For plywood subfloors be sure that the wood is at least 1 and 1/8 inches thick and is supported by an equally strong underlayment. Otherwise your ceramic tiles will dislodge easily or worse break and need replacing. Concrete floors are the most ideal subfloor surface to work with. But before you can start installing ceramic tile flooring over it it must be cleaned thoroughly. For dust and other debris sweep and then mop your concrete subfloor surface and allow it to dry completely. Smooth concrete surfaces must be rough sanded just like vinyl floors to allow the tiling mortar some grip.

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.

A large frog leaping out from your shower wall at body height is probably not a good idea. Obviously porous tiles are not good for wet areas. So long as the tile is vitreous - has been fired to maturity such that the crystalline structure is unified - the tile or glaze is OK however the joints between the tiles will need to be sealed. Again the best bet here is a high fired stoneware tile with a dependable glaze. Flooring presents other challenges and opportunities. Clearly floor tiles must be durable so high fire stoneware is the best choice. Any kind of relief is not advised as uneven surfaces can be difficult to walk on especially for the aged.
