Ceramic 4X4 squares, too, are highly decorative and can be glazed or unglazed. They must be glazed, however, to be waterproof and that glazing also gives them a hard outer shell. They can be used on medium traffic floors indoors, on backsplashes, accent walls and tub/shower surrounds.
More ceramic tiles include mosaics, the tiny, highly decorated pieces that are durable and mold/mildew resistant. Terracotta pieces are ultra-strong, and also porous, so ask about sealing requirements. Subway ceramics, the formerly the all-white 3 X 6 rectangles usually seen on backsplashes, are now available in all colors, shapes, and sizes. While they can be used on floors, it is recommended that they be installed in low traffic areas.
