You’ve got your new project underway in old Sydney town and the next thing on the list of things to do is decide what tile you’re going to use. You are confused aren’t you? Ceramic tiles, porcelain tiles, porcelain and ceramic, they’re both the same thing aren’t they? Not exactly. Let’s take a little look at the differences between ceramic tiles and porcelain tiles and help you make your decision.
The first thing that you are going to find is the range of porcelain tiles is much wider than the range of ceramic tiles. Porcelain tiles are produced with a more advanced technology resulting in a range of tile that will suit any need in your project. The porcelain range contains a marble look, stone look and the very stylish timber tile look, just to name a few. They come in various finishes too such as polished, semi polished, mat, brushed and glazed just to name a few.
Another clear advantage of porcelain tiles over ceramic tiles is the absorbency rate. Porcelain tiles have a much lesser rate of absorption than ceramic tiles which is a clear advantage when it comes to choosing a tile for a wet area such as your bathroom or an area that may get wet a lot, such as an outside entertainment area. Along with less absorption, porcelain tiles are stain and frost resistant which makes it a breeze when it comes time to clean your new tiles.
Another aspect of porcelain tiles that is an advantage is they are a full body tile, which means the colour runs through the entire depth of the tile, unlike ceramic tiles sydney that only have colour on the top of the tile. This means that if your new tiles get chipped, a porcelain tile is going to disguise it much better than a ceramic tile.
