What is ceramic tile?

This is a phrase for any material that's made of clay. While those 4 X 4 highly designed squares are certainly ceramics, that category also includes terracotta, porcelain, and subways, as well as mosaics. They all have different characteristics that make them behave differently in certain installations.
For example, terracottas can be either glazed or unglazed, but they are so porous they must also be sealed to make cleaning easier. Porcelain is completely non-porous and it is waterproof whether or not it's glazed. Porcelain's composition includes sand and glass, making it heavier and best for high traffic floors. It can also be used outdoors!

While the squares are thin, they are very tough and especially so when glazed, which is needed for waterproofing. They should be used indoors. Mosaics are small, but mighty, waterproof, stain-resistant, and strong.

Stone and wood-look tiles

Ceramic and porcelain can be made to look like anything. Quarried slabs can be pricey, but both ceramic squares and porcelain can be made to look like granite, quartz, marble, and more. It's the same with wood looks. Wood floors are trending right now, so you can have that look in any room, even ones with moisture where timber can't go.
