Cost: Ceramic tile is often priced below $2 per square foot. Higher-end tiles can easily run $20 to $40 and more per square foot. The average tends to be around $7 to $9 per square foot.
This type of tile can make for a great accent in a bathroom, but I'd avoid using too much texture in a shower , since it can make for difficult cleaning. Try using it for a feature wall or feature corner instead.
I recommend cleaning ceramic tile with a white nylon scrub brush and a little soap. You shouldn't need much more than that. Ceramic is very durable, but it's best to stick to mild household detergents and to spot test before using anything new.
Installation: Installing ceramic tile is pretty straightforward; it could even be a DIY project if you have some experience working with tile. Many of today's ceramic tile actually has directional arrows on the back side; make sure you keep them lined up the same way so you get the correct look.
