Ceramic tile is used to decorate walls and floors fireplaces and showers. It is manufactured with naturally-available products including clay and quartz sand. Clay has the property of restricting water flow and is used in the construction of dams bridges and canals. Ceramic is also used in the preparation of engineering materials such as transistors in electronic devices. There are many varieties of ceramic tiles and they differ in size shape design pattern and make and some are even produced specifically for certain rooms including the bathroom the kitchen and the living room.

An additional consideration with flooring tiles is slickness. A glossy glaze on a floor is not recommended. A heavily textured glaze or a matte glaze is best. Outdoor use in cold climates demands high fired tiles and dependable glazes especially if on horizontal surfaces. Low fire and even porous tiles can be used outdoors in cold climates if on or in a vertical surface. But you are still better off with a frost proof tile in cold climates. Finally there is the issue of a ceramic tile being food-safe. Many decorative ceramic art tiles are used as serving trays for a variety of hot and cold foods and it is important that these not leach out chemicals.

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.
