When glazed, ceramic tile has a hard outer shell that makes it almost impossible to crack. As a result, it can stand up to the busiest room without showing much wear and tear.

However, it's always essential to buy the right type for your project. Read labels carefully and talk to the experts in our tile store.

Porcelain: a good choice

Porcelain is heavier and denser. This is ideal for high-traffic areas like the living room.

Many also have a living room/seating area on their patios or decks. If you're one of the lucky ones, know that porcelain is OK to install outside.

This tile comes in a wide array of colors, patterns, and designs. It can also look like anything, including fabric and leather, and is often the preferred choice for wood- and -stone-look tiles.

Porcelain is a large format floor tile. Large formats are trending, and porcelain can go as large as 25-square.

Some of the best ceramics to consider

The 4 X 4 square is often great for indoor busy rooms for smaller families.

The terracotta bricks are so durable they're often used outside. So they're coming inside. Their gorgeous reddish-brown color works well with rustic designs.

Mosaics have been installed on floors for centuries. Don't let the small size fool you–they are highly durable.
