Difference Between Porcelain, Ceramic, and Glazed Ceramic Tiles

14 years ago

We are going to replace our patio and arbor with a four-season room. As we want this room to feel as open and carefree as possible (like the old brick patio and arbor being removed), I want flooring that will be tough.

We plan to use tile over concrete slab. Are there differences in durability between porcelain, ceramic, and glazed ceramic tiles or other things to be considered? Also, do I need to be worried about some tile surfaces being more slippery than others in case something is spilled or someone comes in with damp shoes? Lastly, is there a particular type of grout sealer that is preferred? I appreciate your thoughts and advice, especially if you have such a room.
