Ceramic tile is a type of tile that is commonly crafted from red or white clay and utilized in various areas of the home. It is produced through firing clay in a kiln, and although it is sometimes used interchangeably with porcelain tile, they differ in terms of density and absorption rate. While ceramic tile is less dense and more absorbent than porcelain, it remains a popular choice for walls, counter-tops, and flooring. To improve durability and prevent staining, ceramic tile is coated with a glaze that also provides color and pattern options. Numerous ceramic tile designs and sizes are available to suit various preferences and needs.
