Porcelain is made of a fine, non-porous clay called Kaolin and is fired at higher temperatures. This makes it harder than granite, heavier, and appropriate for floors in busy rooms or anywhere you need an aesthetic, high functioning surface. It is waterproof, whether or not it's glazed, and can stand up to weather so it's fine for deck and patio floors or poolside.
A large format tile, porcelain comes in a large color palette, an almost unlimited number of patterns and can be made to look like anything, including stone, fabric, and leather. Porcelain is a "through body" tile, meaning that the color is baked right into the tile, making it less noticeable if a chip does occur. Non-through body chips usually display as white or beige.
