The 4 X 4 (or larger or smaller) squares are highly decorated and often glazed. Although they are thinner, the glaze creates a hard outer shell that makes them difficult to crack. As a result, they are appropriate for moderately heavily foot trafficked rooms, backsplashes, countertops, and walls.
Mosaics are tiny (often as small as one square), highly decorative, often glass-coated pebble-like pieces. Also, mold and mildew-resistant are trending for bathrooms for their glamorous look and many grout lines enhancing traction.
Terracotta is trending hot for indoor decor, as their beautiful reddish-brown colors fit so well in rustic decor. However, these bricks are durable, can also be used outside, and are somewhat porous so ask about sealing to make cleaning easier.
Others include subway tiles, often used on backsplashes. They are also appropriate for low-traffic rooms indoors. Finally, listellos are border tiles used as accents.
