Ceramic tiles are made of clay and a few other components, providing it with a great water and stain resistance. They have an eye-catching shine, which wins the heart of onlookers. These are man made tiles, and have gained a huge popularity over past couple of decades. The use of these tiles has now expanded to floors, exteriors and outdoors. However, a number of people still visualize a bathroom, adorned with beautiful wall tiles with floral print, whenever the word 'tiles' is pronounced.
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.
