Whenever they are mentioned, ceramic & porcelain tile are always thought to be at home in the bathroom. It's true that this is a good placement for either material, as water resistance is excellent, but there's so much more to the materials than that. To know what they are best suited for, individually, it helps to know a bit more about them.
Porcelain tile is created using clay of the highest quality, and firing those tiles in extremely hot kilns. Some are even fired twice, to add denseness and make them even harder. Because of their construction, they have a through-body color that makes them excellent at hiding signs of everyday wear and tear. In fact, in some cases, your guests will never be able to see a chip or a crack in porcelain tile.
Ceramic is created using high quality clay, but also adds other high quality ingredients to this mixture. The final result is a through-body color that doesn't always stay the same, so they are covered with bright glazes in a wide assortment of colors and styles. Ceramic is an excellent medium to truly let your artistic flair shine through. Creating patterns or even intricate mosaics comes with ease when working with this material. Since tiles can be cut into any possible variety of shapes and sizes, there's no reason to limit your artistic flair.
