While all kinds are tough, one especially stands out: porcelain, a type of ceramic, made of clay with sand and glass. As a result, it's heavier, denser, and great for high traffic floors. It's also waterproof and frost resistant, so feel free to use it outside. Porcelain is a large format piece, available in many colors and patterns and can be made to look like anything, from wood to marble.
Ceramics are thinner, but also tough. They are highly decorative and best used indoors on lower traffic floors. They are often used to create accent walls or backsplashes. When glazed, they are waterproof.
