Gianni's Tile Gallery in Barrie, Ontario explains the difference between porcelain and ceramic tiles

To many people, porcelain and ceramic are terms that are used as if they were the same thing. However, there are a variety of differences between them, as well as a higher price for porcelain tiles compared to ceramic.

Porcelain tiles are a lot harder than ceramic tiles, and offers a greater design flexibility. Both tiles are made of clay, however the clay used to create porcelain tile is much more purified and refined. Porcelain tiles are much more impervious to water infiltration than ceramic, and they are much more scratch resistant, durable and resistant to stains.

Ceramic tiles are still very durable, and great for residential interiors, however should not be placed in an outdoor environment. They can be used in both wall and floor tile applications, and are much softer and easier to cut than porcelain. Porcelain requires special tools for cutting and shaping - which needs installing by a professional.
