While the origins differ, porcelain tile and ceramic tile can be used in very much the same way. Both make excellent, permanent floors that are beautiful to be hold and easy to maintain. Both also can be used for countertops, backsplashes, and walls. Both are well suited for areas that tend to see a lot of moisture, like bathrooms, kitchens, and entryways. And both come in a wide array of colors and textures that make them a superb option for any room in the house.
If you are seeking a more unique look, tile flooring also gives you many options. Some lines of tile come with various sized squares that are laid in a pattern across your floor. Other options would be to place a border of one kind of tile around the edge of a room and then choose another style or color for the center. The center tiles can even be laid at a 45-degree angle to the border tiles, giving your room a very classy feel. Many lines of tile also have decorative edgings that can be used to complete your unique pattern. Your options are nearly limitless when it comes to these materials.
