How do I calculate the number of tiles I need?
Normally, the tile flooring area is calculated in order to find the required number of the tiles for a given space. Assuming that situation, here is an example: Multiply the tile length by the width to find the area that one tile will cover in square inches. Divide this result by 144 to convert it to square feet. Then, divide the area of the space that you're tiling by the square footage of one tile to determine how many tiles you will need.
Are ceramic tiles non-slip?
Ceramic tiles are not usually equipped with an anti-skid feature, which is why they should be avoided for spaces like bathrooms where there is a lot of water usage.

What types of finishes exist?
The most commonly used tile finishes you will find are -
Polished (or glossy) finish- where a long lasting sheen is added on top of the surface to make it shiny.
High glossy finish - where an extra layer of shine is added on top of the surface to give the tile a mirror-like finish.
Carving finish - in which marble and wood grains are created across the tile surface to give it a natural look.
Matt finish - where a special layer is added on top of the tile to take away the shine and make it anti-slippery.
Sugar finish - in which a transparent textured finish is added to the final glaze.
Wood - Punch Matt finish - here a special coating is added on top of the finish to enhance the colours and grains on the design.
For bathrooms and other areas that see a lot of water usage, matt finish tiles are the best choice, owing to their anti-skid properties.
