Can both porcelain and ceramic tile be used on floors?

Both ceramic and porcelain floor tile can make a significant impact on your home, with outstanding visuals, impressive benefits, and a lifespan that means you may never have to replace these surfaces for as long as you own your home. Today, we will discuss whether you can use both applications in flooring your home, so follow along for more information.

Take time to consider your floor tile options

Porcelain tile is most often used in flooring applications because the material is the strongest, hardest, and most water-resistant material in the tile flooring line. In addition, it features a through-and-through color scheme that hides the effects of chips, cracks, and scratches for a better-looking floor longer.

However, ceramic tile can also be used in flooring when you specify that it's flooring tiles you're looking for and not wall or accent tiles. In addition, some ceramic is rated for floor use for more durability and lifespan and gorgeous décor matching visuals.
