Tile Types - Ceramic Tile
Ceramic tiles are typically made from red or white fired clay in a kiln. They are usually finished with a durable glaze which helps to carry the color and pattern of the tile itself.
Suitable for both wall and floor applications, ceramic tile is easier to cut than porcelain.
Ceramic tile is suitable for light to moderate traffic and has a high water absorption rate which makes it less resistant to frost. One important characteristic to note is that ceramic tile is more prone to chipping and wear than porcelain tiles.
