Manufacturing technology in porcelain and ceramics is improving all the time, particularly with respect to producing larger sizes and effects such as wood and natural stone. But often what people think are ceramic tiles are actually porcelain tiles, especially those in very large sizes. More and more porcelain tiles are being manufactured because one of the main differences between ceramic and porcelain tiles is that porcelain is stronger and more stable when fired allowing for a more consistent product especially in the larger sizes. But whatever type, size, colour or pattern you select you can be sure that good quality tiles will enhance your home by creating practical, yet beautiful contemporary spaces.
Porcelain tiles are fired at high temperatures creating a hardwearing tile that is suitable for many different purposes. Tiles can be left in their unglazed state after firing giving usually a very natural finish or they can be glazed and digitally printed which gives unlimited design opportunities. Ceramic tiles also have these design possibilities but are generally used for the smaller sizes. Because of the enormous range of colours and patterns that can be manufactured in either porcelain or ceramic there will be a tile to suit your needs be it contemporary or traditional.
