  • There is no shortage of material, texture,
    design, and colors to select from when it comes
    to kitchen floor tiles. Nevertheless, you
    shouldnt forget that every tile is not fit for
    your home. It is essential to understand the
    properties, merits, and demerits of each type.

1) Hardness of tile
  • The hardness of the material is one valuable
    property. Based on the ability of the material to
    withstand the wear and foot traffic, the tiles
    are divided into several classes. You can take
    the scale as a reference.
  • Class 1 For no foot traffic. These tiles are for
    wall applications only.
  • Class 2 Light traffic. It can withstand
    soft-soled to normal foot traffic.
  • Class 3 Light to moderate traffic. Can withstand
    normal foot traffic.
  • Class 4 For moderate to heavy foot traffic.
  • Class 5 For heavy to very heavy foot traffic.

  • Amongst these categories, Class 3 and Class 4 are
    suitable for kitchens. They are hard enough to
    sustain the wear and tear.

2) Porosity
  • Like hardness, the porosity of the tile is also
    classified into several categories. Porosity
    means the ratio of air holes to solids in the
    tile.The porosity of a tile decides the water
    abruption.
  • ImperviousThese tiles have water absorption of
    less than 0.5 percent.
  • Vitreous The water absorption of vitreous tiles
    is between 0.5 percent and 3 percent.
  • Semi Vitreous These tiles have water absorption
    of 3 to 7 percent.
  •  Non-Vitreous Non-vitreous tiles have water
    absorption higher than 7 percent.
  • For the kitchen, you should use Impervious type
    tiles.

3) Slip resistance
  • The material of tiles usually  is slippery, and
    it becomes furthermore slippery when water is
    introduced to it.Hence, you have to be extremely
    careful while choosing tiles for a kitchen where
    the use of water is frequent.Choose tiles that
    offer excellent slip resistance. You cant take
    any risk in the kitchen.

4) Color
  • A small room or a room that doesnt have plenty
    of natural light is not ideal for dark shades of
    tiles. You must choose light-colored tiles such
    as white, beige, cream, and sand color.However,
    for a kitchen, you have to consider all other
    aspects discussed earlier.The sturdiness of
    tiles, water absorption and slipperiness, are
    more important criteria than the color. When
    there is any doubt or confusion about picking the
    right tile, it is better to call a consultant. He
    will go through your requirements and give his
    recommendations for the ideal choice of tiles.
