Ceramic and porcelain tiles may seem similar, but there are a number of differences between them. For instance, a porcelain tile is much denser and also less absorbent than a ceramic tile. Porcelain is also made from much finer material than ceramic and is thus more resistant to heavy impact. This comparison of porcelain versus ceramic tile is important in making your decision on the porcelain tile flooring designs to use.
Manufacture of ceramic granite - is a high-tech process. A porcelain tile is formed from fine porcelain clay which is heated under very high temperatures to make the tile strong. Apart from being strong porcelain tile is durable, water and stain resistant.
There are many porcelain flooring designs such as the basket weave, the grid, the diamond, the brickwork and more. You could also create a natural looking porcelain design for your floor given that porcelain can mimic many other natural surfaces

Porcelain floors are easy to clean. However, cleaning them depends on the surface texture of the porcelain floor tiles in question. When cleaning unpolished porcelain tiles, clear the dirt by sweeping them first then proceed to use a mop with a mixture of hot water and a non bleaching cleaning solution. Scrub the tiles with a bristled brush, leave for ten minutes then wipe with a rag and clean with clean water and a mop.
When cleaning polished porcelain tile floor follow the same instructions but instead of sweeping with a broom use a dust mop. For a textured porcelain floor, change directions while scrubbing the floor to get under the bumps and ripples. There are polishing solutions that can be purchased in stores but you must always read and follow the instructions given.
