How to choose the right floor tiles for your home

It might be difficult to select the ideal floor tiles for your house.

Consider the Room

Here are some tips to help you choose the right floor tiles for your home:

Consider the room where you want to install the tiles.

Pick large-sized tiles for the living room, dining room and bedroom.

Choose the Right Size

When choosing the size, make sure there is minimum wastage during installation.

Smaller tiles are appropriate for the kitchen and bathroom.

Keep in mind that large tiles create less joint lines and impart the feeling of spaciousness.

Pick the Right Color

Choose a color that complements the room.

You can contrast or mix and match the floor and wall tiles and consider a color, textured or patterned accent tile to achieve the desired look.

Consider the Material

Consider the material of the tile. Ceramic and porcelain tiles are popular options for flooring and wall covering.

As porcelain is fired at a high temperature. It is more durable than ceramic tile.

Natural stone tiles are also a popular option for flooring. They are strong and available in a variety of hues and designs.

Think about the Cost

Think about the cost of the tile. Ceramic tile is cheaper than porcelain tile.

Ceramic tile tends to run about 60- to 70-percent of the cost of porcelain tile, on average.
