 The hardness of the material is one valuable property. Based on the ability of the material to withstand the wear and foot traffic the tiles are divided into several classes. You can take the scale as a reference.  Class 1: For no foot traffic. These tiles are for wall applications only.  Class 2: Light traffic. It can withstand soft-soled to normal foot traffic.  Class 3: Light to moderate traffic. Can withstand normal foot traffic.  Class 4: For moderate to heavy foot traffic.  Class 5: For heavy to very heavy foot traffic.

 Like hardness the porosity of the tile is also classified into several categories. Porosity means the ratio of air holes to solids in the tile.The porosity of a tile decides the water abruption.  Impervious:These tiles have water absorption of less than 0.5 percent.  Vitreous: The water absorption of vitreous tiles is between 0.5 percent and 3 percent.  Semi Vitreous: These tiles have water absorption of 3 to 7 percent.  Non-Vitreous: Non-vitreous tiles have water absorption higher than 7 percent.  For the kitchen you should use Impervious type tiles.
