What is Ceramic Tile?

Ceramic tile is a type of tile that is typically made from red or white clay. Ceramic tile can be used in several areas throughout the house.

Ceramic tile is made of clay that has been fired in a kiln. Ceramic tile is similar to porcelain tile, and while some companies use the terms interchangeably, they are actually very different. Ceramic tile is not as dense and has a higher absorption rate. This means that it is not frost-proof, and it may chip or damage more easily than porcelain tile. Despite these differences, ceramic tile is a very popular choice for floors, counter-tops and walls. The tile is coated with a special glaze that protects and seals it. This keeps the tile from absorbing stains while improving the durability of each piece. The glaze is also what gives ceramic tile its color and pattern. Several ceramic tile designs and sizes are available.
