Stone: Stone, slate and tile flooring is becoming increasingly popular amongst homeowners. While the cost of some of the different stone and tile varieties is still expensive when compared to a material such as laminate, the price has become, overall, more affordable. Maintenance should be considered when choosing a stone or tile floor - natural stone is porus and as such requires increased care and attention (including regular sealing), whereas porcelain or ceramic tiles require very little maintenance.
Stone and tile kitchen flooring options: Both stone and tile are ideal materials to consider if heavy traffic is expected. Stone is a great material to use if you intend to create a natural look in your home. It is a great way to create consistency and continuity if you use it on other areas within and outside the home. Some of the heavy favorites include sandstone, limestone and slate. Left untreated, some types of stones can develop unique tones and textures. As the rough feel of the stone may not always be a crowd favorite, porcelain tile is a better alternative. This is especially true for those who are looking for a more uniform and sleek finish.
The other kind of material that you might want to use for your kitchen tile flooring is linoleum, vinyl, laminate or plank. These are manufactured in different styles - and each design makes them look like a different material from what they are - with stylized textural patterns like wood or stone or marble or mosaic. They are comfortable to walk on, easy to clean, difficult to slip on and convenient to use as kitchen tile flooring. However, they do not look as authentic or as stylish as natural materials, although they are available in different styles, colors and price ranges. They are usually much cheaper than the other kind of tiling - but they require immediate cleaning of spillage because they are not stain proof. The surfaces are easy enough to clean but stains are difficult to remove and the tiling can be dented by wear and use.
