Ceramic tiles are used in both wall tile and floor tile applications; they are softer and easier to cut than porcelain. Non-porcelain ceramic tiles are usually suitable for very light to moderate traffic and generally have a relatively high water absorption rating, around 4%, making them less frost resistant and they are more prone to wear and chipping than porcelain tiles.
Most self-adhesive tiles are designed to last for just a few years of use in a bathroom before they need to be replaced. This is offset by the fact that they are easy to install, which cuts down on the cost of hiring a professional, and also easy to remove. Most products will also be relatively inexpensive, although the price can vary greatly depending on the quality of the material.
Brick flooring is very similar to stone and concrete in that it is a hard surface material, that is also permeable and needs to be sealed. However, once sealed it becomes a low-maintenance kitchen flooring option, that only has to be swept free of debris every few days. The surface sealant will have to be reapplied periodically, but as long as that is done on a regular basis, a well-installed brick floor can potentially last a lifetime.
