazed or a high-polished finish.
Porcelain tiles are also less porous, making them more stain-resistant.
Most porcelain tiles are suitable for both indoor and outdoor installations because they are dense and hard.
