1.Most of what we usually call "skid-proof tile" are almost full body tiles. Full body tile is a kind of wear-resistant tile, but relatively speaking, its design and color is not as good as glazed tiles. As the current interior design is more and more inclined to plain color design, and have fair price,  so the tile has become more and more a fashion and popular.

2.As the glazed tile surface is glaze, so the wear resistance is not as good as polished tile.  Kitchen should choose bright glazed tiles, not Matt glazed tiles, because oil stains into the tile surface, it is difficult to clean.

3.Vitrified tile is superior to glazed tile, polished tile and general marble in water absorption, edge straightness, bending strength and acid and alkali resistance.

4.Compared with glazed tiles, the difference between antique tiles and glazed tiles mainly lies in the glaze color. Antique tiles belong to common ceramic tiles and are basically the same as other tiles.
