Ceramic tiles are made from natural red or white clay mixtures that is been baked at high temperatures via a kiln.
A durable ‘glaze’ or design is added to the face of the tile. Ceramic is used for both wall (backsplashes) and floor tiles. Because ceramic is softer and easier to cut than porcelain, it is more prone to wear and in some cases chipping.
Therefore you would want to install ceramic tiles only in light to moderate traffic area(s).
