Tile is one of the most sensible and popular flooring choices for kitchens, and for good reason. There is such a wide variety of tile options available to give your kitchen a unique and luxurious appearance at any price point. Better yet, tiles are incredible durable and can resist an array of pressures including heavy foot traffic and humidity. Some are completely waterproof and make it a perfect choice for your kitchen.

These days, lots of people love the appearance of hardwood flooring but have reasonable concerns about maintenance and cost. You can purchase ceramic flooring tiles that look exactly like various types of hardwood planks. It’s doubtful that any of your guests will know that you have tile and not hardwood unless they bend down to touch it. Because these tiles are much thinner than flooring planks, you may be able to install them when you don’t have enough room to install wood flooring too.

Stone Floor Tiles

You might think you can only choose between porcelain or ceramic tiles. You can also select stone tiles that are crafted from such stones as marble, granite, slate, or limestone. You typically need to seal stone floors and may need to have stone floors polished from time to time. You can also purchase ceramic tile that has been crafted to look and even have the texture of natural stones.

The appearance of wood or stone will probably never go out of style. At the same time, you may choose a solid color tile if you want to achieve a more contemporary look in your kitchen. A solid color can also help accentuate your wall color, sleek and modern appliances, and kitchen fixtures and furniture. You may also find that it’s cheaper to install, buy, and match a plain color. You might also match your tiles with your kitchen backsplash.

Should You Choose a Trendy Kitchen Tile?

The main drawback to choosing tile is that it may feel hard and cold. If it gets wet, it can also be slippery. If you choose tile, you might also add mats or area rugs by the sink, counters, table, and doorway. You can buy mats and rugs with sticky backs, so they won’t slip and will also provide a little traction underfoot.

Homeowners who want to strike the right balance between easy maintenance, cost, and value will often choose kitchen tile. It’s a durable choice even if you anticipate lots of foot traffic and spills. You can clean most messes up by sweeping or mopping. Also, you have the option to buy a couple of extra tiles in the unlikely event one gets cracked or damaged.
