It is composed of a non-porous clay called kaolin. Therefore, it's waterproof whether or not it's glazed. That lack of absorption eliminates stains and adding to the ease of cleanability. It can also be used outside on deck and patio floors, as well as poolside. Of course, there are other ceramics, such as the 4 X 4 squares we all know, mosaics, terracottas, and subway tiles.
The temperature can sometimes go as high as 100 degrees or more in Arizona. If you walk into a room (in bare feet) with tile flooring that’s already chilly it will transfer to your entire body. It will make you feel cool. Keep in mind that it also works the other way, such as when a patio or deck is in direct sunlight.
