The 5 Colors of Architecture 12x24 Polished

If the space is clean, sleek, and current, here’s good news: Architecture porcelain tile is great for Architecture rooms. Here’s why: • Monolithic nature—the tile is uniform in color with very little variation between tiles • Rectified edge—its perfected square edge enables the small grout lines that suit contemporary decor • Polished surface—the silky sheen gives a beautifully smooth, lustrous look There’s an exciting color story, too. Colors are very on-trend, with the color going through the body of the tile. Plus, most colors are combined in a randomlinear mosaic that can be used on both wall and floor, and a 2 x 2 matte mosaic perfect for shower floors.

Glaze Hardness

Product Specifications
Glaze Hardness
Glaze Hardness
The relative hardness of glazed tile is an important issue that should be addressed when selecting a tile. The test is performed by scratching the surface of the tile with different minerals and subjectively assigning a Method of Hardness "MOH's" number to the glaze. The softest mineral used is talc (a #1 rating if no scratch), the hardest is a diamond (a #10 rating if no scratch). Other minerals of varying hardness that provide MOH's values of five or greater are suitable for most residential floor applications while a value of seven or greater is normally recommended for commercial applications. Both abrasion resistance and glaze hardness should be addressed when considering using glazed tiles as floor products.

Shade & Texture Variation

Variations in size, color, texture, and pattern are to expected in ceramic flooring. In fact, they should be enjoyed. These variations are part of what makes ceramic tile such a unique and beautiful choice for your home.

Each Shaw Ceramic flooring product is labeled for shade and color variation with one of the following ratings:

  • Low – Consistent shade and texture
  • Moderate – Moderate shade and texture variation
  • High – High shade and texture variation
  • Random – Very high shade and texture variation

For a neat, contemporary-looking tile floor, choose a tile with a low shade and texture rating. A tile with a high or random shade and texture rating will achieve a more casual, rustic effect.
