How many types of ceramic tiles are there?

Ceramic tiles come in different types, including glazed ceramic, porcelain, terracotta, quarry, mosaic, and cement. Glazed ceramic tiles have a hard and durable surface due to their glass-like coating. Porcelain tiles are moisture- and wear-resistant. Terracotta tiles have warm, earthy tones, while quarry tiles are unglazed and durable. Mosaic tiles are small and used for creating decorative patterns or designs. Cement tiles are a mixture of cement, sand, and pigment and are known for their durability and unique patterns. Each type of ceramic tile offers various looks and benefits for different applications.

What is the difference between porcelain and ceramic tiles?

Porcelain clay is denser (tinier particles) than ceramic, so it fires harder. It will stand up to abuse better than ceramic, and is generally approved for outdoor installations with freeze/thaw cycles, where ceramic cannot withstand them. Porcelain is generally more expensive than ceramic. That doesn't mean ceramic shouldn't be used - just be wary of installing it in rooms where billiard balls, fireplace logs, or iron frying pans will be bouncing off of it. In my opinion, ceramic is fine for bathrooms where the hardest things to hit it will be plastic hair dryers or shampoo bottles, but in other areas I'd use porcelain. I hate replacing broken tiles.

Is tile a non porous surface?

It depends on what the tile is made of. Some stone tiles need to be treated and sealed to be non porous. Ceramic or porcelain tiles will be non porous. You can find out these things when you select a tile and ask how to care for it. Also, as a rule of thumb most tiles that are used for household purposes (esp. showers, bathrooms, kitchens, etc) will be treated to make them nonporous even if the material they're made of themselves are porous
