Stylish furnishings, luxurious home appliances, might look out of luster if the floors and walls are ill-kempt and poorly kept. But, the use of vitrified tiles can offer a sparkle to your home or the workplace.

Prepared from first-rate terracotta, vitrified tiles amalgamate hardness and stylishness. Its finishing is done with polishing and dull glaze, making them stain resistant and trouble-free to maintain. These can be used as both indoor as well as outdoor tiles.

For use in the outdoors of a house — entrance or verandah — a variety of vitrified tiles can be selected. These have an extremely long life. However, for commercial locations, as in shops and showrooms, 'fully vitrified tiles' are more appropriate than any other option, as it soaks up less than 0.5% water and are frost resistant .Fully ones come in both glazed as well as unglazed forms.

Glazed tiles are also known as mirror polished tiles. These are dry pressed, by means of clays, silica, coloring oxides and feldspar, fired around 1200 degrees.

Except for the fully vitrified tiles there are normal as well as semi vitrified tiles. If the water absorption is amid 0.5% to 3%, it is a normal one. These can be both dry pressed or else extruded.

A semi vitrified tile has water absorption power of 3% to 6%. These are also identified as porcelain tiles. It is usually dry pressed. In semi vitrified tiles a latest variety, identified as imported or Chinese vitrified tiles is also present. These are cheaper in both quality and cost. The unglazed semi vitrified tiles also come in the similar variety.

For internal use, anti-skid tiles are chosen. These are an element of fully ones. But anti-skid tiles come just as rustic browns and greys which makes the option limited. These are usually polished for artistic reasons.

One good thing is that they can be simply fitted. Installation is much simpler than granite or marble tiles. This can save time for both the layers and the homeowners.
