Types and the choices of kitchen floor tiles and kitchen wall tiles

By Neha Seth Subscribe to RSS | July 7th 2012 | Views:

If we have a look at the modern day flooring patterns and the styles of flooring, we can easily find a lot of options available for our kitchen. However, in the present day context the fact is that in most houses the use of tiled floors has become the common fashion trend. One of the major reasons behind this choice is that the tiled floors make it a lot easier to clean and maintain the original look of the floor. This is also one of the major reasons behind the popularity of the Kitchen floor Tiles and the Kitchen wall tiles.

Types floor tiles: Making the right choice of the Kitchen floor Tiles is one of the most complicated tasks at hand. The main reason behind this is due to the availability of numerous varieties of floor tiles. However, these varieties can be categorized into two broad categories, the pressed tiles and the extruded (stone) tiles. However, when it comes to the Kitchen floor Tiles the most common choices comes from the pressed tiles which are more appropriate for domestic flooring. The press tiles can also be further cauterized into mono-cottura and bi-cottura. The mono-cottura tiles are the ones which have a much stronger base as these tiles are heated at a very high temperature; this offers the tiles to be more impact resistant. On the other hand the bi-cottura tiles are a lot finer and offers more decorative glaze. Apart from these there are also the porcelain tiles as well which comes under the choice of pressed tiles. These tiles are also popular for the durability that they offer. These tiles are perhaps the best choices in respect of the Kitchen floor Tiles. However, whenever, it comes to choice of the Kitchen floor Tiles or the Kitchen wall tiles the most important thing that should always be paid attention to is the choice of the brand and the manufacturer. The extruded tiles are generally made from wet clay which are then extruded into the required form and then heated. However, these tiles are better suited for outdoor use to provide rustic effect and are not very well suited for the purpose of kitchen flooring.

Kitchen flooring: As the kitchen is one of the busiest areas in every household therefore it is always a better idea to have durable flooring for the kitchen. Along with that it is also essential to note that it requires regular cleaning and maintenance. In such a case the choice of tile flooring of marble, porcelain, or slate is the best choices that can be made as they can provide additional durability along with the added benefit of better protection from water damage. It is also essential to make sure the tile job is neatly done both for the flooring and the kitchen wall tiles as well to prevent moisture and kitchen exhaust to get settled in the joint.
