When installing kitchen tile you want to try to find materials that aren’t excessively porous, as this quality will allow water to seep into the material, potentially resulting in staining and other damages. Porcelain tile is fired at a high temperature, which helps to make it denser and less porous. With a wide variety of designs and colors available, this durable tile will match existing kitchen décors and hold up well against moisture and high levels of foot traffic.
Glass tiles allow for an exceptional level of customization since they are available in so many colors, shapes, and styles. This material is also ideal for kitchens because it is completely water resistant. You won’t have to worry about any spilled liquids being absorbed by your glass flooring. This quality also makes them easier to clean since liquids will simply lay on the surface, rather than soaking in and causing potential mold and mildew issues.
Many natural stones are porous materials, which can make them susceptible to water damage and staining. Therefore, when using natural stone in the kitchen you’ll want to ensure that it’s properly sealed. It may need to be re-sealed every few years, but this will help ensure that your natural stone holds up to high levels of foot traffic, spills, and other potential sources of damage. Of all the available natural stones, slate is a relatively durable one that will hold up well in kitchens.
