I don’t like to clean. I especially don’t like to clean the tub and shower so when choosing tile for these very wet areas you will probably want to go with porcelain or ceramic tile since they are virtually maintenance free. (You will want to double check to see if they need to be sealed.) Tiles make from natural stone require more maintenance and do have to be sealed. They are definitely more pours so they tend to hold on to dirt and grim more. If you are wanting to add texture with stone, it may be a good idea to use it on the floor or in a less wet area. Lastly, glass tile is so pretty and makes a great wall or accent tile. It is super slippery, so it doesn’t work well on the floor.
Mosaics can be very environmentally friendly and many today are made from recycled glass and other “found” objects. As for durability, as with any installed tile project, especially on the floor, it’s all in the preparation. With proper installation, mosaic bathroom floors will last a long time; after all, some have been in existence for thousands of years already!
