Porcelain tile is a type of ceramic tile. The range of colors, sizes, shapes, finishes, and textures makes porcelain an attractive flooring choice. Some porcelain designs closely mimic natural stone like marble, slate, and travertine. Other designs imitate wood grains. Porcelain is more dense and heavy than ceramic, and it's inherently impervious to water. Like ceramic, it can be used on countertops to match a kitchen floor because it has good resistance to heat. This floor covering can be used outdoors in regions with mild climates. Porcelain is more brittle than ceramic, and therefore, an installation by an experienced tile-setter is best. Tile is attached to the subfloor with adhesive, and grout is used to bond the tile together.
