Even a glaze said to be food-safe often is not. John Hesselberth and Ron Roy in their book Mastering Cone 6 Glazes demonstrate this by placing a lemon wedge on a food-safe glazed piece of ceramics. Within hours the glaze is discolored from leaching out of the chemicals. Unfortunately the food-safeness of a glazed or handpainted ceramic tile is difficult to determine unless you can speak with the maker because of the fact that many glazes said to be food-safe are not. Which is one of the great advantages of handmade tiles - the ceramic artist can tell you if it is food-safe.

During installation tiles should be placed so that there are no gaps left between the individual tiles. Otherwise the tile can leak and seepage will occur in the spaces left behind. Seepage is a common problem in many households and the tiles are also harder to clean as dirt and dust will build up in the cracks and cannot be reached with a vacuum or sponge. Quickly clean ceramic tile will become a hopeless dream. Clean ceramic tile is also safer tile. Not only does cleaning help to extend the life and quality of tiles it can help to extend the life of the family.

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.
