Ceramic vs. Porcelain Wall Tiles – What’s the Difference?
For many people ‘ceramic’ and ‘porcelain’ will be two interchangeable words they often associate with tiles, however, if you’re thinking about tiling a wall in your home you should know the difference.
The main difference between the two is that ceramic tiles are more porous than porcelain tiles, meaning they’ll absorb slightly more water. This makes porcelain wall tiles great for wet rooms and areas that experience higher levels of moisture while ceramic wall tiles are generally great for all areas of the home. Ceramic tiles are also softer and less dense than porcelain tiles making them less hard-wearing and slightly more prone to potential cracking.
When it comes to which tiles are best for you, it all depends on which wall you’re planning to tile. If you’re looking for wall tiles for high traffic areas of the house you may want to consider porcelain wall tiles for their superior strength, but if you’re looking for wall tiles for your general home interior you might consider ceramic tiles as they’re often available in a wider range of designs and styles.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
When purchasing wall tiles for your home, it’s a good rule of thumb to buy at least an extra 10% than you think is required.
Measure both the length and height of your wall in order to find the complete size of your wall (E.G. 3.5M X 4.2M = 14.7M²) and then measure any windows and doors on the wall (1.1M x 1.1M = 1.21M²) to remove from your total size in order to find your end wall size (14.7M² – 1.21M² = 13.49M²). Finally add 10% for an breakage or accidents (13.49M² X 1.1 = 14.8M²)
There are two ways of cutting tiles depending on the tools you have available. You can cut your tiles by scoring along with your tile and snapping it gently by hand (This works best for thinner tiles) or by using power tools and essentially doing the same thing using a tile cutting machine, again score your tile and use your tile saw to cut the tile.
This is dependant on the type of wall tile you have – ceramic and porcelain tiles have different cleaning requirements than marble or natural stone tiles. Avoid harsh chemicals and abrasive cloths, wipe your tiles down using hot soapy water. If you have textured tiles, try using an old toothbrush dipped in hot soapy water.
All tiles are somewhat water-resistant, it just depends on the type of tile you’re using. Porcelain tiles should be used in rooms that are higher in moisture as they’re more water-resistant than ceramic tiles due to the way in which they’re manufactured.
