Similarly, what is an advantage of ceramic tile for a kitchen?
Ceramic tiles have a glazed protective layer on their surface that makes them impervious to water damage and stain penetration. This is why tile is so often used to floor bathrooms. They're also naturally resistant to humidity, making them ideal for flooring an area that is very hot or moist.
Subsequently, question is, are ceramic tiles durable? Ceramic is best known for its durability, but size and color variation among lots can make it difficult to use. Ceramic tile is rated from zero to five based on hardness; zero through two is suitable for wall tile, three is good for most residential uses, and four and five are hard enough for commercial applications.
Similarly one may ask, which type of tile is best for kitchen?
Porcelain floor tile has sand added to the clay mixture and is made with heat and pressure to produce a tile that's harder, denser and less porous than regular ceramic tile. It's a good choice for high-traffic areas, kitchens and bathrooms. It's tough enough to be used outdoors in any climate.
Does ceramic tile chip easily?
There are many great quality ceramics that are more than sufficient in a house. All glazed tiles, whether porcelain or ceramic, have a PEI rating which will tell you how resistant the glazed surface is to scratching and chipping. A tile with a PEI of 1 will scratch and chip easily and should only be used on walls.
