Both ceramic and porcelain tiles are common wall tiles; however, they differ significantly in terms of their water absorption rate. The water absorption rate of ceramic tiles can vary between 0.5% and 6%, while porcelain tiles are less than 0.5%. As such, porcelain wall tiles are much better suited for wet areas such as bathrooms and particularly the shower than ceramic tiles.

If water absorption isn’t an issue and you’re looking for a tile to decorate your wall or splashback, consider a feature tile or mosaic over a standard wall tile. Both come in an assortment of shapes, styles, and designs to complement all design styles and colour palettes.
