Durable, economical and non-porous, porcelain tiles offer a versatility of design unmatched in other materials. Printed porcelain tiles used to look fake because the printing technology used to print finishes on the tiles meant poor quality, pixilated images. Today, porcelain manufacturers use highly specialized inkjet printers to create finely detailed stone, fabric and metal finishes.
Ceramic tile is made of clay mixed with naturally mined elements. Traditionally, tiles were left unglazed like those seen on rooftops in the Mediterranean or the floors of California missions. Today, tiles are glazed to give the surface a coating, which lends texture and durability and protects decorative designs.
Glass tiles have come a long way up in design options and down in price. Modern technology now allows manufacturers to make full glass mosaic sheets and shaped tiles with different sizes, textures, colors, and sheens to meet both modern and traditional looks.
