Cooking in the kitchen can make you feel uncomfortable, especially on hot summer days. Imagine how great it would be to feel the cool sensation of tile flooring under your feet. Needless to say, tile flooring has many perks – it’s easy to clean and looks beautiful too. But how do you choose the right one?
If you’re having trouble deciding, here are three primary types of tile to consider:
Porcelain. Made from minerals and sands. This water resistant flooring is a great option for those summer parties where you’re more likely to have a spilling accident. Porcelain is also hard and dense, making it ideal for installation if your kitchen is a high traffic area in the home.
Ceramic. Made from various types of clay. Ceramic tile is simple to install, but more prone to damage than porcelain. So be wary about dragging chairs or dropping heavy pots and pans on the floor if you’re thinking of investing in ceramic tile.
Stone. Possibly the most expensive type of tile, but also the most durable. This beautiful flooring option requires sealing but once intact, you’ll have a timeless element added to your kitchen.
Play up tile flooring with different shapes and sizes. Squares are a popular shape, but rectangles, hexagons, and octagons can also make a bold statement. Consider the durability, texture, and level of water resistance upon making your decision.
If you’ve already found the perfect kitchen tile for your home make sure to keep them looking clean! Constant foot traffic, the use of cleaners, and even the presence of moisture especially during the warmer seasons take their toll on tile flooring.
