CHOOSING THE RIGHT FLOOR TILE FOR YOUR KITCHEN
When choosing floor tile for your kitchen, choose one that makes a strong design statement and creates the right look for your space. Start with an overall design theme, then choose a tile that highlights the look you're trying to achieve. For example, if you want a kitchen that feels warm, choose a wood-look tile. And if you want a design that is rustic, consider natural stone tile. The following tips will help you choose a floor tile material that will complete the kitchen design of your dreams.
WOOD LOOK TILE PROVIDES A LOW-MAINTENANCE, COZY FEEL
Reclaimed wood will give any space a gorgeous, modern look, and you can achieve the same results with wood-look floor tile. Preservation porcelain tile, for example, makes your kitchen feel rustic, cozy, casual, and comfortable. This line has all the character and charm of real reclaimed wood, with the low maintenance properties of porcelain. These tiles are made with advanced 3-D imaging that gives them the look of real, aged, reclaimed wood.
NATURAL STONE OFFERS A RUSTIC OR POLISHED LOOK
There's no design material more timeless than natural stone, and it's a perfect tile for your kitchen. Stone kitchen floors pair perfectly with industrial designs, old-world-inspired looks, or modern styles, and Archaeology is a great example of a tile that looks like natural stone. It features realistic veins of color that run in random patterns across the tiles in natural earth tones, but it is not stone. The Archaeology collection is glazed porcelain that mimics stone, but with an easy-to-clean, glazed floor finish.
WEATHERED CONCRETE-LOOK TILE ADDS CHARACTER
Concrete-look tile is a great flooring option for the kitchen. It offers a trendy, industrial vibe, comes in a variety of color tones, and is durable. San Savino glazed porcelain offers the look of weathered concrete in shades of gray that matches any kitchen decor. These floor tiles are available in large-format sizes, and with its patterns and shading looks like real concrete.
GLAZED PORCELAIN CREATES A MODERN MEDITERRANEAN LOOK

COLORED TILE GIVES THE ROOM DRAMATIC EFFECT
