Selecting a Floor Tile for your Kitchen
Many factors have to be taken into account when selecting a floor for a room. This is especially true when it comes to choosing the right flooring for your kitchen. The kitchen tends to be regarded as the center of the home, where cooking, eating, and entertaining take place, making it an area that is meant to be warm and inviting, yet durable and resourceful.
Whether you are living in a home with small children, pets or none of the above, it is important to look into floor tiling that is easy to maintain and keep clean. But this doesn’t mean that you have to sacrifice style in your design. Porcelanosa’s Par-Ker® tiles are a wood porcelain collection that has the stylish and timeless look of real hardwood. Combined with the low maintenance and superior performance of using porcelain tiles, the collection is a durable option with with an appearance that will never fade, making it ideal for prolonged use. Par-Ker® is available in a variety of color combinations making it appealing to almost all interior design styles. The Ascot Arce tile can give a natural wood look to your kitchen, while the Chelsea Arce resembles a lighter wood color. These finishes are also available in anti-slip versions which are also ideal for kitchens.
Durability is another characteristic to take into account when selecting a kitchen floor tile. Many folks choose to go for more of an industrial look when selecting flooring for their kitchen because the kitchen tends to get more foot traffic than any other room in the house. It is the center point for dining, family gathering, homework and much more. Porcelanosa’s Stuc collection is ideal for anyone looking to add flooring that can withstand high foot traffic and is available in 3 different textures/finishes. The finish that is more suitable for kitchens would be the polished version such as Stuc White Pulido. Another Porcelanosa floor tile collection that is suitable for high traffic areas and looks great in a kitchen is the Morse collection. Morse is available in Beige, Coal, Grey & White variations.
Give your kitchen an instant pop by going with a decorative tile such as Porcelanosa’s new Deco Bluestone tile or any of our other decorative selections, such as the Barcelona collection.
