Clay is used to making ceramic tiles, which are then fired. They are available in two varieties: glazed and unglazed. They are water-resistant, durable, and simple to clean, which is why they are commonly used in kitchen and bathroom floors and walls.
This type of ceramic tile is more dense and moisture-resistant, making it ideal for high-moisture areas such as bathrooms. These tiles are available in unglazed, matte, or glazed finishes.
Quarry tile is a type of unglazed ceramic tile. It is inexpensive and long-lasting, making it a natural choice for industrial, commercial, and residential tile applications. It is also less prone to scratches and chips. To avoid weather-related problems in colder climates, freeze-resistant grades of quarry tile are used.
Mosaic tiles are made of porcelain or a clay-based material. They are typically less than six square inches in size and come in various shapes such as square, rectangle, octagon, and so on. Mosaic tiles are typically used in smaller areas, such as a bathroom or kitchen backsplash or small countertops.
As the name implies, Paver tiles are primarily used in paved outdoor areas. They are made of pressed clay or concrete and can be used for outdoor walkways, floors, pool decking, pool linings, and patios. They can withstand heavy traffic and are resistant to wear.
