Is ceramic a good tile flooring choice?

Tile has been a popular building material for centuries. Just walk through any European city, and you'll see it on the floors and walls of palaces and castles.

Today, tile flooring is one of the most popular choices among homeowners. This is because it's durable and stain resistant. It also won't harbor bacteria or odors and has superior temperature transference properties, meaning it can make you feel chilly or hot.

What are the different types of tiles?

Remember, though, that they all have different strength and absorption levels. This determines how and where tile can be used.

The Porcelain and Enamel Institute set up a zero to 5 rating system. Strength increases with category. For example, zero to two is excellent for walls and low-traffic areas, while three is suitable for most residential uses. 

Class 4 includes porcelain tile, a heavier and dense ceramic type. Anything above is meant for commercial and institutional spaces.
