Tile comes in a range of materials, such as glass, porcelain, ceramic, and stone.
Ceramic tiles made from clay or a mixture or clay, feature either a "glazed" or "unglazed" face, and fired about red heat in the course of manufacture to a temperature sufficiently high to produce specific physical properties and characteristics.
Beautiful glazes can bring out the natural body of tile that can match modern design scheme. Glazed tiles are decorated with natural and artificial colors, and can include color variation or uniform color depending on your design needs. The metallic lustre of glazed ceramics can be a very special type of decoration that reflects light.
