How to Select Porcelain TileEast Marble FZE
Porcelain and ceramic tiles are cousins, both made from clay and hardened by being baked or fired. The difference is in the clay and the manufacturing process — porcelain tiles are baked at temperatures up to 1,200 degrees Fahrenheit, which produces a very hard tile. Both ceramic and porcelain tiles are used in homes on floors, countertops and walls, but porcelain is preferred in areas subject to moisture, like kitchens and bathrooms. Porcelain also is the choice around swimming pools. Adding porcelain tile can increase a home’s value.
