Porcelain is a type of ceramic made from nonporous clay, with sand and glass added. As a result, it is robust, waterproof, and can be used indoors or out on heavily trafficked floors, such as the kitchen or bath. It stands up to any weather condition and is often installed on patio and deck floors or pool floors.
Porcelain makes a stunning statement on floors, walls, or tub and shower surround. It has an almost unlimited number of bright colors and patterns and can be made to look like anything, including wood, stone, fabric, and leather. It's often the best tile for stone looks, as the larger format and fewer seams give it a more continuous look like that of quarried marble, granite, slate, etc.
Other ceramics for the floor include the highly designed, 4 X 4 squares, appropriate for moderate traffic, and the tiny but durable, glass coated and decorative mosaics now trending for bathroom floors. Terracotta bricks are ultra-durable and can be used indoors or out. Listello (border) tiles make great accents, while subways should only be indoors on low traffic floors.
