Kitchen Floor Tiles
Kitchen is one of the most important places in our homes, and having a good designed, organised kitchen is essential to our wellbeing. Choosing the right cabinets, appliances, worktops are a huge task as they all need to fit together in terms of aesthetics and colours. Kitchen floor tiles are no different as the tiles are one of the most important design elements since all the other objects are placed on the tiles.
The kitchen floor tiles have a heavy burden, they have to carry all the load that we throw at them, they have to withstand the external forces from the ground (ground movements) and they also need to look as day one after many years.
Kitchen floor tiles come in variety of ranges. The most preferred ones are natural stone or porcelain tiles. Natural stone tiles, as in the name is a natural product and add a different level to any property. If you are looking for luxurious design, natural stone is the one to go for. Porcelain tiles are more durable with much less water absorption hence less maintenance requirements and nowadays natural stone effect porcelain tiles are quite popular. Both have different characteristics depending on the design and both are very popular amongst our clients.
At Stone Deals, we bring the best quality kitchen floor tiles at the most competitive prices. You can be certain that our products are tried, tested and very popular. Some of the ranges that generally sold as kitchen floor tiles are:
Marble Kitchen Floor Tiles
Marble kitchen floor tiles are the most sought after type of tiles in natural stones. They add luxurious look to the place and they generally come as honed or polished finishes. If you have spotlights, polished finish will look fabulous on the floor, however please keep in mind that they will be more slippery than honed tiles. As with all natural stone products, maintenance is essential. Since the tiles are installed on the kitchen floor, spillages may happen. If the tiles are sealed from time to time and spillages are cleaned as soon as possible, then there is nothing to worry about. We also have many size and shape options of marble kitchen tiles such as hexagons, herringbones or chevrons.
Ceramic Kitchen Floor Tiles
Ceramic tiles are also very popular due to their costs as floor tiles. Ceramic tiles, even though they won't be as durable as natural stone or porcelain flooring, their cost element is the reason for choice. We generally recommend ceramic to be used as a wall tile, rather than floor tile, however every circumstances and installations are different.
Porcelain Kitchen Floor Tiles
Porcelain is produced from the same raw material as ceramic, but it is thicker and denser material with superior quality. Porcelain tiles generally have glazed or unglazed surface. Glazed is a type of finish where extra coat is applied on the surface. The glazed tiles can provide more printing options and are widely available (i.e marble effect glazed tiles). Unglazed surfaces are dense, thicker, more slip & scratch resistant with limited colour options.
As a kitchen floor tile, the glazed porcelains are perfect as they give lots of choices in terms of colour and design. Porcelain is very durable also, most of the time drilling into them is a nightmare! Since the water absorption rates minimal, they can be used in kitchens or bathrooms without additional surface treatments. They can also be used in large commercial projects where high traffic is present, such as offices or shopping malls. At Stone Deals we sell the most common porcelain kitchen floor tiles colours or designs and prices are very competitive.
Slate Kitchen Floor Tiles
Slate is a very durable material. They are so durable that they can also be used as roof tiles. Therefore, it is ideal for kitchen floors as well as public environments. Slate kitchen floor tiles are available in a number of sizes with excellent prices.
