Manufacturers of ceramic tile specialize in what is traditionally considered ceramic (from the Greek word ‘keramos’ meaning pottery) tile.
Made from clay, fired in a kiln and either glazed with color, design, and hardened finishes or unglazed, ceramic tile is versatile, environmentally friendly, and glazed versions are fire, water and germ resistant.
The trusted names behind ceramic tile have developed a wide range of tile options beyond traditional ceramics including porcelain, stone, glass, metal and wood varieties.
Tile usually outlasts its original owners or styles change well before the tile wears out. Studies show that tile can hold up 25 years or longer, which is why it’s so important to invest in proper installation. To find out more about ProSand professional installation, start here.
Most glazed or finished tiles are also waterproof, making them the perfect option for bathrooms and kitchens.
Plus, tile is easy to clean, resists dirt and stains and does not harbor dust mites, mold or bacteria.
But if you’re using them on your floor, be sure they have enough texture and strength that they’re safe to walk on.
