About Moroccan Tiles
You find yourself staring unenthusiastically at rows of plain, boring floor layouts, until one look at Moroccan tiles, with bright colors and beautiful Middle Eastern patterns, leaves you floored – literally. These tiles derive from many materials, including porcelain, ceramic, and cement. Porcelain tiles rank among the heaviest and most expensive tiles. They feature beautiful shiny surfaces, and make nice additions for small spaces, like bathrooms. Porcelain retains its shine with routine maintenance. Indoor use is ideal for these tiles, as the sun causes fading quickly. Ceramic tiles, in contrast, feature a lightweight and durable composition. These tiles fit nicely in indoor and outdoor areas. They have surfaces that clean easily, making them suitable for areas with high foot traffic. They withstand sun exposure, and do not crack easily when exposed to sun and high heat. Cement tiles are heavier than ceramics and even more durable. You can use these element-resisting tiles outdoors, or place them around the floors of tubs and showers. On eBay, you can search a large inventory of Moroccan tiles, using many parameters to narrow your options. You might search by national theme, like Mexican and Spanish. You can look for tiles by price, as well as styles, like Valencia, Moorish, Granada, and Andalucia.
