Another difference between the two is that porcelain features a through-body color. This means that throughout the body of the piece, the color does not change. This is important and means that chips, cracks, and breaks in your flooring won’t be nearly as noticeable with porcelain.
Since ceramic doesn’t have this feature, it is covered with bright colored glazes, that leave an entire world of design opportunity open to your every whim. Whether you choose porcelain or ceramic, if you think up a design, it can be done with these materials. Everything from all-natural, neutral looks to eclectic, artsy designs can be yours.
When it comes to installation, many homeowners are attempting to go the DIY route. While some flooring materials make this an easy process, we do not advise attempting it with tile flooring. Not only are specialized tools necessary to get the job done right, it also takes a good deal of experience in working with the material.
