There are many different types of tiles on the market today. Most people want the best possible type of tile floor they can afford and they also want it to look beautiful and last for many years. There are also cleaning and maintenance issues that must be considered when choosing tile flooring. Many people desire the natural beauty of stone and are willing to deal with the increased cleaning and maintenance issues that come with stone. Other people like the uniform look of ceramic and porcelain and they do not want to deal with some of the hassles involved with stone tile floors. For the easiest to clean and maintain floors ceramic and porcelain tiles seem to make the most sense.
Ceramic tile. Now there's a term for you. When hearing or reading it, most people think of the highly glazed ”bathroom” tiles of years gone by or of decorative tiles which are used to dress up otherwise plain tile installations. After all, aren't there many different kinds of clay tiles? Aren't ceramic tiles just a small part of the field? Actually, no. The term ”ceramic tile” covers almost every clay product produced and used within the tile industry. In addition to four-and-a-quarter-inch bathroom tiles and colorful ”decos,” there are ”monocottura” or single-fired floor tiles, 1-inch and 2-inch ”mosaic” tiles mounted on sheets, double-, triple-, and even quadruple-fired tiles decorated in dozens of different ways, and large format porcelain tiles which are used on floors and walls. It is this last category of tiles that we will concern ourselves with here. There is a great deal of confusion concerning the status of porcelain tiles, most of it generated within the tile industry itself.
