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.
The drawbacks of ceramic tile flooring are minimal. Most often cited is the fact that ceramic tile is cold and hard. The coldness can actually be an advantage in very hot climates—which is one reason why it is often found throughout the home in Southwest residences. But tile can be "warmed" and softened by using rugs, or by installing radiant-heat systems below the floor.
For a truly unique look you can be sure no one else has, mosaic tile is one of a kind. On the floor, mosaic tile is sure to make a statement in your room. Mix and match your favorite colors to create a design all your own. Or, stick with a neutral color scheme to let your room accents stand out. Whatever you choose, mosaic floor tile is sure to make your room more glamourous.
One of the major differences between the two options is the price. Ceramics are much less expensive than real solid hardwood flooring installations. Ceramics also tend to be easier to keep clean and maintain over time, since they are less susceptible to water damage and staining.
