Tile flooring suggestions for bathrooms and kitchens

Tile flooring suggestions for bathrooms and kitchens

Tile flooring is an excellent choice for kitchens and baths. It's rugged, durable, resistant to stains, and can last up to 50 years with proper care.

It withstands heavy foot traffic, kids, and pets and doesn't absorb odors or bacteria. 

Tile flooring is stylish, hypoallergenic, and adds value to a property. What more could you want?

Porcelain tile: best for busy rooms like the kitchen

Porcelain, a type of ceramic, has a composition that includes clay, sand, and glass. As a result, it's heavier and denser and can be used indoors or out.

But make no mistake: Porcelain is as beautiful as hard-wearing. Our tile store has a large assortment of colors and styles.  

Also, a large format tile currently trending can look like anything, including fabric and leather. However, it's often the preferred choice for wood-look or stone-look tile flooring.

Mosaics: trending on bathroom floors

These are tiny, highly decorative, and often glass tiles. However, they are durable, so don't let their size fool you, and also mold and mildew resistant.

Mosaics are highly sought after for bathrooms, as much for design as their many grout lines that enhance “grip.”

Ceramics: not just the 4 X 4 square

You'll see an almost unlimited selection when shopping for tile in Independence, MO. 

They all have different absorption and strength levels which determine where and how they can be used. Read labels thoroughly.

They include:

1.Squares: highly designed, often glazed, best for indoor floors in moderately busy rooms.  

2.Terracotta bricks: durable and can be used indoors or out. 

3.Subway tiles: best in indoor, low-traffic rooms.

Natural stone tile flooring: Adding elegance and property values

Stones like marble, granite, quartz, and travertine are prevalent. Stone is also durable and easy to clean. Ask about any sealing requirements.
