The kind of ornamentation of the ceramic tile is important too. For a ceramic countertop or tabletop, the tiles should be flat. For a backsplash the tiles can have low relief but high relief will be difficult to clean and is not generally advised. Fireplaces, murals, mosaics and facades can be either flat, have low relief or high relief and low fire glazes are OK in these applications. Be careful though with areas that will get much use, such as around a fireplace where logs will be placed or fireplace tools will be used. Low fire tiles and glazes can crack or chip much more easily than stoneware and high fire glazes. Also, if it is an area that will require frequent cleaning, high relief may prove troublesome.
A ceramic tile can be cleaned with a sponge and detergent. Ceramic tiles have a smooth surface which makes them easy to clean. Day-to-day cleaning can involve a vacuum, since light upkeep throughout the week will result in consistently clean ceramic tile. During installation, tiles should be placed so that there are no gaps left between the individual tiles. Otherwise, the tile can leak, and seepage will occur in the spaces left behind. Seepage is a common problem in many households, and the tiles are also harder to clean, as dirt and dust will build up in the cracks and cannot be reached with a vacuum or sponge. Quickly, clean ceramic tile will become a hopeless dream.
