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.

Cost-effectiveness durability and versatility are their other advantages. Usually ceramic tiles can be installed on all types of countertops like those made of plywood cement and lightweight aggregates. But the main thing is the application of the right backing under the tiles. The selection of sink type is also important. Usually sinks selected for ceramic tile countertops are tile in and self rimming types. The tile in type sink is generally set below the tile surface and the other type is set on the top of the tile. Typically the size of ceramic tile countertop ranges from one square inch to six square inches.

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.
