Ceramic and porcelain tiles are a brilliant way to add a splash of color and interesting patterns to your floors and walls, but which type of tiles do you choose? Is one type of tile better than the other? Well, that depends on the look you want to create, your budget and how long you want them to last. Porcelain Tile Cape Town
A fabulous choice of colours and patterns
Both ceramic and porcelain tiles come in a range of beautiful colours and patterns. But porcelain tiles offer you a greater choice, so if you are looking for something different or something that has all the benefits of tiles but looks like marble or wood, then take a look at the wonderful range of porcelain tiles such as the Palatine. You’d be hard pushed to tell them apart from the real thing, and you’ll definitely find some tiles that are perfect for your home!
Easy to maintain
Both ceramic tiles and porcelain tiles are very easy to clean and maintain as any dirt and spills can be cleaned up quickly and easily with a cloth. Stains and odors have no chance of sticking to them! This makes both ceramic and porcelain tiles a fantastic way to keep the kitchen, bathroom, and hallway beautifully clean and sparkling.
Both are durable
With care and proper maintenance, both ceramic and porcelain tiles will look good and last for years, but porcelain tiles will last longer. Porcelain tiles are made from a finer, denser type of clay and they are baked at a higher temperature. This makes them much harder than ceramic tiles, so they don’t chip and scratch so easily. Also, color is added to porcelain tiles all the way through (whereas the color is added only to the surface of a ceramic tile), so you are unlikely to notice any chips and scratches if they do occur – perfect if you’ve got lots of kids and pets running around!
