What exactly are vitrified tiles and porcelain tiles and how are they really distinct from “ceramic” tiles?
Tile terms may be baffling. Ceramic tiles can be divided into two categories, porcelain and non-porcelain. It is the non-porcelain type which are generally considered to be ceramic tiles, as against porcelain tiles.

Vitrified tiles are a man-made item exceptionally durable and squeezed with low water absorption. Colours, style and finish will differ according to brand and may be glazed and unglazed tiles with porcelain finish. Vitrified indicates glass has formed within the ceramic and truthfully all ceramics are vitrified to some degree. “Fully Vitrified” or porcelain tiles possess a low water absorption rate, are water-resistant without the need to have a glaze finish.
