Although they look the same, the difference between ceramic and porcelain tiles is that a porcelain tile is denser and less porous than a ceramic tile. In simple terms this means a porcelain tile is much more hard wearing and suitable for both indoor and outdoor use.
We recommend that ceramic tiles are best suited to interior walls and floors.
A very simple explanation is that a ceramic tile is made of clay that is formed and shaped and then fired in a very hot kiln. In the past, the production process meant that an unglazed tile was fired once and a glazed tile was fired twice. While modern technologies have improved the production, the process is still very much the same.
