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.
