  • Types of kitchen floor tiles

 
Ceramics and Chinese tiles are similar, both of which are made of high-temperature clay to create a durable tile. Both of them may or may not have glaze, but they also have important differences. In the construction of Chinese tile, sand was added to the clay and it was made in suitable heat and pressure to make the tile stronger, denser and less porosity than conventional ceramic tiles. This tile is suitable for use in high traffic places, kitchens, bathrooms, and also for outdoors.
 
 
 
 
  • Chinese glazed tile, suitable covering of the kitchen floor

 
The Chinese glazed tile has a glass cover to create a colored surface. In non-glazed tiles, colors are used in clay mixtures, so the color and model are based only on the tile. No kind of grinding or scratching on Chinese glazed tiles are seen. Installing Chinese tiles is difficult and requires special tools and cannot be done by yourself.

Ceramic tiles are commonly called non-Chinese tiles to distinguish between Chinese and non-Chinese tiles. These tiles are thinner and more rigid than Chinese tiles, and they are practically glazed to have a tough surface. These tiles are easy to cut and easy to install because of their thinness. However, the porosity of these tiles is higher than that of Chinese tiles, but in fact glazing on these tiles prevents the water and other liquids that pour on.
 
  • Stone tiles suitable for kitchen floor coverings

 
Stone tiles are of natural stone including slate, granite, limestone, travertine and marble. Most stone tiles are porous and need to be restored with a highly quality rock every two or three years; the rocks can also be polished or sanded. The surface of the polished stone will be slippery when it gets wet, but polishing the stone will make the stone's beauty completely visible. Polished rocks tolerate more shrinkage, but they do not have the beauty of sanded rocks.
 
 

 Disadvantages of Tile Flooring for the Kitchen

 
Tiles are hard surfaces, so falling any glasses and glassware on them will break them and if you stand for a long time on them in order to prepare food and ... you will be tired. Tiles reflect the sound and can create a noisy environment. Soft bathmats like moquette would be good solutions to prevent you from being tired.
 
 Tiles need to be maintained. Although ceramic tiles are durable, but the mortar between the tiles becomes dirty with the passage of time. It’s better to clean the seam between the tiles regularly, or to repair them to make their surface look neat and clean.
 
 
Tile surfaces are slippery when they are wet. If you're worried about slipping, you'd better look for tiles that you're sure of their anti-slip feature. These types of tiles are designed for people with disabilities walking around and check the certificate, packaging and guarantee of originality when shopping.
