Ceramic tiles, clinker tiles, mosaic tiles or stone tiles?
When people speak of tiled surfaces they are usually referring to ceramic tiles that can be either conventional, clinker, stone or mosaic tiles.
Conventional ceramic tiles are wall-mounted ceramic tiles that are dry-pressed and glazed.
Clinker tiles are denser tiles that can be either glazed or non-glazed. The surface of the tile can be smooth, rough, grooved or embossed. Clinker tiles are usually dry-pressed and more accurately dimensioned, durable and weather-resistant than conventional ceramic tiles.
Mosaic tiles are small conventional or clinker tiles that are delivered in sets grouped together with paper or mesh.
Glass mosaic tiles are ornamental tiles used to accentuate surfaces, in particular.
Natural stone, such as marble or soapstone, is used as a surface material in the same way as ceramic tiles.
