Ceramic tile is the most common tile used in the USA in offices, stores and homes. Ceramic tile comes in two forms: glazed and unglazed. Ceramic tiles are made from clay and then heated. The glaze is added after the firing of the clay tile, which creates the color of the tile. The glazing process allows for the creation of infinite color combinations. It's beneficial for you because it's environmentally friendly, reduces household allergens, increases your home's value and is one of the smartest flooring choices around. Practical, functional and beautiful all describe ceramic tiles. From the many sizes, shapes and textures, you'll be amazed at all the choices you have for designing your dream floor, backsplash or wall. 

Ceramic tile is a beautiful addition to any room of the house. Most often seen in kitchens and bathrooms, ceramic tile can be used to decorate ceilings, showers, bathtubs, countertops, floors, walls, and even exterior surfaces. Decoration patterns can range from uniform tile to murals and other more creative designs, and the possibilities often lead homeowners to replace tile that is already in place. The process of removing and replacing tile is a time consuming one, prompting many homeowners choose to hire a contractor rather than try to do it themselves.
