The word ‘ceramic’ comes from the Greek word ‘keramos,’ which means pottery, while ‘tile’ is derived from the French term ‘tuile,’ which roughly translates to a roof type tile which is baked clay.

Ceramics are an ancient craft that date back some 4,000 years, originating in Ancient Egypt around 4,700 BCE. Tiles are made from clay, which once shaped and dried, are fired in a kiln at very hot temperatures. This process hardens the tiles, creating “bisque,” which can then be glazed and fired a second time. Tiles can also be used unglazed, although the color range is limited to the natural shades of the clay. Ceramic tiles have been a popular material for interior and exterior decoration for thousands of years. They come in all shapes and sizes, colors and glazes and can be used plain, decorated or as part of a mosaic. In short, ceramic tile is a timeless, luxurious and durable flooring choice that offers a unique opportunity for self-expression because of its detail, flexibility and sheer beauty. The Muslim peoples brought tile to its greatest splendor as a decorative medium. In the countries that came under their influence the tradition of a brilliant ceramic art is still active. Muslim architecture is distinguished by the lavish tile incrustations upon the exterior surfaces of walls, domes, and minarets, as well as in rooms, mosques, and patios. The Persians remained masters of tile decoration. Unsurpassed masterpieces of tile design were produced in Persia from the 12th to the 16th cent. Examples are the 15th-century Blue Mosque at Tabriz and numerous structures at Esfahan and Shiraz. 

Glazed ceramic tile has a ceramic coating applied to the tile body, which gives the tile its color and finish. Glazed ceramic tile is the natural choice for your interior floors and walls. It is: 

  • Durable - Properly installed ceramic tile will outperform and outlast nearly any other floor covering product created for the same application.

  • Easy care – Glazed ceramic resists stains, odors, and dirt and can be cleaned up with a damp mop or sponge or common household cleaners such as Mr.Clean, Spic and span, and many other cleaners that you can find at your local convenience store.

  • Scratch resistant – Grade III and Grade IV glazed ceramic tiles are extremely resistant to scratching and you never have to worry about a cut or tear like you do with other types of flooring material.

  • Environmentally friendly – ceramic tile is manufactured using natural materials and does not retain odors, allergens, or bacteria.

  • Beautiful and Versatile – modern ceramic manufacture ring technology has created virtually an unlimited numbers of colors, sizes, styles, shapes and textures that will add rich beauty and character to any room décor.

  • Fire Resistant – Ceramic tile doesn’t burn nor emit toxic fumes. A lighted cigarette, when dropped on the floor, even if allowed to sit, will not do any damage to ceramic tile. Even hot kitchen pan or skillets will not scorch or melt the surface of glazed ceramic tile.

  • Water Resistant – most glazed ceramic tile has a dense body that permits little or no accumulation of moisture. The mean spills from common liquids found in a kitchen are not a big concern.
