Here are answers to some of the frequently asked questions -
Is terracotta ceramic tile durable?
Yes, it is. Terracotta has been used for generations for both its looks and functionality. Although the earlier versions were not as strong, today the terracotta tiles made from ceramic can be installed anywhere, from roofs to walls. But there’s one thing to note, they are not the best for high traffic areas, so make sure you do not install them on floors. All in all, you can find a range of terracotta tile design to do up your spaces!
Are terracotta tiles slippery?
The unglazed terracotta tiles are slippery, so be careful if you plan on installing them. They have high porosity, and do not come with a protective coating, so you also have to keep worrying about stains and scratches. But if you go for glazed ones, all of this is taken care of. The tiles come with an anti-slip finish, and prevent you from all kinds of falls. Plus, they are available at an affordable cost.
What is the difference between terracotta and ceramic?
Terracotta is a type of clay, and ceramics are the products obtained when it is fired at high temperatures. It is also referred to as the “baked earth” in Italian. The process of tile manufacturing is somewhat similar too. When the clay is exposed to the lowest temperatures, terracotta tiles are formed. Though they are durable, they have a higher water absorption rate than ceramic tiles. On the other hand, ceramic tiles are extremely durable, sturdy, and function better in wet areas.
What colours go with terracotta tile?
Since these tiles are known for their earthy tones, they complement lighter hues such as cream, pink, white and a toned down version of red. You could also experiment with darker shades like blue, green, and others, if you want a striking look.
