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.

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.

An important thing to remember is to use ceramic tiles with a slightly rough textured surface when tiling the bathroom. This is so you wont encounter accidents on a floor thats always wet. Smooth glazed ceramic tiles especially are ideal for kitchen or back porch flooring. But you shouldnt use them bathroom floors as they can be treacherous when wet. Its also important to get the right equipment and tools for the project. You can buy most of the tools and materials youll need at you neighborhood hardware store or home center. For equipment that might over your budget like tile cutters try asking your local home center or tool rental yard if they have the tools you need for rental.
