There are many options of porcelain and ceramic tile from which to choose. Surface patterning on tiles can include wood, stone, metal, and even fabric, while rectified tile has gone through a manufacturing process to assure each tile is exactly the same size and shape, standard tiles may have a more natural or rustic feel.
Mosaic tile is cut and carved into small pieces placed close together for a dramatic effect. Rectangular tiles can vary from subway tile for your bathroom to tiles that resemble wood flooring but with less upkeep. Square tiles are more commonly used in entranceways and sunrooms, or on backsplashes.
Go outside or stay indoors
The primary difference between indoor and outdoor tiles is the amount of water that they can bear without warping or cracking. Although thinner tiles will work on walls for decorative value, floor tiles need to be thicker and denser to handle foot traffic.
