Before looking at the stone, there are a couple of things to consider. The main thing is that there are four unique types of stone: granite, marble, ceramic, and porcelain. With ceramic, there are glazed and unglazed floor tiles like natural stone.
Glazed is the most common style of ceramic, and it has a specific coating that is used on the body of the tile and then fired at a very hot temperature to seal the `tile. The glazing then makes a hard and non-porous result. The advantages of glazed stone are many such as fire resistance, slip resistance, fade resistance, scratch resistance and the best feature of all, easy-to-clean. Unglazed floor tile (natural stone) is free of the glazing process. Though, while unglazed tile can be quite good-looking, it is porous and must be taken care of regularly. There is a particular sealant that can be used to stop stains from growing and general dirt getting into the stone’s pours.
Porcelain tile is a sort of ceramic that is crafted from an excellent mixture of minerals and clays. The molecular makeup is like high-end dinnerware or fine china. These clays let porcelain tile be fired at even higher temps than ceramic tiles, over 2300 degrees. The greater the temperature, the denser the tile will get and the less moisture it will absorb. The advantages of porcelain are like those of ceramic. Porcelain is harder and thicker than most other tiles. It is moisture resistant, naturally hygienic, and easy to clean. Lastly, porcelain is not only gorgeous but also durable. It can be used in both homes and businesses.
Marble, Granite, and Limestone
Today, limestone, granite, and marble are very popular stone. These three stones are all individually unique and naturally made. No two stones ever look alike. One critical feature of these material types is that they must be sealed. They can be very porous, and therefore care must be taken with them. While they are porous, it isn’t difficult to care for them, which makes them very popular in many of today’s living space. It's commonplace to grout your tile after it has been installed. This is a combination of color additive and cement. Additionally, liquid latex can be put in the grout mixture to provide better resiliency to the grouted spots. It’s not unusual for grout to slightly change color over time. The design possibilities with ceramic tile are infinite.
