Ceramic tiles are made from a mixture of clay and natural minerals, which go through a kiln-firing process at extremely high temperatures. Ceramic tiles are used both for floor and wall surfaces, in any area of the home, and work especially well in bathrooms.
Ceramic tiles have one of the longest life cycles of any flooring products on the market today. They offer a very good scratch and dent resistance compared to other flooring types, although not quite as good as porcelain. They can be easily cleaned with a damp mop. No sealing or waxing is needed — in fact, ceramic tiles require virtually no maintenance compared to natural stone or wood floors.
