Ceramic tiles are primarily of three types, namely glazed tiles, unglazed tiles, and scratch-resistant tiles. Glazed tiles are primarily used in general & wet areas, such as kitchens, bathrooms, and laundry areas, as these tiles have an extra glass-based protective layer, which makes them water and stain-resistant.

Moreover, they are easier to clean and many of them possess scratch-resistant properties, which keep them aesthetically pleasing for longer periods.
