Tiles  are best thing to do the covering and flooring of our home. The best thing about considering the tiles over the other alternatives is that  you have tons of varieties to select from the market. Before you select your cherry. You must know about the tiles in little deep. The types of the tiles and which is better for which purpose.  There are many types of tiles such as  ceramic tiles, quarry tiles, terracotta tiles, mosaic tiles and porcelain tiles. And the use of these tiles are also differ as their compositions and properties. Most common types of tiles are ceramic tiles, widely used in kitchens and bathrooms, near sink and basins because they prevent water from spreading moisture to the walls. The next type of tiles are quarry tiles these tiles are made from fired mud and clay. These tiles are extremely durable and strong that is the reason why they are used for commercial purposes. As  commercial sector has to bear more traffic and pressure, so the durability of these tiles are tested in this sector. And these tiles are also used for the home improvements as well. The people who are more concerned with the durability uses these types of tiles. The next type of tiles are terracotta tiles. These tiles are similar to the quarry tiles as they are also formed by cooking the mud and clay. But the basic difference is that these are not as much strong as quarry tiles. And these tiles have the tendency to absorb the liquid. Which quarry tiles doesn’t have.  So  you need to use the tle sealant to avoid dampness and all if you are using the terracotta tiles. The next type of tile is porcelain tile.  These types of tiles  comes close to the ceramic tiles as they both are highly durable. But the difference  is that the porcelain tiles are little expensive than the ceramic ones. And the tendency to be an absorbent is lower than of ceramic tiles. These tiles are famous for the  home improvement things as they are little better in looks and feel.  The next type of tile are natural stone tiles. The best thing about the natural stone tiles is that they are natural as the name indicates.  These are the best tiles if you are close to nature and want to give natural look to your décor. Beside being beautiful these are also very durable.
