About the tiles we are working with (General Characteristics)
Historically these have been the main type of tile available for both walls and floors. For indoor use, they provide a tough decorative surface that looks great, and they are maintenance-free as well as long-lasting.
Porcelain tiles are generally harder wearing than ceramic tiles and virtually impervious to water and many are frost-resistant, so they can be used indoors or outdoors. They are often manufactured in larger sizes than ceramics.
Natural stone tiles
This is the collective term for many products including travertine, marble, granite, limestone, and slate. Being natural these tiles produce some really stunning designs and are very hardwearing, but can be porous and require treating or sealing before using.
Mosaics come in a choice of ceramic, glass, and natural stone, as well as more unusual materials such as stainless steel and even real seashell. They are usually supplied on sheets that can be used whole or cut for borders and features to create some stunning decorative effects.
