Glazed ceramic and porcelain tiles are great choices for bathrooms, kitchens, foyers, sun rooms and great rooms. Its diversity in color and style, especially when creating mosaic patterns, makes it a popular choice. Porcelain is a ceramic tile made of very densely compacted molecules and is more resistant to wear and tear then more conventional ceramic tile, making it suitable for commercial, public, and outdoor applications. Having a rate of only .5% moisture absorption it is classified as impervious to water absorption and is frost-proof. Furthermore, the dense surface of porcelain has made polishing a viable alternative to a glazed surface. Porcelain tile can be fired, then a polish cut into the surface, creating a shine without a glaze.
Natural Stone Floor Tiling Design.
Slate and marble tiles are often used for interior and exterior flooring, stairs, walkways and wall cladding. As the stone is porous, chemical sealants are often used to improve durability and appearance, increase stain resistance, reduce efflorescence, and increase or reduce surface smoothness. Slate and marble flooring can be slippery when used in external locations subject to rain.
Wall Tile use for floor tile applications.
Most wall tile are glazed with a semi-gloss or matte surface and are normally less durable than tile designed specifically for flooring. The glazed surface has a very low slip resistance and becomes slippery when wet. Glazed wall tile are more suitable for wall or counter top applications rather than floor tiling applications.
