Bathroom – Bathrooms are the most expected place, where people use tiles. Ceramic tiles are best for watery areas, as bathrooms, where water is overly used and spilled. It can be installed for the flooring and walls, both. It is the floor and walls near the bathing area that face hundreds or thousands of water droplets every day. Ceramic tiles show a great water resistant characteristic, and obviate the chances of water leakage due to excess use of water. They provide a shield to walls and floors of bathrooms against water and moisture. Kitchens – Kitchens are the second room in houses, where water is largely used. Considering the qualities of ceramic tiles, a lot of people use them for the flooring of their kitchen. Ceramic backsplashes, above sinks, are also quite popular these days.
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.
