Such a cermic tile would not be suitable for certain applications. For example if you intend to use the tile for a backsplash counter top or tabletop you will need a very durable tile that will hold up to frequent cleaning and in the case of a countertop or tabletop some hard use too. Stoneware clays are the most suitable for this sort of use. Stoneware is normally fired to about cone 6 (around 2200 degrees F) and is very strong. But in your inquiry dont stop with what kind of clay the tiles are made from. Glazes vary enormously and even so-called food-safe glazes can leach out chemicals stain and lose their color.

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.

Most tiles are exposed to dust and they will fade over time if they are not cleaned regularly especially those with painted images or designs. It is important to have clean ceramic tile because it keeps the family healthy and happy. In the end it also saves on money and time since well-groomed tiles will last longer and will need to be replaced less frequently saving on cost labor and annoyance. A ceramic tile can be cleaned with a sponge and detergent. Ceramic tiles have a smooth surface which makes them easy to clean. Day-to-day cleaning can involve a vacuum since light upkeep throughout the week will result in consistently clean ceramic tile.
