Which Is Stronger: Porcelain or Ceramic Floor Tile?
If you are trying to choose between porcelain or ceramic floor tile, the durability of porcelain is a factor to consider. Porcelain is a type of stone, and much more dense than ceramic, which is made out of clay glazed to form a hard surface.
Porcelain is a much more solid material and it will hold up to a lot of wear and tear. Most commercial tile jobs use porcelain because of its ability to hold up to foot traffic well. Accordingly, porcelain will be a little more expensive, but it will also last longer.
