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.

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.

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.
