Porcelain Kitchen Tiles

How to Choose Porcelain Kitchen Tiles

When it comes time to sell your house, one of the most important factors is your kitchen. As they say, the kitchen sells the house. Your investment in the kitchen is bound to add great value to your home.

How does your kitchen floor look? It may be a relatively small area in comparison to other areas of your home, but there are many benefits of choosing the right floor tiles for your kitchen. But what kind of tiles should you choose?

One of the most practical options for your kitchen floor is porcelain tiles. Porcelain tiles are more durable than any other floor material. The variation of floor tiles available for the kitchen floor is simply staggering. Some of the variations available for kitchens include: polished porcelain tiles, lappato finish porcelain tiles, natural stone look porcelain tiles and timber look porcelain tiles.

Some of the best porcelain tiles come from Europe with Italy and Spain taking the lead. Some of the top brand names for porcelain tiles include Italgraniti, Refin and Pamesa. They produce tiles with cutting edge designs that are made possible by the use of innovative digital technology.

Why not choose large format porcelain tiles instead of small ones. The less visible the grout joint is, the larger and seamless the kitchen space will look. You’ll also have less dirty grout joints to clean.

One of the exciting new ranges of porcelain kitchen tiles is the Olimpo series produced by Pamesa, Spain. The range is designed to imitate the dramatic beauty of Italian Calacatta marble. The contrast of white and bold grey veining patterns is stunning. The tiles are available in large formats including 600x600mm as well as 750x750mm. A polished surface will brighten up a relatively small kitchen area.

Porcelain tiles are very hard wearing, which means you don’t have to worry about damaging the floor by dropping utensils or liquids that could stain or discolour the tiles. Just make sure to get nano pre-sealed products if you choose to buy polished porcelain tiles.
