Category: Choosing your tiles

Considering kitchen flooring ideas? Make durability and function a priority when choosing. There is a huge variety of beautiful options and styles which can make the choice an overwhelming experience.

The kitchen is one of the highest traffic areas in a home. It is prone to spills of all sorts therefore, one of the key things to look for is that whatever option you go for, requires low maintenance and can withstand use over time.

Tiles are:

  • Low maintenance
  • Easy to maintain
  • Very durable
  • Moisture resistant
  • Have a reflective quality that gives the appearance of space in the kitchen

Tiles no longer come in one size and shape. In fact, the latest designs mimic wood and other material and come in a range of textures and patterns.

If you like the toughest flooring, that looks like stone, you may want to choose porcelain flooring tiles. It is the champion of durability. As it is fired at high temperatures, they are extremely hard, durable and stain-resistant material highly resistant to moisture.

Porcelain tiles come either glazed or unglazed. The unglazed tiles have naturally earthy tones, whereas the glazed ones have a glass-like coating available in a variety of colours.

You may also want to consider choosing slip-resistant tiles when it comes to the kitchen flooring to minimise accidents.
