More than half of the tile sold in the US is glazed since glazed tile is easy to install and fix and is great for use in bathrooms and kitchens. We carry an endless variety of tiles for your home. You can select from a smooth glaze all the way up to a rough one. We recommend selecting a tile with a coefficient of friction rating higher than 60 dry or wet. Sometimes the coefficient of friction rating is referred to as the COF.

On the other hand, ceramic is one of the densest and most durable tiles available for purchase today. You cannot easily scratch or chip porcelain tiles. Pretty much the only downfall to porcelain tiles is that it can be slippery even when it is not wet. It is also a bit more expensive ranging anywhere from $1 to $2 more for each square foot than say ceramic tile. Compressed clay dust is fired at super hot temperatures in order to create a ceramic tile.

There are a variety of tile sizes that you can choose from when buying tile for your home. Smaller requires more grout and can be more of a hassle to maintain and clean. If you have a smaller sized bathroom, you can use a larger tile size to create the illusion of more space. Be sure not to select a slippery texture for any areas in your home that may become wet. When selecting tiles for a backdrop, you can choose less dense tiles and not have to worry about texture. If you want a large selection of color and style choices, glazed wall tiles will give you the most options. Glazed tiles are manufactured from rough to highly polished. When shooting for a really unique design in your home, you may want to consider alternating patterns and different color variations. Hand carved tiles are the best option for a truly luxurious look and feel to your home.
