The kitchen is the one room in the house that can have several different types of tiles, in different applications, and they all will enhance your kitchen beautifully. When choosing kitchen tile for your home consider where it is going to go first. A glossy tile that goes on a wall will not be the same as flooring tile. Kitchen Wall Tiles Cape Town

Flooring tile has to be safe to walk on, and a glossy floor kitchen tile could be unsafe underfoot. Here are tips for choosing the right application and type of tile for your kitchen.

Determine where the tile will be installed

Before you select a material you will need to decide what surface the tile will be applied. Tile can be placed as a backsplash behind a stove, or on the wall to the underside of the upper cabinets. Tile is a popular countertop material, and can also be used on the kitchen floor.

Determine your budget before getting sold on the look

Kitchen tile can be inexpensive, such as vinyl and linoleum tiles or they can be expensive, such as custom-designed ceramic tiles. Do your homework before getting married to an envisioned look in your head! Tile and home improvement stores can help you estimate the amount of product that will be required for your kitchen.

Consider your household’s lifestyle

Although kitchen tile is resilient, it still requires upkeep and the longevity of each material differs. For countertops, ceramic tile is durable and will hold up to heat from hot pans, and is easy to clean and maintain. Unfortunately, a ceramic tile surface can be uneven and it can easily crack or chip. Determine if your family’s lifestyle will match the tile finish you choose.

Consider your household’s lifestyle

When choosing floor tile it has to be durable enough to withstand heavy traffic, pets, spilt foods and cleaning supplies. Ensure that you purchase floor tile that is called ‘floor tile’. If you choose a wall tile for a floor the coefficient of friction (COF) will be too low, which in turn means it’s too slippery for walking.

Instead choose a floor tile that has a slightly raised pattern, or texture to it to allow for a safer kitchen floor. For a more refined and elegant look consider using quarry tile. The clay and limestone-based tile is fired to look like natural stone. Quarry tile is more expensive than the traditional ceramic tile but is gorgeous in the right application.

Your kitchen floors, counters and backsplash have a variety of tile styles to fit your budget and taste. Consider these tips when choosing tile for your kitchen. Research your tile options and then make your kitchen the one you’ve always dreamed of!
