At FloorQuest, we take pride in designing rooms and spaces customers love. From bathrooms to kitchens, and everything in between, we help customers find the right looks, feels, and materials for their homes. Flooring is no exception. So when it comes to tiles, we have plenty of fantastic options.

Choose your Material

FloorQuest offers both ceramic and glazed porcelain tiles. While there are some similarities, we’re here to help you understand the difference.


Ceramic tiles are less dense than porcelain tiles, which makes them lighter in color and great in neutral environments. Some designers find them to be more flexible and versatile, making them great for more artistic and intricate uses. Some ceramic options are textured, with ripples and waves giving them the potential to add some visual flare to your favorite rooms. Overall, ceramic tiles are generally less expensive than porcelain options.

Ceramic tiles aren’t completely without disadvantages. Because they are more porous, ceramic tiles are more water-absorbent and not as durable as porcelain, especially in areas of high foot traffic. Regular sweeping and a mild mix of detergent and warm water will keep your ceramic tiles looking great.


Porcelain tiles are made with a finer mixture of clay, so they’re denser, harder, and less porous than ceramic tiles, making them more water-resistant. That also means they’re more durable and can withstand high amounts of foot traffic.

On the other hand, porcelain tiles are more difficult and more expensive to cut. Being the more expensive option isn’t without benefits, however. It has a longer lifespan and is more resistant to chipping. Spills, scrapes, and scratches are generally not issues for porcelain, and it can be cleaned with a vinegar and water solution.

Whether you choose ceramic or porcelain tiles, you can rest assured that either are fantastic choices. With dozens of design options and patterns, the experts at FloorQuest will help you find a solution for any room.
