Ceramic tile is made with a low fired clay bisque that appears either white or red-brown. It is appropriate for lighter usage areas such as Toronto bathrooms and kitchen backsplashes. Toronto kitchen counters can be made with some ceramic tiles, but their durability will not be equal to Porcelain grade tile. Colors can range anywhere on the spectrum, from monochromatic contemorary to a heavily varied handmade look. Many ceramic tiles have a wide variety of embossed and painted decorative options. Ceramic grade tiles are generally not recommended for floors in Toronto. Ceramic tile sizes typically range from 4" to 8" squares, and popular European rectangular sizes starting at 8" x 12" all the way up to 13" x 40"
Ceramic tiles are an excellent covering for your Toronto walls and are especially useful in rooms where water is used i.e. your Toronto bathroom and kitchen. The end result can look stunning with nice clean lines and fantastic designs and colours.
Selecting Tile Sizes - These days' wall tiles are available in a huge range of sizes from 100 x 100mm through to 330 x 445mm. There are also ranges created in old fashioned imperial sizes such as 4 ½ inch squares, when converted to metric these can create some unusual numbers. When choosing ceramic tiles in Toronto, it is very important to select the correct size for your room as it can save you a lot of tile cutting and wastage (you can ask The Tile Store to work this out for you). Remember to factor in the space required for grouting as well.
Note: This is a small sampling of tiles, there are many more styles available in the store.
