Choosing a floor for your kitchen can be a challenge. On one hand, you want a type of flooring that is water resistant and highly durable for all those liquid spills and pan drops. On the other hand, it has to be beautiful and stylish (it’s where you’ll spend most of your time!).
What if we told you that you could have it all?
Here is why tile flooring is an excellent option for your kitchen. It will hold up to any and all wear, is resistant to water damage and it comes in many different options – it can be hard to choose just one that you would want in your kitchen!
When you’re looking for tile, consider your personal style, the colour tones and style of your home, and the physical space you have to work with. There are numerous options that suit a multitude of different needs and wants, varying from overall finish to coating specifications of the flooring.
One of the most popular types of tile is porcelain. Porcelain isn’t just available as a flat white tile in your basic kitchen anymore. Porcelain tiles come in a variety of colours, sizes, shapes and prints, all suitable for any home and any style. New porcelain tiles can even look compellingly similar to wood, marble or rustic stone flooring. Popular for its versatility, stain and water resistance, this is a great choice for any kitchen, especially if you have kids or pets that tend to make a mess. This selection kicks things up a notch in the water resistance and durability department. The high-quality products sold at Paradigm are extremely eco-friendly and is a great addition to modern “green” homes.
An example of a timeless porcelain tile pattern is marble look, available as Carrara or Calacatta for example. Prized for its sweeping veins and rich dimension, this tile looks incredible and has been a staple of high-end homes for years. We love using large tiles (such as a 24”x48” format) to capture the natural elegance of this tile look and to continue vein patterns without as many grout interruptions.
