What are the two kinds of tile?
First, you need to know this because even though the differences are subtle, they can make a difference in installation. Porcelain is a little heavier, being comprised of clay, sand and sometimes glass, and is waterproof even when not glazed. It’s often installed on bathroom floors, as well as around tub and shower. It can be used outside on decks, patios, and pool-side. It is always white, but comes in a lot of patterns, from hexagons to geometrics and florals. Ceramic needs to be glazed. That’s what makes it waterproof and gives it such a hard coating. You can use it on the floor anywhere, but it’s also great for backsplashes and accent walls. This tile can never be used outside, however.
