Choosing the Right Tile for Your Bathroom Floor
When you are choosing tile for the bathroom, you will need to think about how many different types of tiles you want. Do you want a single type of tile for the floor, the shower pan, the shower walls, etc.? Or do you want different tiles used? Most tiles can be used for tiling the bathroom floor, but if you are installing a steam shower there may be some that are not well suited to that purpose, and certain tiles should also not be used in the shower pan.
You will also want to think about how slippery each option is. The bathroom is often wet, and if it is too slippery it could be a safety issue. The smaller the tile size is, and the more matte the finish is, the more likely you will be to get a good grip on it. If you want a gloss finish, just make sure you have bath mats to cover the areas you’ll be walking on while you’re wet.
Choosing the Right Tile for Your Kitchen Floor
The kitchen is a good place to install non-slip, tile, brick, or hand-painted tiles. In short, kitchen tile flooring can be made with just any material you would like. The kitchen is considerably less damp than the average bathroom, which means you can choose larger sizes and glossier finishes if you would like. Choose tiles based on what you like and what makes the most sense for the design of your kitchen.
Choosing Tiles for Your Entryway or Mudroom
These are generally areas that get an excess of traffic and are likely to get wait. As a result, we recommend small to medium sized tiles that are either glossy or matte finished. We also recommend choosing a grout that is stain-resistant. These are tiles that are likely to be cleaned regularly – make it as easy on yourself as you can.
