Ceramic tile is lightweight, made from natural materials, and comes in a wide variety of styles. It is usually found in residential kitchens and bathrooms because of its affordability. When covered with the right glaze, ceramic can be incredibly resistant to scratching, making it a great choice if you have pets in your home or for use in high traffic areas.Shop Ceramic
