Types of Tile
Modern-day tile presents many, many different options, although some things never change: ceramic, porcelain, and stone remain the most frequently utilized materials in the tile manufacturing industry.
The major differences between the two:
Ceramic tiles are formed using natural clay and minerals, for a sturdy tile that can endure the constant presence of passing footsteps.
Porcelain tiles are formed in a similar fashion: the difference is that they get finished at higher temperatures in the kiln. The end result is a denser tile that works really well in outdoor spaces.
Stone tiles are whittled out of naturally-sourced stones, including marble, slate, and granite.
