Tile flooring is popular for mudrooms, kitchens, and bathrooms because it’s waterproof, easy to clean, and durable. Many styles, textures, and colors are available, which means you can find the perfect tile design no matter what you’re looking for. Tile  installation is fairly easy, making it a great DIY project for homeowners.

Kitchen, mudroom, and bathroom tile floors need to be slip-resistant as well as attractive, so if you want a functional, aesthetic solution that is also more affordable per square foot than most other options, consider floor tile for sale from Seconds & Surplus.

Tile Flooring Materials

There are many options for floor tile materials, each with its own strengths:

  • Marble: Luxurious and great for high-traffic areas but somewhat costly
  • Granite: Strong, easy to clean, and water-resistant
  • Porcelain: Durable and water-resistant
  • Ceramic: Easy to clean and very popular among homeowners
  • Glass: Unique and easy to clean but somewhat fragile
  • Slate: Unique and water-resistant but somewhat fragile and difficult to install
  • Travertine: Luxurious and water-resistant but rather fragile

When choosing the right type of floor tile for your home, you must consider several important factors, including your budget, the room the tile will be installed in, the amount of traffic it will be exposed to, your maintenance preferences, and the style of your home decor.

Ceramic vs. Porcelain Tile

Ceramic and porcelain are the two most popular types of tile for creating a stone look for floors. In recent years, porcelain and ceramic tiles that resemble wood flooring have also become popular. 

These types of tiles have some similarities and many differences, so you must become acquainted with both to make the right choice for your home.

Ceramic Floor Tile

Ceramic tiles are often the best choice for areas of the home with lower foot traffic. They are generally less expensive than porcelain tiles, but they aren’t quite as hard as porcelain and are less resistant to heat and abrasions. 

In addition, ceramic floors are more porous and absorb more water than porcelain floors. However, ceramic tiles are easier to clean. 

Porcelain Tile Flooring

Porcelain tiles work very well in high-traffic areas like kitchens and bathrooms but are typically more expensive than ceramic tiles. They are denser, harder, and less porous than ceramic and offer better heat resistance.

However, porcelain is more difficult to clean than ceramic, so you’ll need to carefully consider whether ease of maintenance is a priority for you. 

Wood-Look Tile

Faux wood flooring tiles are made of special porcelain or ceramic designed to resemble natural hardwood flooring. Once these tiles are fired in a kiln and cooled, a high-resolution image is printed on them to mimic the natural texture of hardwood. Then, the tiles are sealed to preserve that image.

Why do people choose wood-look tile for their kitchens or bathrooms? Unlike wood flooring, which can absorb water, warp, and crack, tile is excellent for high-moisture areas. While real wood floors may be unsuitable for a kitchen or bathroom, wood-look tile is a practical solution.

Colors and Patterns for Floor Tile

Floor tiles are available in various colors, with the most popular being gray, silver, black, beige, and bianco (white) tiles. 

The tile color will define the overall look of your room, so it’s important to choose one that complements the other colors in the space. This is especially true if you place the tile in a room with a backsplash because the two often go hand in hand.

You can choose small or large format tiles, geometric patterns, or random patterns. Geometric patterns can add personality and visual interest to any space while creating a modern look. Random patterns can add energy and a sense of movement to the room, creating a relaxed, casual look or a fun, exciting one.

Best Rooms in the House for Stone Floor Tile

Floor tile is ideal for use in rooms that see moderate or heavy foot traffic, especially those where spills are likely:

  • Kitchens
  • Bathrooms
  • Living rooms
  • Entryways
  • Mudrooms
  • Laundry rooms

Depending on whether porcelain, ceramic, wood-look, or another type of tile is used, tile can make a space look luxurious while improving the overall feel of a room. It is also more durable and easier to clean than hardwood or carpeting.
