When planning the details of your
kitchen remodel, choosing new kitchen tile may not be high on your priority list. However,
simply replacing your kitchen tile can really change the entire atmosphere
of your kitchen. For tips on how to choose the perfect kitchen tile from
your local home improvement store, keep reading.
Investigate Tile Materials
Tiles can be made of many different materials, each one adding a distinctive
element to your home décor. Tiles commonly used for
kitchen countertops or flooring include granite, marble, stone, quarry, and ceramic. For a
unique, rustic aesthetic, you can also choose flooring made of bamboo
or cork tiles. The tiles that are typically used for kitchen walls and
backsplashes include glass, ceramic, and porcelain. Ask a staff member
at a remodeling supply company which tile material would suit your kitchen best.
Consider Your Home Décor
Most tiles, regardless of material, are available in different styles,
patterns, and colors. If your kitchen remodel is only serving to make
your kitchen more modern and functional, then you’ll want to match
the material and color of your new kitchen tiles to your existing home
décor. If the purpose of your kitchen remodel is to update the
entire aesthetic of your kitchen, then you have a lot more freedom in
choosing the patterns and colors for your tiles.
Choose a Tile That Fits Your Lifestyle
If you have pets or children, you’ll want to choose kitchen tiles
that can withstand a lot of action and heavy traffic. Ceramic and vinyl
flooring can be particularly slippery when wet, and may cause problems
for children and the elderly. Stone tiles and tiles with some texture
are ideal surfaces for flooring in high traffic areas. Ceramic and granite
kitchen countertops are durable and can withstand heat.
