Best Tile Flooring for your Kitchen
What Kinds of Flooring is Best?
When it comes to kitchen flooring it may seem like hardwood is the way to go. This however is not the only option for those homeowners that may not want hardwood in every room of their home. Instead, tile flooring is a wonderful option when it comes to kitchen flooring for a wide range of reasons.
What is the Best type of Tile for a Kitchen Floor?
Tile floors are first and foremost far more substantial and sturdier than hardwood floors. While hardwood is great for areas like living rooms and bedrooms, a kitchen tile floor gets a much tougher day to day treatment than floors in other parts of your home. Generally, kitchen floors see nasty spills, items being dropped on them, and high traffic as well and a hardwood may not be up to the challenge.
Tile is a fantastic alternative and it is relatively inexpensive. Tile that is not made of natural stone can be reasonable in cost. These tiles are going to be things like porcelain that has been created in a factory. These tiles are durable and can be chosen in a wide range of colors and finishes. Natural stone tiles on the other hand can be as inexpensive as $5 per square foot and as expensive as $30 per square foot depending on the rarity of the stone that you choose.
Which Tiles are Better for Flooring?
Tile is a fantastic option because it does come in so many different colors, finishes, and sizes. Unlike hardwood that is limited to wood stains, tile can be as out there as bright blue or as subdued as a light grey or brown. Tile is truly versatile and can help extend the life of your kitchen flooring without breaking the bank.
Another benefit of tile is that it is easy to install and it does not tend to scratch or take in stains as easily as a hardwood might. In an area where food is being cooked and spills are common, it is beneficial to have something like tile that can be quickly and easily cleaned up without having to worry about special cleaners and protecting the finish of the wood. Tile floors are easy to care for and are beautiful as well.
With tile floors you can be sure you are going to get a durable floor that is beautiful, easy to care for, and completely customizable. Though hardwoods are stunning, maybe tile is the way to go.
