1 Know where the tile is going to be applied

Before selecting a stone material for your kitchen, it's best that you know where they are going to be applied. For example, certain stone tiles can be placed as a backsplash right behind your stove, or on the walls just beneath the upper cabinet. Tiles are popular decoration materials for the kitchen and can be used as countertop materials and on the floor surface.

2 Know the difference between tiles available in the market

The phrase 'tiles' refers to a material that can be laid on the floor surface in rows and columns. As for the kitchen, you could use quarry, vinyl, bamboo, stone, porcelain, ceramic and even glass. Vinyl, cork or bamboo are often used as floor covering materials on the kitchen. However, ceramic, porcelain and quarry can be used both on the countertop and floor surface. On the other hand, glass are commonly reserved for backsplashes and walls.

3 Determine your budget

There are different kinds of stones for decorating your kitchen. But that also means they come with different price tags. For example, custom-made ceramic tiles can be quite pricey, compared to vinyl or linoleum tiles. It would be helpful that you do your homework properly before settling for a specific tile for your kitchen.

4 Put your household's lifestyle into consideration before purchase

Even though stone tiles for kitchen decoration are resilient, they require some upkeep. You should keep in mind that the longevity of these materials also differ. For the countertop, ceramic material is your safest bet because they can stand the heat from hot pans. They are also easy to clean and maintain. However, a countertop made of ceramic material can easily crack or get chipped as a result of kitchen activities on the surface of the stone. You should also watch out for laminate materials because sharp knives can damage their surfaces. Marble and limestone are also prone to chipping. They are naturally porous and may require regular resealing.

5 Go for a kitchen floor tile that will stand your family's habits

When choosing tiles for the floor, go for a material that will easily stand heavy kitchen traffic, food spillage or cleaning detergents. When purchasing these, ensure that you buy floor tiles branded as ''floor tiles''. If you choose wall tiles for the kitchen floor, the coefficient of friction will be too low, and that means a kitchen floor that is not safe to walk on.

With the 5 tips above, you are ready to visit the stores and make a purchase. Spruce up your kitchen with the ideal stone that is easy to maintain and long-lasting as well.
