The main difference between these two is how they are made. Both utilize a clay mixture, but porcelain uses a more refined clay. Both are fired in a kiln, with porcelain fired at a higher temperature than ceramic.This makes it more durable and denser.
Both are used in floors and walls within your home, but porcelain would be a better choice for rooms that endure heavy traffic. This could be kitchen floors or hallways. The porcelain also has a higher resistance against scratching and chipping.
