There is a myth about porcelain tile. All porcelain tile is not 'through' colored tile. Only unglazed porcelain tile is through-colored. Glazed porcelain will show a different color beneath the top layer If chipped. Unglazed porcelain is the same through the tile's thickness. The difference is an important consideration when selecting tile right for a space in your home. Porcelain tile is a form of ceramic tile. It is made from clay that is much finer than tile labeled 'ceramic.' It contains feldspar, quartz, and kaolin minerals. Porcelain tile is spray covered and dry pressed, to form a material that is fired at a temperature much higher than ceramic tile.
