Porcelain and ceramic tiles are constructed differently. Both are made of water and clay, but porcelain contains denser clay minerals like quartz and feldspar, and as a result are more dense and less porous as a result. Because porcelain is less porous, it’s more durable. It’s less likely to chip, and it can even handle the freeze/thaw conditions of the outdoors. Porcelain can also have a through body color, meaning the top layer of the tile matches the body of the tile, or a color body, which means the body of the tile closely matches the color of the surface design.
Floor tile is made to be thick and sturdy so it can withstand foot traffic. Meanwhile, wall tile is thinner and lighter for easier installation. Some floor tiles can be installed on walls, depending on the size and weight, though you should consult a professional before choosing to install floor tile on your walls.
Contrary to popular belief, ceramic tile and grout, by themselves are not waterproof. Water can penetrate through cement-based grout and work its way through the substrate. Glazed tile is water-resistant when installed properly, meaning they can withstand a splash or quick accidental drop in water. For use in high-moisture areas like bathtubs, showers, and around pools, you will need to check with a Tiling professional.
