When selecting ceramic tile for your floor installation, make sure the tile you are selecting is suitable for your application.
There are many different beautiful tiles to select from, but not all of them can be used on the floor. Just because a tile might be 12'x 12' it doesn't always mean it's a floor tile. Some tile is very slippery when wet, especially shiny tile. Some tile might be too soft.
There are basically 3 different types of applications.
Residential, Light Commercial, Commercial.
After knowing this, then it is a matter of Interior or exterior.
Then from there, it's- Floors/ Patios- Walls/ Backsplashes- Countertops- Pool Decking- Pool lining.
So it's always a good idea to ask for a spec. sheet on the particular tile that you are interested in before making your tile purchase.
