Many manufactured tiles are poorly made and will not hold up to the uses they are marketed for. Of course there are many quite excellent manufactured tiles too so you need to inquire to be sure. That information however may or not be readily available. The kind of ornamentation of the ceramic tile is important too. For a ceramic countertop or tabletop the tiles should be flat. For a backsplash the tiles can have low relief but high relief will be difficult to clean and is not generally advised. Fireplaces murals mosaics and facades can be either flat have low relief or high relief and low fire glazes are OK in these applications.

Be careful though with areas that will get much use such as around a fireplace where logs will be placed or fireplace tools will be used. Low fire tiles and glazes can crack or chip much more easily than stoneware and high fire glazes. Also if it is an area that will require frequent cleaning high relief may prove troublesome. For ceramic walls in dry areas not subject to much physical contact most any type of tile and glaze is adequate. For wet areas flat tiles low relief tiles or even high relief tiles can be used so long as they are not in a hazardous place that a body can inadvertently come into contact with them.

Knowing the kind of subfloor youll be installing ceramic tile flooring over is important. There are three main types of subfloors you might encounter: Vinyl plywood and concrete floors. Installing ceramic tile flooring directly to your vinyl or linoleum subfloor surfaces is greatly discouraged. One it may contain asbestos fibers; and two vinyl flooring is not a solid as good ol concrete flooring. When installing ceramic tile on vinyl experts would recommend rough-sanding or scarifying the vinyl floor surface first so your tiling mortar has good grip to set on.
