Difference between Ceramic, Vitrified, Concrete, and Cement Tiles?
Choosing the right wall and floor tile! What is the difference between Ceramic, Vitrified, Concrete, and Cement Tiles?
I’m often asked this question by first-time cement tile buyers: which amongst the ceramic or vitrified and concrete or cement is better?My answer is that they are all unique and have different characteristics. The best way to go about this process is that when you're remodelling the space, play with all that is available. It’s always a good idea to explore and test out all your options!
Cement Tile - Slip-Proof and Highly Durable.One of the strongest qualities about cement tiles, and something that I love is that they are slip-proof and highly durable, which makes them a strong candidate for high-traffic areas. However, something worth noting is that cement tiles are heavier and thicker than ceramic or vitrified tiles. You should also keep the lead time in mind, typically bespoke cement tiles have a lead time of 8-10 weeks.
So if you are someone who wants their choices to be unique and doesn’t want to walk into people’s homes and find similar tiles as your tiles then your go-to choice is “Cement Tile”.
