Porcelain and glazed porcelain tiles are the best tiles for floors – they are easily wiped clean and require no sealing. Porcelain tiles are very durable and are able to withstand high levels of footfall experienced in kitchens, hallways and bathrooms. Due to their low porosity, porcelain and glazed porcelain tiles are very well suited for floor areas that frequently become wet, making them an ideal, low maintenance solution for bathroom and kitchen floors. When choosing floor tiles, remember to factor in slip resistance and opt for tiles with a high anti slip rating for peace of mind in floor areas that are likely to get wet.
Any colour tile can be used on the floor, but take into account the size of the room you’re tiling and what you want the end result to be. Smaller rooms benefit from lighter coloured floor tiles to open up the space. Darker floor tiles are more suitable for larger living spaces and can provide a stunning backdrop to the furniture and fixtures within it. Opt for underfloor heating, also available from CTD Tiles, for extra comfort underfoot.
Black porcelain and glazed porcelain tiles are very durable and easy to clean. Simply vacuum or sweep loose dirt from the surface of the tiles, mop the floor with a mild cleaning solution in warm water, rinse with clean water and finally use a clean towel to dry.
