That makes porcelain a type of ceramic; it is heavier, denser, and best for busy rooms with heavy foot traffic, such as the bath. Porcelain is also composed of a non-porous clay called Kaolin, so it stands up to any weather outdoors.

They, like all ceramics, can be used on walls and shower and tub surrounds.

Terracotta tiles are durable, can withstand heavy traffic, and are non-porous when sealed. Mosaics are tiny; glass-coated ceramics often used as flooring accents. Although subway tiles can be used on floors, they are best for low-traffic areas.
