Ceramic tiles are made from natural clay that is mixed with water and molded. Creators apply a glaze to the tile to help protect it from water and scratches, then fire the clay in a kiln to harden it. Ceramic tiles can come in a wide variety of colors and sizes, but they must always be glazed for protection.

Vitrified tiles are very similar to ceramic tiles, but are made with slightly different elements. The clay is mixed with quartz and feldspar before it is heated in the kiln. These extra ingredients melt, creating a glass element inside the tile. This glass component makes the vitrified files very hard and resistant to any type of absorption.

Ceramic tile has become the common term given to most tiles that are made from clay products. Ceramics include porcelain and 'gres' tiles also. Vitrified tiles are 'glass-like' and they are hard and frost proof.

here is more than one type of ceramic tile. Homeowners typically choose ceramic tile because it is more affordable than stone, while offering more color options and similar durability. However, both porcelain and vitrified tiles are also types of ceramic that can be used for a wider variety of applications. Vitrified tiles are the most unique, since alternative ingredients are used to make them.

Thanks for sharing the good info however these tiles need the proper cleaning and maintenance too. By using the spray of baking soda, white vinegar and water ingredients and Scrub with a solution of one part liquid chlorine bleach to five parts water can be helpful for tiles cleaning.
