Some people use the two terms interchangeably, but there are
some differences between the two tiles. Porcelain is made with the highest
grade clay throughout the entire tile and fired at extremely high temperatures.
This makes them denser and more resistant to water than ceramic.
Ceramic uses lower grade clay during manufacturer, and the
tiles are fired at lower temperatures than Porcelain tile. Because of the type
of clay used, ceramic is most often coated with colorful glazes that cover up
the original tile color. For this reason, ceramic shows scratches and cracks
more so than porcelain.
