Say goodbye to hard cemented floors that are not inviting. There are several floor tiles that will make you fall in love with your home. Here are the five best tiles for your floor.
Travertine is a kind of limestone that has been hardened by hot water springs. Due to its natural extraction, it comes in a variety of colours and patterns. These come from the number minerals that are infused into the limestone as it hardens. Travertine is not easily stained and can be used even in the kitchen. Its lovely colours make it great for use in the living room and patio.
Porcelain is a great alternative to the natural stone because it is not as porous as the natural stone. The porcelain tile does not have high shade variation thereby giving a uniform look in your room. Porcelain is also easy to clean even when it comes to tough stains. You can use it in both the kitchen and the living room and at different shades.
The ceramic tiles are made by the process of heating natural clay that has several other minerals infused in it. Clay tiles come in a variety of colours, shapes, textures, and sizes. They are also hard and look as natural as the natural stone. Clay tiles are not very good for the kitchen due to the frequency of spills as they are not totally impervious.
Slate is a natural metamorphic rock that is found in many areas around the world. Tiles made of slate come in different shades and shapes. The colours range from navy to sage, red to copper and from tan to black. Slate is very durable and can be used for both indoor and outdoor tiling. In fact, it blends well with the nature when layered on the pathways and the patio.
Granite tiles are made from granite rock, which is an indigenous rock. It comes from the cooling and solidification of lava from volcanic eruptions. Tiles vary in colours and the visual depth. They also have small freckles on the surface that make the floor look unique. When pieced together granite tiles look natural and lovely. There are many more types of tiles for your home. When selecting the tiles you want, look at the colour, texture, shapes and the area that you would like to use the tiles. Make you home more inviting with lovely looking tiles.
