Kitchen Floor Tile Tips

Materials for kitchen tile flooring are available in a variety for you to pick from: concrete, stone, ceramic, and other ones. The type chosen should depend upon your kitchen design, as well as the quantity of wear and tear you expect the kitchen to see. Below we list things to consider while choosing kitchen floor tile:

Linoleum Tile – Designed from pine rosin, hardened linseed oil, mineral fillers and wood flour, linoleum tile has certain care directions, so it doesn’t lose any natural antibacterial properties.

Ceramic tile – Provides high durability and low maintenance—unless the subfloor is susceptible to movement. If so, ceramic tiles easily can crack. Select an alternative tiling or replace the subfloor before you install ceramic tile.

Be certain you choose tile that’s intended for floors—and not walls. They often are directly next to one another at the tile shop; therefore, if a surface feels extremely smooth on your hands, it’s likely to be extremely slippery underfoot! Pick a texture and color which hits the proper balance: too dark shows dust within the sunlight and too light is going to show stains.
