When talking about choosing tile flooring, there is no shortage of materials, colors, textures and designs to choose from. First of all, all you need to do is consider the tile hardness, because it measures the material’s ability to withstand wear/foot traffic, as well as scratches. Another important one is the porosity because it is determined by the ratio of air holes to solids in a tile, which impacts the amount of water absorbs. If you want a material that has strength, moisture resistance and versatile design, porcelain is the best choice; durable than ceramic and comes in variety of styles, colors and textures.
Most tile materials tend to be slippery, so ensure the slip resistance. If hardwood is your favorite but don’t want to deal with maintenance, install wood ceramic tile that is highly durable, scratch and moisture resistant. For ultimate luxury and quality, stone tile is the answer. Or if you want a very modern aesthetic, upscale feel, consider concrete tile.
