Do you know the difference between granite and travertine? Did you know that tile is graded based on its abrasion resistance from 0 to 5? For example, porcelain enamel is graded a 0 on this scale. Did you know that tile is also graded on its moisture absorption from .5% to 20%? You can purchase subway, tumbled, glazed, or even textured tile. When planning a tile purchase, it is recommended that you order an additional 10% in case of cutting errors or breakage.
I recently came across an article by Houzz written by Janet Dunn that does a good job of explaining the different types of tiles and their uses.
