The History of Ceramic Tiles. Essentially made of clay, ceramic floor tiles date as far back as prehistoric times. Though extremely rudimentary, even back then they were being decorated in pigment and carved to produce a pleasing result. Eventually, it was discovered that firing the clay at very high heat made it much stronger and also gave it a degree of water resistance and resilience. Cultures all over the world used variations of the tile to decorate temples, homes and various structures, from ancient Greece and Rome to Asian countries. Glazed tiles were then initiated by the Persians and who created mosaics and interesting graduations in colour using the smaller tile pieces. In modern times, manufacturers of the product typically use the pressed-dust mode of production. But no matter the method, all ceramic tiles are fired to increase durability. In the end, what dictates the price of a ceramic tile is the quality of the clay used, how many times it has been fired and at what heat.
The Pros of Ceramic Floor Tiles in the Home. One of the biggest advantages of using ceramic tiles in flooring is that the range and scope of design, pattern, colour, style and overall aesthetic is virtually unlimited. Unique and inspired designs can be easily created allowing for individual tastes to be easily catered for. The tiles also last a considerable amount of time and should not need replacement in a lifetime. Ceramic tiles are also easy to clean and are therefore low maintenance compared to other materials. The durability of the ceramic tile is also a plus, as it can take a high degree of traffic without becoming worn.
