What is a rectified tile?
These tiles have grout lines that are so narrow, it looks like one continuous and seamless surface, much like a quarried stone slab. Consider this type if you are considering a stone tile for bathroom remodels, especially when you want to create a high-end spa's serene and elegant atmosphere. Some people also add some glass tiles on the walls as an accent, as it pairs well with marble.
Are 4 X 4 squares the only ceramic?
We’re all familiar with the highly designed 4 X 4 square. This one is thinner, with a hard outer shell, making it almost impossible to crack. These tiles must be glazed to be waterproof and are acceptable for medium traffic indoor floors.
There are other ceramics, including mosaics, the tiny, often glass-coated pieces, often used as decorative accents on floors and walls. Terra Cottas are highly durable and have a beautiful reddish-brown color appropriate for rustic atmospheres. Although subway tiles are mainly seen on backsplashes, they can be used on low traffic indoor floors.
