Porcelain tile is often the same color throughout the entire tile, since a higher quality of clay is used in its making. Ceramic, on the other hand, uses a neutral inner color underneath a vibrant glaze coating. This means that if you chip or crack a porcelain floor, it won’t show nearly as easily as ceramic will.
Finally, a major difference between porcelain and ceramic is that you will definitely want to have porcelain installed by a professional. The chances of having one crack or break are high when installing, and this can cause many problems for someone who doesn’t know exactly what they’re doing.
