How to choose the Perfect Kitchen Floor Tile?
Kitchen floor tile can easily make your floor appear attractive and embellished. Tiles dramatically change the look and feel of your kitchen along with keeping the floor clean, spotless and germ-free. Therefore while remodelling or furnishing your kitchen you must not overlook the significance of floor tiles. The problem arises when you have to decide about the best kitchen floor tile option because of the huge variety in materials available. All the materials differ in characteristics, price and benefits.
The first decision that you need to make is choosing between glazed and unglazed tiles. Glazed tiles can be cleaned easily and are more resistant towards stains. However, the benefit of unglazed tiles is that unlike glazed ones these are not slippery at all. Therefore, if you have kids around then unglazed tiles will be more appropriate. Conversely, if you want a glossy and shimmery look then go for glazed ones.
Next in line is the issue of choosing the best material for kitchen floor tile. If durability, versatility in textures and classiness is your priority then opt for natural materials like porcelain, stone and/or pebble. Remember that porcelain and ceramic may get chipped easily. If you are concerned about budget then choose non-natural materials like plank, laminate, vinyl or linoleum. These are not only cheap but are available in a wide range of designs, textures and styles such as mosaic, marble and stone. You will feel most comfortable walking over these tiles and the fear of slipping, staining and inconvenience is minimal.
