Not all tiles are created equal and the differences can determine if your ceramic tiles will hold up to the use you are putting them. For example low fire tiles or tiles that have only been through a bisque firing are generally less expensive but not nearly as durable as high fired tiles. Even if the tile has been glazed it may still have only gone through one firing and very possibly only a low firing so the fact of it being glossy and colorful is no indication that the tile has the durability of a high-fired tile. Greenware - ceramics that has dried but not been fired can be glazed with a low fire glaze and fired to a comparatively low temperature.

An additional consideration with flooring tiles is slickness. A glossy glaze on a floor is not recommended. A heavily textured glaze or a matte glaze is best. Outdoor use in cold climates demands high fired tiles and dependable glazes especially if on horizontal surfaces. Low fire and even porous tiles can be used outdoors in cold climates if on or in a vertical surface. But you are still better off with a frost proof tile in cold climates. Finally there is the issue of a ceramic tile being food-safe. Many decorative ceramic art tiles are used as serving trays for a variety of hot and cold foods and it is important that these not leach out chemicals.

During installation tiles should be placed so that there are no gaps left between the individual tiles. Otherwise the tile can leak and seepage will occur in the spaces left behind. Seepage is a common problem in many households and the tiles are also harder to clean as dirt and dust will build up in the cracks and cannot be reached with a vacuum or sponge. Quickly clean ceramic tile will become a hopeless dream. Clean ceramic tile is also safer tile. Not only does cleaning help to extend the life and quality of tiles it can help to extend the life of the family.
