Like ceramic tiles, porcelain tiles are available in a wide variety of styles, designs, and patterns. However, unlike their ceramic counterparts, their color and pattern extend beyond their surface and through their full thickness. Natural stone tiles made from granite, marble, slate, travertine, and so forth are another option. While they are hard-wearing and have grown in popularity in recent years, they also represent the most expensive bathroom flooring option.

On top of that, natural stone bathroom floor tiles are porous. This means that, if not correctly sealed before use, they are prone to water and they stain easily. However, they should not be cleaned with bleaches or strong chemicals as they can potentially damage them.

Still, the earthy beauty associated with these bathroom tiles along with the fact that no two tiles are alike has seen them gain a healthy following. As long as they are well maintained and sealed periodically, they can handle wet areas without a problem. Even though they cost more than cheap bathroom floor tiles, they are worth considering.

Though they’ve been around for hundreds of years, cement tiles have become super trendy again in the design world. The process for making these tiles is no joke: Pigmented cement is hand poured into molds (similar to cookie cutters), molds are removed, then the tiles are compressed under 2,000 pounds of pressure. Cement tiles are available in a ton of different colors, patterns and sizes, though 8×8 tiles are probably the most common

Terracotta, Italian marble, and porcelain tiles seem to be the preferred choice these days. The designer and textured marble is best suited for large and spacious living rooms, whereas a small living room can be decorated with cement tiles.

Tiles are most often made of ceramic, typically glazed for internal uses and unglazed for roofing, but other materials are also commonly used, such as glass, cork, concrete and other composite materials, and stone. Tiling stone is typically marble, onyx, granite or slate.
Vitrified tile is a ceramic tile with very low porosity. It is an alternative to marble and granite flooring. Vitrified tiles are often used outdoors due to their water and frost resistance. There are four types of Vitrified tiles – Soluble salt, Double charge, Full Body, Glazed.

Type 2 construction is typically found in new buildings and remodels of commercial structures. The walls and roofs are constructed of non-combustible materials. Specifically, walls are usually reinforced masonry or tilt slab, while roofs have metal structural members and decking

There are twelve basic principles of design: contrast, balance, emphasis, proportion, hierarchy, repetition, rhythm, pattern, white space, movement, variety, and unity.
