When homeowners are looking for a more natural look, they often turn first to porcelain. Made with higher quality clays and fired at very hot temperatures, it almost always has a through-body color construction that helps to mask chips and cracks, should they happen. You can also pick each tile personally, so as to maintain a look, exactly as you want it.
With ceramic, your decorating options are little wider since these tiles are often covered with brightly colored glazes. These tiles can be cut into various shapes as sizes, as they all can, to create everything from simple patterns to intricate mosaics, all at your own discretion.
For installation, make sure to use a professional service for the best results. Since tiles are so hard, and require specialty tools for proper installation, novice mistakes can lead to expensive repairs or replacements.
