Durable and easy to clean, this gives a room a dazzling, upscale look. It?s available in a wide?array of sizes, shapes, textures, and colors and you can mix and match them to create your?design.

Using various shapes, sizes, and colors also allows you to create different price points; for?example, if budget is an issue, choose a plainer tile for the larger square footage in the?installation, with a few highly-designed pieces to accent and highlight the flooring.

You can get subway tiles, which are available in decorative colors including cobalt blue and?grassy green. Mosaics come separately or in stripes. Glass tiles look like little jewels and are?non-porous and mold-resistant.

Repeat colors in backsplashes and countertops and create a brilliant focal point or accent wall.

Ceramic tile does need to be glazed to be waterproof and, although it?s a little thinner than?porcelain, it can be perfectly suitable for flooring in preferably lower traffic areas.

What about porcelain?
This is a type of ceramic, but it is made not only of clay but also of sand and sometimes even?glass. It makes it denser and better able to stand up to heavy foot traffic areas, such as the?kitchen, bathroom or hallway.

Glazed or unglazed, porcelain tile is 100% waterproof and is a flooring that can be used for?installation indoors or out.

Large format, milky white, it has a translucent quality and can be made to look like anything,?including marble or travertine or other stones. Since large format also means fewer seams, it is?especially appropriate for the marble bathroom installations that are trending so much right now,?and are not expected to go out of style anytime soon.
