Tile in the kitchen – what do you need to know?
First, kitchen tile can be placed as a backsplash behind a stove, or on the wall to the underside of the upper cabinets. Tile is a popular countertop material, and can also be used on the kitchen floor.
Tiles protect the wall from water and grease, and are much easier to clean than a painted wall.
Backsplash tile is frequently chosen as a ceramic tile. It’s popularity is due to it’s versatility; they come in many shapes, sizes and colors and can be installed in numerous patterns. Some options are low cost, they all are easy to clean and to replace.
Kitchen floors are high traffic areas, so you need durable flooring, but due to the possibility of liquid spills, you’ll want a tile that doesn’t get slippery when wet. Vinyl flooring tiles provide excellent slip resistance, and are moisture resistant.
The criteria for selecting tiles for your kitchen remodel will include; your budget, ease of cleaning, how long you want it to last, and then comes the fun part, color, patterns, and dimensions of the tiles.
