It may not seem like much of a distinction to you, but ceramic and porcelain tiles
do behave differently in various installations, so it can be bigger than you think.
The big difference is that porcelain is always completely impervious to water. It’s also heavier; while both are made from clay, porcelain includes sand and maybe even some glass. It’s good for high-traffic areas like the kitchen, bath or foyer. It can also be used outside on decks or patios.
Ceramic can also be waterproof BUT only when it’s glazed, and that should be at least every year or two. That glazing also makes it super-strong, but it’s never recommended for outdoor use. Your flooring pro will advise you.
