Porcelain: Great for busy, high traffic rooms

This ceramic is composed of a non-porous clay with sand and glass and fired at higher temperatures than most, resulting in a heavier, more dense tile that can be used indoors or out (even withstanding freeze/thaw cycles). Porcelain is excellent for kitchen, bath, deck, patio, or poolside floors and is also stylish enough for walls and tub/shower surrounds.

The 4 X 4 squares

These are the highly designed tile flooring pieces we see on indoor, moderately foot trafficked floors and on walls, backsplashes, countertops, and more. They are thinner, highly durable, and usually glazed; this coating gives it additional style and shine and gives it the tough outer shell, making it waterproof and almost impossible to crack. Don't let the size fool you because mosaics (sometimes as small as 1 X 1) are durable and mold and mildew resistant. Right now, these often glass-coated, decorative ceramic tiles are trending hot for bathroom floors. This is because not only of the style but the many grout lines required by small tiles, which enhance traction and a non-slippery surface. Terracotta bricks are making a massive comeback for indoor use, mainly because their beautiful reddish-brown color works so well with another trend: rustic decor. In addition, terracottas are ultra-durable and can stand up to any amount of wear. They can be absorbent, however, so discuss sealing, which will make cleaning a lot easier. Listellos are bands of border tiles that can add sophistication and even more visual interest to any project. Also, keep in mind that there are many non-ceramic tiles, including concrete, metal, natural stone, etc. Many people mix and match them with ceramics to create a unique design.
