If it's made of clay, and even if it includes other substances like sand and glass, it's considered ceramic. That consists of a heavier, more robust, and ideal porcelain for heavily trafficked floors in busy rooms. It's through-body, meaning that color goes all the way through the entire material and is waterproof whether or not it's glazed. Porcelain can also be used outdoors on a patio, deck floors, and poolside. This large-format tile comes in countless colors and patterns and can be made to look like anything, including wood, stone, fabric, and leather. It's appropriate for floors, walls, and shower/tub surrounds.
Other ceramics include the 4 X 4 highly designed squares, appropriate for moderately heavy foot trafficked floors, walls, backsplashes, and counters. Mosaics are tiny, often glass-coated pieces that are currently trending in bathrooms; terracotta bricks are durable and can be used indoors and out; subway tiles can be on an indoor, low-traffic floor. In the form of a band, listellos are border tiles that add luxury and visual interest to any installation.
