Definition of Tile

Tiles are thin rectangular or square floor coverings made from hard-wearing materials like ceramic, porcelain, stone, glass, or vinyl. 

Tiles are popular because they create a timeless look in homes and are durable and resistant to wear and tear. 

Tiles can be used in almost all commercial settings and in any area of a home, from kitchens and bathrooms to living rooms and bedrooms.

Tile installation is easy, and grout is used to fill in the gaps between tile pieces. They are available in a variety of colors, sizes, and patterns and vary in terms of water resistance, which leads to two categorizations: 

  • Vitreous tiles
  • Semi-vitreous tiles

Example of Tile in a Sentence

“Grout is the glue that holds tiles together.”
