The kitchen is often described as the heart of the home as it is not only the busiest space, but it is generally where we spend the most time. Kitchens are where we cook, eat, catch up on the day with family, entertain friends, and so much more. They are an ever-changing multi-functional space that requires a robust floor to keep up with the wear and tear of everyday life.
Whilst modern interior trends lean towards wood or concrete materials, we firmly believe that you can’t beat stone tiles for kitchen floors.
What are the advantages of using tiles for your kitchen floor?
- Low Maintenance – Tiles are incredibly easy to maintain and only require to be regularly swept, vacuumed, and occasionally mopped.
- Hard Wearing – The durable nature of tiles makes them ideal for kitchens as they can withstand the daily footfall from kids, pets and everyone else!
- Resistant – Food and liquid are bound to fall onto the kitchen floor, but with tiles, you won’t have to worry about damage as they are moisture and heat-resistant. There will be no risk of bacteria growing or odours lingering as everything can be easily wiped away.
- Investment – Tiles will last decades if properly looked after and will only add value to your property, making them an ideal investment in your home.
What is the best type of tile for a kitchen floor?
There are countless tile options on the market for kitchen floors, but we always highly recommend stone tiles.
Available in a wide variety of colours and finishes, natural stone floors are hard-wearing, easy to maintain and will last for years to come. They are one of the most practical and aesthetically pleasing flooring choices that are durable enough to withstand the heavy footfall of busy family homes.
How to look after kitchen floor tiles
One of the best attributes of stone kitchen floor tiles is that they are easy to look after and are relatively self-sustaining. The best way to look after your flooring is to wipe away spills quickly and regularly sweep away any dust and dirt. By keeping your tiles free from build-up, you will reduce the risk of staining or scratches appearing on the surface.
Occasionally mopping the tiles with a mixture of warm water and a mild everyday cleaner (preferably with a neutral pH) will also help to keep your floors looking brand new.
