We are redoing our kitchen and our designer wants us to use quartzite tile instead of porcelain. The designer says they are the same but I have my doubts. Any help would be appreciated.
According to this article I would go with the quartz.
Are the quartzite tiles more expensive (they generally are)?
I have had no problems installing ceramic tiles in kitchen and bathroom floors. We seal the grout but have not had to seal the porcelain. I have had red wine spill and cleaned up without staining. I know the quartzite is a little different to install. The polymer in the mix makes the material cut up a little tricky (it actually can melt from the heat of a blade). Still need to use a wet saw with sharp blade.
Up to you and designer, but perhaps the color scheme works out better with quartzite.
