Glazed Ceramic Tile: Naturally Waterproof

Bathrooms and kitchens are some of the rooms in which you’ll most commonly see ceramic tile floors. What makes tile such a great fit in these spaces? What you may not have realized is that typically, when you see a tile floor in a bathroom, it’s specifically a glazed ceramic style.
Glazed tiles have a super-hard protective layer on the surface that makes these tiles waterproof – perfect for splash-prone bathrooms and spill-prone kitchens. Glazed tile also naturally stands up to humidity without damage. Consider a glazed ceramic tile for your own kitchen, laundry room, mudroom or bathroom!
